The Potty Chair

Mommy has been pushing us to try using the potty lately. To be honest, I've been interested in seeing everyone else use the potty and I really enjoy helping mommy when Jack or Addison have a "dirty" diaper (mommy said "poop" is not the best word to use while blogging, but I have to say- I love saying it!) usually pointing out to mommy that they "pooped" or had a "big poop" (again, sorry if this is offending any of you, but really what other word would I use?). I also like to get out the wipes and help her out by grabbing the dirty diaper (before she gets it sealed up) to throw away for her.

Anyways- (I digress) the point is- mommy has been reading "potty books" and showing us our potty now for weeks. I think she's expecting us to ditch our diapers and actually use it each time we need to go. Personally, it seems like its such a hassle. I mean, why in the world would I want to stop playing and go undress and sit on a chair with a big hole in it? Its so much easier to just go in my pants and then tell mommy afterwards.

Well, Addison and Jack differ in opinions because they are both falling for mommy and daddy's bribes to get them to use the potty chair. Jack actually requests to go sit on the potty (he knows he gets a M&M if he goes) and sometimes actually goes! Addison doesn't even need the bribe, she likes to sit on it and read her book. She knows once she's gone and she expects the rest of us to clap for her (like its some huge accomplishment). looks like I may be the lonely soldier wearing my diaper soon while the other two take a trip to buy "big kid" underwear. I see no excitement at all in wanting to wear those silly undies anyways. Mommy says the idea will grow on me, but for now I love my diapers.

Here's a few shots of my siblings using the potty chair. Ummm...hello?! Photos on the potty? This is why I'm not going to even attempt it. Also notice the potty chair is pink, another reason I opted out on trying it. Jack on the other hand has a huge love for all things pink. Go figure.

  1. Jordan,
    I am guessing it won't be long until you will think this whole "potty chair" idea is OK. Especially if cookies and juice are involved and if the new underwear has "Cars Characters" on it !! Love you lots, G'ma Jean

  2. Haha - this was funny to read! We have had some adventures over here with potty training too!
