I should explain the name of the blog “Little Temujin”.
Our little one is not the typical blue eyed and blond Russian kid. Actually, he has big brown eyes, long lashes and brown (seems curly) hair. He is definitely mixed but we are not sure what races. So, in absence of a true family tree, we decided that he is a distant relative to the legendary Genghis Khan whose original name was Temujin.

We are not there yet

Why was i thinking potty training would be easy? Maybe because i was trained at 12 months? Maybe i just assumed that b/c Vanie is from Russia and from an orphanage he would pick it up faster??? Not even close, at least he doesn't cry any more when he sees the potty.
It took him just a few minutes to take the potty apart and find out where the music comes from and how to play it manually. Training is on hold again fro now.

  1. Alex turns 3 on Thursday and he is STILL not potty trained! Ugh! In fact, he's going backwards!....he was better about asking for the potty while we were in Russia and the first 2 months we were home....now that he is in day care he almost never sits on the potty. I do believe I will be sending diapers when he heads off to college!!
