We are in the throes of potty training and by “throes” I mean Henry has no interest.

He is now two and a half and I’m noticing that other kids his age at the playground and in gymnastics class are not in diapers.
We did get him a Paw Patrol toilet seat and he likes to sit on it then throw toilet paper in and flush it.

But the actual act of going the bathroom on the potty is not happening.
My friend said that she let her boy run around the backyard without a diaper and let him pee in the grass which he LOVED. Then, she’d take him to the toilet and try to reenact.

Let me tell you, when we told Henry he could pee on the bugs in the backyard this weekend…HE WAS IN HEAVEN! It hasn’t transferred yet to the actual toilet, but we are hopeful!
