Now this isn't the first time we've tried, truth be known but this time it feels right. He is old enough to reason with, to ask questions and understand the answers. Plus he is now at nursery and a number of the other children in his group are already fully trained (so to speak) and I think he is noticing that he still has nappies like the babies. And the one thing he KEEPS telling me is 'I am not a baby, Mummy!'
We have decided to bypass the potty as he is already taller than average and was finding sitting down that low a bit uncomfortable so we have gone straight to the 'Big Toilet'. Well he's got to get used to it sooner or later!
We have a drawer full of new pants and a sticker reward chart. And the little man's desire to be a big boy now. I hope that is enough!

So glad we have a washing machine...
