Well, there's only some truth in that. Ethen is self sufficient and has been for over a year. Judah, on the other hand, has now successfully used the potty 2 times...on his own promptings. Just before tubby time, I usually ask or put the potty ring on the toilet and sometimes Judah will sit (unsuccessfully) on it, but 2 days in a row (only 2 times total) he has actually had success! Yipee! What a great accomplishment for a boy who is not quite 1 1/2 yet! FYI: we are not expecting much. He'll get it in his own time. Just wanted to celebrate his successes!
