Not Ready for the Potty

We bought Annabelle a new potty a couple of weeks ago. We figured she wasn't quite ready for it yet, but we wanted her to get familiar with it. Her potty is a singing potty and sings songs when you use it. Within a few minutes of us having it, Annabelle figured out how to make it sing without actually going to the bathroom. Sometimes she's just too smart! =)

Every time I go to the bathroom, Annabelle comes in and sits on her potty. Today when we got home from the beach I went to the bathroom. Annabelle came in and I asked her if she wanted me to take her diaper off so she could go potty. She said "Yesh!" So I did and she sat on her potty and actually started pooping! I was so excited for her. I was cheering for her, but when she turned around and saw what went in the potty she was not happy! She started crying and freaking out. She wasn't done going to the bathroom, but she wouldn't sit back down and she wouldn't let me put her diaper on. So I set her in the tub, cleaned out her potty and then clean the tub when she was done. Needless to say, we aren't quite ready for the potty. At least she is learning what it is for though!


  1. That's great! Wyatt still hasn't even done anything on his potty yet. She'll probably be out of diapers before he is.

  2. You are ahead of us. we bought a potty but haven't had much progress, he just wants to play with it in the family room. Merry Christmas!

  3. Hey! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I cannot believe Annabelle is getting so big!
