The other day I was at BRU and there was a sale going on, so I picked up a couple Bjorn potties (pink, of course). I read somewhere that around 18 months old you should put them in the bathroom so the kids can start getting accustomed to them well before you actually expect them to use them. Plus, the girls (especially Rowan) have been alerting me to needing their diapers changed lately, so they seem to be starting to be aware of the whole potty thing.

Tonight, before their baths, on night two of potties being in the bathroom, Rowan pulled at her diaper and when Chris took it off she sat down and peed on the potty. Then she got up and pointed it out to him. Wow! I'm not crazy, I don't think this is going to mean she's in panties anytime soon. She's 17 months old, for crying out loud. But I'm pretty impressed.

Uh, no photos, for what I hope are obvious reasons.
