Claire now uses the toilet exactly like an adult. She has graduated from all props, including little her step stool and her toilet seat topper. She just hops up on her tip toes, does her thing, and hops back down.
This new independence started almost exactly when we first came home with baby Molly. Perhaps the arrival of baby Molly inspired Claire to demonstrate her maturity. Or maybe Claire is just trying to drive home the irony that we are starting the whole potty training process all over again. Yes, even as we clear the various toilet accessories out of our bathrooms, we are in the other room changing dirty diapers.
