Poo can be quite a funny topic and in fact poo is something Evie is very interested at the moment as she begins her toilet training process.

It may seem strange that he shared this with me, but it goes back to a conversation we had over a year ago when he visited our bathroom and I had a pile of phone books on the floor (that were a cheap version of the squatty potty) and inquired after them. All I can assume now is that he often thinks about me and my squatty potty when he comes across videos such as this…

What are your thoughts on the Squatty Potty? Have I converted you?
