Potty Training

I've come to the sad realization that I'm going to have to start potty training soon. YIKES!!!

Marshy is doing pretty good when it comes to telling us if he is wet or stinky. Mostly stinky. He starts to walk funny and he misbehaves to get attention. He has also stayed dry longer than he has in the past. Some nights he makes it most of the night before wetting the diaper.

I'm wondering what the difference is between the stand alone potty chair and a potty seat that snaps onto the existing toilet seat? I mean, other than the fact that you have to clean out the potty chair, which is kind of gross.

Also, any tips or tricks are greatly appreciated.

We're going on vacation at the end of this month, and the end of next month, and sometime in August. I will NOT be doing it during vacation. I am not that crazy. I'll probably start around September, which is when he turns 3. (3 is a good age, right?)

My advice is: potty chair that fits on real potty, wait as long as you possibly can (almost 4) before you try, and good luck!

Lola, that was my plan until I heard that both of his cousins, who are younger than he is, are either trained or in the process.
