Uma: "I think it's time for you to try to go potty."
Staley: "I will try to go in a yittle bit ('little bit.')"
Uma: "I think maybe we should try now."
Staley: "I will just go a yittle yater ('little later')"
Uma: "I have an idea. I'll count to five and when I get to 5, then we'll go potty."
Staley: "That's a good idea, Uma." (Pause while she's thinking about this suggestion.) "I have a great idea. Let's count like this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6."
Staley seems to have lots of great ideas when it comes to potty time. And in the scheme of things, I like this suggestion better than putting her potty chair in her bed or using her bed as a litter box.
That's my gal. Always thinking.
