Potty Training 101 - Support System

 **Warning: If the topic of potty training doesn't obviously point out, there may be some TMI stories coming up**

I've been reading up on a lot of potty training ideas. Most of it is the same, but there are a few different points or tips here and there. One of the bigger tips is to be supportive and excited! A toilet can look big and scary to a little tyke, so a lot of love and support can give them the confidence they need. 

Also you should let your toddler watch you (and your spouse), use the potty. Not only do they see the process of using the potty, but they know that they will be a 'big kid' like Mommy and Daddy. 

Well today I had to use the restroom, I let Connor know, it's Potty Time for Mommy, and we head to the bathroom. He gets excited, lifts the toilet lid and starts proclaiming "pee pee potty, poo poo potty." As soon as I sit down Connor looks at me with an excited look says "ready, set, GO GO GO!" I just had to burst out laughing! I'm so glad I have the support of my lil guy! I hope he knows I support him just as much!

Does anyone have any potty training tips?
