Potty Costumes

If you're looking for some great party costumes, I can't help you with that.  But potty ones, yes.  I have a 2.5-year-old who would love to model off the latest trends.

{ He says he's a sailor.  Looks more like a cowboy to me. }
{ He's also into astronauts now.  This is unlike any astronaut helmet I've ever seen. }

Needless to say, potty training is not going exactly as planned (nothing ever does with parenting).  I'm trying not to stress about it, and you gotta love the boy for his creativity.  Doing this in the dead of winter is not the brightest idea on my part, either.  We'll be more diligent about it when the weather gets warmer and CJ can run around in his undies.

Lord, please give me an added measure of patience.  And thank you for days that are never dull.  Amen.


  1. I couldn't help laughing when i saw the potty on his head!! Don't worry he'll get it eventually.

  2. Hey, he's quite creative. Thank God for our sense of humor. Maddie's in the same boat...maybe planet. I'm guessing they won't be wearing diapers to kindergarten.

  3. I sent these pics right away to James at work so he could get a good laugh. Yes - sense of humor helps tremendously! It's nice to know I'm not alone in the potty-training battle. :)

    Joy - I do hope our kids will be potty trained by kindegarten, although we joke that at this rate, Nathan and CJ might be potty-trained at the same time. :)

  4. My son will be 2 next month and that's what he does with the potty too, lol!
    Btw, we've got the potty book by Karen Katz and it's awesome! After reading it, the next day my son went potty in it and got the idea, although it's not working every time, it did helped a lot, he would sit on the potty and point to the book :)
    Btw, your son is really cute!!

  5. Many parents will actually put off vacationing until the potty training of their child is complete. For others, we embrace the challenge of traveling to far off destinations, with the potty seat packed, and the diaper bag at hand. It may seem like a lot of work when the goal of a vacation is to get away and relax, but if you change your perspective, you will see that there are many positive aspects about potty training while your family is on vacation. I have found a system of travel potty training that is not only fun, but successful too, even with a more challenging child. Susan.N
