A Little Pivacy Pease!

In the true spirit of revolution, reminiscent of women burning their bras, Anna has decided to potty train herself. She is saying no more! to nappies, and don't let the door hit you on the derriere to diapers. Her plastic Elmo potty lies dusty and discarded, untouched for months. No, Anna suddenly decided she wanted to use the 'Big Potty' and with very little else in the way of coercion, maybe a few chocolate-covered pretzels, she is now using the 'Big Potty' several times a day.

I've bought a couple of those plastic child-seat inserts because the sight of her tiny white peaches teetering on the edge of that massive precipice made me a little nervous. Not for her you understand, just the possible humiliation of being that parent whose child drowned in the toilet. So, safe in the knowledge that she's protected from diving head first down the Big Potty I left her to her 'privacy'. And yes, two year-olds in this day and age do ask for privacy, I even heard one of her preschool friends the other day saying he needed 'to hydrate'. Precisely.

So, Anna asked for privacy, and I knew I'd childproofed the bathroom.

I will freely admit that I was the one who installed the plastic childproof latches on the bathroom drawers, and I will also confess that I'm more Spongebob than Handy Manny, but I was not expecting this after her requisite five minutes of 'pivacy':











































...and a poop! Everyone's a winner!!


Is it just me or does she look like Courtney Love?

Great post! It's funny, they want privacy but when I ask my son for privacy in the restroom he just laughs at me!

Summerland girl - that is too right!! Now I get a round of applause from Anna whenever she's with me and I go to the bathroom. Rather embarrassing to be at the loos in Nordstrom and to have a toddler pipe up 'yay Mumma you did a wee wee'!!!!

Too funny! At least she's got the colors pretty much in the right places. I think I got into my mom's mascara once and streaked it across my cheeks. Too cute! Thanks for the pics

That was a laugh! I'm impressed at her talent with the eyeliner - I can't manage that level of coordination after some years of practice....

Greetings from another expat. Just be thankful that wasn't a boy. I have so many photos of my two boys covered in my litstick - great blackmailing material. Why do I keep leaving my make-up bag in the loo?
And then when you take them into public bathrooms with you, they insist on asking where your willy is!

Wow, she looks like lots of fun! I'm always nervous when Noah asks for privacy in the bathroom...
