Pee, mummy, pee!

Eilidh is 2.
She has Spinal Muscular Atrophy
But Hey! does she love toilet chat!

As soon as someone goes off to the toilet,

"pee, pee, pee, pee!
poo? mummy, poo?
 poo! mummy, poo!"

So off we go
To sit on the potty:

by Tony Ross

She sits there with a humongous smile,
Proud as punch.
No pee or poo though -
Just sitting and smiling.

How an earth do you potty train a little one with SMA?
Niamh was relatively easy.
I guess the Eilidh probably will be too but she's quite a canny wee thing...
I guess we'll have lots of smiles, a few challenges and lots of last minute mad dashes to the toilet with mummy carrying Eilidh at arms length; Mmmm, maybe I'll need an apron....
