So we've had a little potty chair sitting in our bathroom for months now. I have no intention of putting in the effort to train E any time soon but I figured it would be good for him to at least get used to the idea of it.
Well, to make a long story short, despite my lack of doing anything potty training related E used his potty the other day to avoid getting his diaper on.
I usually let him air out a bit after a bath or shower because I can only imagine how uncomfortable wearing a diaper all day every day can be but as soon as I start to suspect he may be needing that diaper soon, it's back into clothes for him. Well, that day, to avoid the diaper, he ran over to his potty and sat down.
Of course I thought he was just sitting there to avoid his diaper until he exclaimed a few seconds later, "Did it!" I skeptically walked over to see what exactly he did and, sure enough, he did do it!
I'm still not going to work on potty training any time soon but I definitely found that morning's events to be promising. Maybe he'll just potty train himself in a few months. I can be optimistic, right?
