The boys have been potty trained for a while but still struggle with the toilet. Potty training was a mammoth task and took us a few attempts before we had more tinkles than accidents. I found it super hard because Kaitlin and Jack both learnt whilst at nursery so I was a bit like a chicken in headlights with the twins.
Once potty trained the next step is using the toilet. Easier said than done especially boys and teaching them to tinkle when you’re a girl and can’t show them. We are making progress with sitting on the toilet though. The sitting part is all thanks this prince George toilet seat and step.
The boys have loved using the toilet seat and step. It allowed them some independence which they are really taking advantage of. When they need the toilet they now ask to go upstairs and they can pop the seat on and use the step to get up themselves.
The boys have now started to use the step to become more independent when washing hands and brushing teeth at the sink. The best thing they like using it for is getting in the bath. Euan’s favourite saying at the minute is “I do it by myself” they are becoming so independent.
Using children’s characters to help children develop life skills and learn things is great. We did a fire safety campaign last year with Fireman Sam and the boys really did take note. They come running to me when see a fire on TV screaming fire mum, fire and tell me they have called Fireman Sam. They also move and take action when ever our smoke alarm goes off.
The boys love Peppa Pig and are even more excited at the new episodes that have been released this week. You can catch one tomorrow morning.
As well as our toilet training pack we also received some hand and face wipes which the boys have loved using when messy. We also received the brilliant Peppa Pig Golden boots book which Kaitlin must have now read at least 100 times. They love having a bedtime story and this one seems to be a favourite at the minute.
