31 for 21, Day 15: reading on the potty

i'm not kidding you when i tell you that maya likes to read on the potty. she often asks for a book the moment we settle her on her little training seat.

now a new development has occurred: she wants to hold the book all on her own. she usually asks for the book and will pull it away from you and sit it on her lap. it's very intentional. i think this is so cute and i love that she is already showing independence.

we are thinking it might be a good time to buy a table and chair set so that she can sit there (instead of the potty) to read. even though about 80% of the time when she signs potty she actually has to go, there are those moments when i think she uses the potty to read her book. either way, it's a win win i figure. potty training and books, seem like two good things to me.

Hi! I'm new to your blog. This post hits so close to home for me. It's so funny. It brings back memories of my Carly doing this very same thing as we were potty training her. Still, to this very day,(now she is 7) Carly reads while going potty. So much so, that I was really worried about her going to school and wanting to read while she went potty there.
Maya is a gorgeous little girl. I'll be back to check on you guys more often!

Reading on the potty is a wonderful habit and I am sure she will soon graduate to all the wonderful travel book you keep stashed in your guest bathroom ;)
