Propaganda

We have begun a propaganda campaign in this household. The campaign is pro-potty (or "polly" -- as it's referred to around here).

We have the DVD "Elmo Potty Time," and it is quite popular with the demographic to which this campaign is directed. Unfortunately for us, Elmo's high-pitched voice gives us a headache, and his laugh sounds evil. But perhaps that is what makes Elmo so successful -- he is evil, and uses his evil superpowers on your children.

At this point, we don't really care. Whatever gets our 32-pound karate-kicking expert to use the potty so we no longer need to dodge his whirling feet at the changing table, we're all for it.

I found that it really helped to point out the public restrooms and let my girls check them out and sit on the toilet when we were out and about. I don't know why, but it seemed to flick a switch for them when I showed them that they could use the potty anywhere.

Thing 2 also enjoyed putting her toys on the potty. Including the trucks.
