Toilet-training in all its many forms

We’re knee-deep in wet undies and naked bums at our house these days. Ever since our return from the US in August, I’ve been giving full-attention to Samuel’s potty training progress. Even before his second birthday, we’d practiced using a plastic blue nočník (a training potty, literally in Czech, a piss pot). At our house, it’s known as “Sammy’s potty,” and despite joking threats to use it themselves, the older children have kept their hands off of it. Potty training this time around seems to be going smoothly, at least in my eyes, although if you ask Sammy, he may voice a different opinion.
