Potty Training Journey

Yes, it’s that time. We have embarked upon our journey through Potty Training Land. My little sweetie is turning 2 in September and we’ve introduced him to Mr. Potty. He seems to be receptive to the idea, and loves hearing the music in his potty when he pee pees. We’ve started him in the Pampers Easy Ups, but we’re also going to try Huggies Pull Ups to see which works best with him.

I decided to purchase this adorable Fisher Price Cheer For Me Potty. I love the shape, it looks so much like the real thing and I thought we would have an easier transition when it was time to move him to the toilet. I also love the smiley face on it. I haven’t placed any toilet paper on the holder yet, I’m afraid he will cover my bathroom floor with it.
The potty is battery operated and plays music and gives words of encouragement when he poopies and pee pees. I love the fact that he must actually pee pee or poopie before the music will start playing, it’s suppose to be an incentive for using the potty. The handle on the potty makes a clicking sound when it’s pushed. He gets so tickled. I reward him with Parental Praise too. Gran claps, dances and sings the Big Boy Potty song. Here it goes: Pee Pee on the potty, Pee Pee on the potty or Poopie on the potty, Poopie on the potty. I believe Kirstie Alley sang this song in Look Who’s Talking when she was potty training her son.

Xavier loves stickers, so I’m going to make a poster and start rewarding him with Big Boy Stickers. I’ll implement this award system next week. I looked at some of the charts on the market and thought I could create one as good if not better than those available.
Stayed tuned for more adventures on our Potty Training Journey. If you have a Potty Training story or tips that you would like to share, I would love to hear them.



  1. All kids are ready at different times. Just remember to be patient! Some older kids learn easily, but many kids lost interest in training at the very time parents are ready to pull their hair out from changing all of the diapers! It is a learning process for most that takes time and commitment.

  2. Potty training stuff just keeps getting better and better.  Almost makes me want to have another one!

  3. We're going through this right now too.  I try to only use the pull-ups for naps, nighttime, or when we go out.  I found if I put one on her during the day she won't use the toilet.  She seems to be getting it.  I give her stamp on a pice of paper every time she goes and when the paper is full of stamps she gets a prize (something from the dollar store) She loved for me to stamp her hand too, so that has been a big hit for us.  Good luck!

  4. Good luck with your adventure! Got a feeling that potty's gonna get more play than pee, lol. It's so cute.

  5. Use the Huggies! Pampers don't have the velcro so you have to take off all their clothes to get them on/off. PITA! Trust me.. lol We took the longest time getting it done but when we finally told her no more diapers, she was trained in just a few days. You will love it once it's done. Goodluck!

  6. you know charlotte was pretty easy so i dont have a ton of advice. Although i used those mini M&Ms to reward her..they were smaller and she got less sugar. Once she was ready, she just basically did it…i got lucky!


  7. Good luck with your journey, it seems like potty training can be a daunting task.  That potty looks really cute!

  8. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
