My son has a toddler cousin, Zyra, that fully matches him in destructive ability. If they weren't so sweet about it I think we'd give them to gypsies.
At almost 2 1/2 years old she is getting to the potty training stage. Except there is no training potty here. So she would have to go straight to the full sized toilet on her instructional voyages. Not good.
Yesterday, sweet Zyra announced something in (Filipino) baby talk and then pee'ed herself (so it ran down her leg onto the floor of my house). It's not a BIG deal as the floor is concrete (pretty standard in the Philippines) but I wanted her to have something better.
And of course, I wanted my son, almost 1 1/2 years old now, to have a positive example so he will be easily potty trained himself...
Step 1: Solution to be
So I decided to make a potty for her from scrap wood I have laying around behind the daddy crib (my tool corral used to be my sons playpen).
I brought out some likely pieces and my layout tools to the back porch after I had primered the baby bus bench and got Zyra's father to help.
I didn't even sketch this out as I had a pretty good idea what I was going to make.
