We've been starting to talk to our daughter about using the potty. We've taught her about the toilet and how we use it, have taught her how to flush and how to wash her hands, and we read books to her that have characters that use the potty. She even squats when we ask her if she's going potty.
And today she decided to try it out... with one of her dolls.
A visiting family member had used the restroom but left the toilet seat up. Since he doesn't have kids of his own, he didn't realize that an open toilet is like a beacon for small children. Of course, we didn't have anything to stop Anne from opening the toilet in the first place, so this incident could have occurred even if the toilet lid had not been left up.
So even though our daughter isn't potty trained yet, her doll is. Or maybe not... maybe my daughter was just "dropping her doll off at the pool."
Yes, that's right, we have an Amazing Potty Training Doll. Or should I say, we had one. We sent the doll to a farm in upstate New York to live out the rest of her days.
