We are still shocked at how quickly Caroline learned to use the toilet. As soon as she turned 2 1/2, we started training her and that was it. She figured it out in less than a day. Now, she lets us know by rubbing her nose and confirming with her yes/no eye-gaze board. She also knows to "hold it" until we can get her to the nearest bathroom (she actually crosses her legs with quite the force as we rush her to the toilet!). Her school teacher and home nurse also report that she always uses the toilet for bowel movements. Everybody around her is incredibly diligent about picking up the signals. Reaching this goal was a team effort with Caroline leading the charge!
Mike thinks Caroline's success with potty training is due to her eagerness to express understanding of our expectations.
