The Royal Potty

Gracie got a big girl potty today. Not just any potty, but the Fisher Price Royal Potty. Yes, for only three dollars more, you can get a potty that plays music every time your child sits down, and "a royal fanfare for each success!" After setting up the Royal Potty, Gracie promptly spent thirty minutes with her head in the toilet checking out this musical gadget. Good, clean fun!
The Royal Potty also comes with a book for your child to read while "on the pot." It's called (I'm not joking) A Throne of Their Own. The story is so absolutely fantastic, that I have to plagiarize (full credit given to Fisher-Price) the story, so that you can enjoy it too:

There once was a Prince and Princess
in search of a Royal Throne.
It had to be very special for them to call it their own.
All throughout the kingdom,
they searched far and wide.
Saw many thrones along the way,
but they just could not decide.
Until one day to the palace door,
a Wizard came along. . .
with a throne they'd never seen before.
It played a royal song!
The Prince and Princess were curious.
They said to the Wizard, "But how?"
"What magic makes it play a tune?
Please Wizard, show us now!"
"The magic is yours," The Wizard said.
"All you need to do
is sit on the throne and go potty,
to make it play just for you!"
"Oh Boy!" said the Princess.
"Oh Joy!" said the Prince.
"This is truly it. A Royal Throne we'll call our own!"
"Upon it we shall s[h]it."

*Does anyone else think it's funny that they deal with a wizard? Or have I already had too much potty training on the brain?
That aside, I'd love any potty training suggestions. Here's the day's final score:
Panties: 2
Potty: Lots
Not counting naps, of course. xoxo

I haven't tried it with a girl yet, but the doc says Emma should be ready, but I just don't think she is. She let's me know when she is wet, but I am still toying with the idea of starting her potty training. From what it sounds like, you are doing everything right. That is the way I trained the boys. Dylan was pretty easy, no games or cartoons until he went potty when he had an accident, he had to at least try to go. He would immediately go and then he could watch or play again. Didn't take long at all. With Jackson, I had a hard time and asked the doc about it. He told me to put him in underwear, even when we went out, which I protested, but he assured me it would be okay, just bring a change of clothes, "just in case". Luckily, we never had to do that. I put him in underwear and wallah! He was trained. I wish I knew it would have been that easy from the beginning. Good job Gracie, you are doing great. Good job mom and dad.
