potty training is really where a mother's patience and love is really tested. i love my boy to no end and i'm really excited when he uses the potty. on occasion he tells us he needs to go, so we put him on the froggy potty. he was doing so well, i decided to attempt it, more than just the occasional rush to the bathroom. i wanted to waited until he was able to get his shorts up and down by himself, but once he started that and taking his own diaper off, i figured it was a go.
