Noah pretty much always tells me when he needs his diaper changed, so I figured it might be time to start the whole potty learning process. I brought the old potty chair up from the basement, and gave Noah a little crash course on what he was supposed to do. He seemed to get it, and actually acted pretty excited about the whole thing. We've tried it several times now, and here's how it always goes down.

1. He sits on the potty.
2. About 2.4 seconds later, he gets up to look inside and see if there is any pee there. "Pee?"
3. He appears surprised that the potty is empty, then shrugs and wanders off.
4. About 3.7 seconds later, he pees on the floor somewhere.
5. Immediately after that, he runs to find me and show me the puddle, all the while clapping, pointing excitedly, and exclaiming, "Pee!"

I guess he hasn't really got it yet.

Oh, Sarah, I was also laughing out loud! Do you think they still make those wooden potty chairs with a little tray in front that locks the kid in? That would be a good purchase, if you can find one.

Ok. So he is ready, just hasn't figured out the logistics yet. Here is what we did. Sit him on the chair and also give him his breakfast there. We did this with DOminic. Gave him a bowl of dry cheerios and before he was done eating he had peed. Good luck
