It’s that time again.

Calista, 20 months old, December 2009
She's cheeky and happy and on the cusp of growing into a proper little girl!

Calista’s started to become aware of toileting, and I’ve started putting her on the potty several times a day. But unless there’s a breakthrough in the next couple of days, I’m going to put the potty away and bring it out in a month or two’s time.

Cali is happy to sit on the potty, provided she’s adequately entertained…

... or "Pink" is close enough for a cuddle ...

… but she’s yet to produce any tangible results.

I keep reminding myself that it will all come together when Calista is good and ready, and so I’m happy to take a more relaxed approach to the training.
