Re: How much credence should I give to that "signs of PLing readiness" list, lol

my dd has shown all the "readiness" signs since she was about 20 mos.. we honestly just sat the potty in the living room so she could get used to it.. she sat on it sometimes..then one day she refused to wear her diaper (we're renters too) and ya know we really didn't have that many accidents.. so we had a lot of naked time.. anyway..stomach flu, new baby, fast forward 8 mos.. i personally don't think kids are ready to pl until they can pull up and down their own pants..when my dd started wanting to be really indipendent and dress herself..thats when she was ready...

*snort* even if they can doesn't mean they want to. My dd now CAN but half the time she'd rather use a diaper (or keep playing, which isn't so much her fault). Today though, while I was on the celeb chat thread, I came out to her 1) naked, 2) pee in her potty chair, 3) she found a crayon and marked the potty chart on the fridge, and 4) then colored all over the entire front of the fridge and 5) asked me to pleeeease let her help clean up lol she's weird but cute. (And earlier today, she asked for diapers, and peed on the floor, and then used the potty half the time. I sooo don't get it.)

My 17 month old DS has started having more potty time. I'm not expecting him to PL anytime soon, but he likes to flush the toilet and wave bye bye to the contents of the toilet.
However, he likes sitting on his potty and hey if we catch anything, GREAT! if not, oh well.

Let us know what you think! Post any "tips" you come across..... I'm still debating about when to start! Dreading it really... but trying to be relaxed about the whole thing.

The first tip is that the earlier you start, the earlier the process will be completed. BUT the earlier you start, the more time overall you'll spend on the process.

You should get the book. It's really a neat read. So far, anyway.
