Thanks to our Facebook fans for sharing their hilarious potty training moments!

Funny Stories from Facebook: Part One

Baby Alex from Potty TimeRecently we asked our Facebook community to share their funniest potty training stories and got some great ones. Here is the first installment of funny stories, with more to come later this week. Enjoy!

Rachel on the Making of Potty Time!

Rachel Coleman, co-creator and star of the award winning Signing Time, recently wrote a blog post about what’s in Potty Time and why it only took her short 10 years to create it! Well, we are of course very thrilled that she did, and the approach she takes is supportive, child-centered, and flexible enough to fit any family’s potty training methods.

And while you read the fun back story to Potty Time, be sure to check out her hilarious outtakes! You can certainly see why she is star of stage and screen (and yes, she’s just as much fun, and just as petite, in person)!

Aaron Coleman, Rachel's husband, gets silly on the Potty Time set!
