On Monday, Pearl was standing in the bathroom naked. She looked down, pointed at herself, and said "pee." Then she let it go on the floor. I was surprised because I had no clue Pearl even knew what pee was.
We figured if she was that aware, it was time to get her a training potty and at least give it a shot. Now she has her own little toilet, a book about going to the bathroom, and a bunch of reward stickers. I just have no clue how to really get started.
I'm hopeful that some of you moms out there who have been through it will give me advice on what worked for you. She isn't quite 17 months old yet so I can try explaining things to her, but I'm not sure how much she will understand. Pearl already loves her potty though and had her first pee right before bath time today. We were both very excited :)
