Two (ok, 3) lessons (hopefully) learned

(c) 2007 Ms. Huis Herself at

This is Pumpkin's potty chair.

It is here to illustrate #1 of the potty training lessons Pumpkin learned today via trial and error.

To wit: When one sits upon a potty chair with the lid down, a great puddle is made.

This is Emma.

This is Emma's potty.

This is Pumpkin's potty, with Emma for scale.
And the second lesson of the day...

Emma's potty, while cute and small, much like Pumpkin herself, is nonetheless NOT big enough to contain all of Pumpkin's pee and therefore should NOT be used by Pumpkin. Or else another great puddle happens.

The third lesson of the day is Mommy's.

While Pumpkin is doing VERY well at potty training, she still needs a little more supervision. Unless you like puddles.

Ah, lessons for all of us to learn from...

We have the same big potty chair, but we don't have a little one. Puddles are unavoidable to some degree, though.

I thought you only had to worry about puddles if you had a boy- guess I was wrong! :)
