Maybe I Can Potty Train Her


That’s the old cracked toilet that was taken out of the studio when the new one was installed. My neighbor, Jim, suggested I use it for a flower pot. However, the trash people will be picking it up in a special pickup.

In the meantime, perhaps Maia could learn to use it! And then move inside for good! Or—-

We’re discussing.

    I have my inside bottle babies trained to potty in a low tub filled with pine shavings. They use it almost all the time except when all three try to get in at once then someone’s rear usually sticks out over the edge :-) I’m sure Maia COULD be trained.

    So isn’t not just Pennsylvania people that recycle toilets into flower planters? My former neighbors had a tub, sink AND toilet planted with flowers, drove my husband nuts.

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
