She can go by herself

This little potty seat with a step has transformed our toileting issues with Mariah.  We think she had some form of bad experience with not being able to "go" when she needed to since she displays some very unusual behavior when she needs to go potty and would also act like she needed to go constantly but not actually do anything.  Now that we have the steps and she can use them herself she "needs" to go SO much less.  The crazy behavior is fading as well.  She has no concept of having to go and just being able to go when she wants.  Finally today she went without finding me and very anxiously telling me how badly she had to go but just sitting there.  I suspect someone always had to take her and she always had to wait.  This problem is much better at home now but she goes right back into the old behavior if we go anywhere else like church or a doctor.  Hoping she'll realize that mama will find a potty no matter what so there is no cause for panic when we go out!

Where did you get that? Is it sturdy, works well for her and you guys like it? We need something like that for Alina, she's constantly wanting to take herself but she can't get up onto the toilet without something to hold onto.

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
