He Peed on the Potty! (kind of)

We got a little potty for Milo about a month ago and have just been letting him sit on it and telling him to "teetee on the potty" when he does but not really expecting him to and giving him tiny treats for doing that but haven't really been pushing real potty training because we don't feel that he is truly ready for it yet. So far he had yet to actually pee in the potty. But tonight when I striped him down for his bath I put him on the potty while I ran his bath and the next thing I know I looked up and there is a puddle on the floor in front of the potty! I had taken the little boy pee guard off the potty because the lid didn't close with it on there and now I know why they put it on there in the first place. He sprayed down the front of the potty and on to the floor and missed the bowl entirely! LOL! Ah, the joys of having a little boy :) I missed the whole thing too because I wasn't excepting him to actually go. I was turned around getting his bath going so I missed the first time my first child ever went on the potty (or the floor in this case). He still got major props for it though and TWO potty treats (Skittles)!

Ah yes, the joy of little boys. Congrats on the potty success! I can't believe he is growing up so fast!

How fun! Potty training. You are doing the right thing setting him on the potty and especially at bath time. Sounds like he is getting the idea. One thing we have done is give one treat for peeing and two when they FINALLY do the other. :) Another good treat is small colored marshmellows. Fun way to learn colors too. Of course skittles are great too. :) You are doing a good job!

I concur with everyone else--congrats to Milo on his first in-(sort of)-potty-experience!
