iWe've enlisted a new ally in our war against the diaper with Ishu. Well two allies, really. First is the book "Once Upon a Potty"-- which is a child appropriate, but anatomically correct how-to manual for pottying. The second is my dad.
Ishaan has always had a soft spot for my dad (the feeling is mutual, I suppose), sparing him the worst of tantrums; and giving at least reluctant compliance to most of 'Dada's" requests. So one day when they were over, I asked my dad to ask Ishu to sit on the potty. Ishu ran out of the bathroom, and into a neighboring doorway and slammed the door on my dad's face. PottyNO!
A few days ago, we asked my Dad to read a bit on of Once Upon a Potty to him (we've changed the name to Jai in hopes that Ishu would more readily identify with him)
Oh well... I'm sure we will be in diapers for a while. We really aren't pushing pottying so much, but it would be nice to only have one in diapers!
