Evie has taken potty training into her own hands!

...as in, someone else's potty training! :eek:

Apparently today, the daycare workers told me she was helping her friend with potty training by holding her hand, saying "Let's go pee!". Both of them went to the washroom and used (separate of course!) toilets to pee. Then they went to wash their hands.

I knew Evie is a wonderful little helper, but was frankly shocked that she is helping others learn to use the potty!

Career in childcare perhaps at 2.5 yo? Wink

LOL....I totally cannot take any credit here. My responsibility was to EC Evie until she is "potty trained". But helping others is totally an Evie thing. Smile

LOL!!! That's awesome! I guess Day care is letting her go to the bathroom then? Not forcing diapers on her?

Evie has always been in the toddler room at daycare, as she didn't start daycare until 18 mths, and in that room, they have to be potty trained by 3 yo before they can go into preschoolers room. But right from the get go, they encouraged us to send Evie in underwear rather than pull ups (she was transitioning to underwear at the time), and encouraged potty training/EC whenever they are ready.
