We celebrate a child’s first words, first hair cut, first tooth, first steps. Why not the first flush?
A few weeks ago I held a party with some friends in honor of our babies becoming big kids. We’re all on this journey through potty training and with the help of Pull-Ups we wanted to celebrate our kid’s “first flush”. We’re throwing away (or storing away in my case since I cloth diaper) the diapers and taking out the Pull-Ups!
There was a ton of food, activities, laughter, and fun to be had but the important thing was to make sure our littles knew we were there for them! Potty training is a hard time for both big kid and parent so we hope this party helps the kids feel better about potty training and can look at it as a good thing, not scary.
We had a great turn out for the party, don’t you think? It was fun chatting with the other parents about how they are potty training, their tips and tricks, if they have mastered the potty training skills after already training an older sibling. Who am I kidding, it was just fun to talk to actual adults and not kids, no matter what the topic was – even if it was about pee and poop!
After some fun the kids took a break to color their First Flush celebration coloring sheets! We tapped them up on a a dedicated wall since each child ended up coloring 3-4 sheets. They loved seeing their works of art on display.
Of course we had to end the party with some cake!
I’m happy to report we are doing well with our potty training journey. Kendall has now decided that she wants to use the regular toilet, not her personal potty. We are letting her pick which one she uses which is really helping her train quicker. One reason we decided to train with Pull-Ups instead of using cloth diapers was the ease of being able to get the training pants on and off. It really helps that Kendall can get her Pull-Ups on and off with little or no help at all from me or Daddy.
We also like that each Pull-Ups training pants has a wetness indicator Learning Design on the front (the purple image for girls, blue for boys). The boy version is Cars theme so you will see “95″ for Lightening McQueen and the outline of the Piston Cup logo. As you can see, the girl pack has Cinderella and Minnie Mouse. Kendall loves to pick out which she is in the mood to wear. As far as the Learning Designs there is a princess crown, and a Minnie Mouse shape with bows inside. The purple (or blue for boys) image will disappear when the training pants are soiled. If the image is gone we’ll bring it to Kendall’s attention that she didn’t go to the potty and now the crown is gone.
You can find Pull-Ups pretty much every where you shop available in sizes 2T-3T, 3T-4T, and 4T-5T.
