The Bathroom Stepstool

Right now, Little Blue and I share a bathroom (though I do sneak in and use Pink's now and again). The first thing to buy when starting any potty training is a step stool for hand washing.

Right now, LB's got a little plastic fold up step stool. It's tall enough that he can get to the sink, but small enough that he can haul it down to the kitchen to help with cookies and cake (he loves the handheld mixer). The bummer is that when we open the door, the stool is in the way, and it makes me stand with my legs a little wider than normal to shave and perform other manly duties in front of the mirror.

This, from pottery barn kids, looks pretty slick. The step stool slides out from the bottom, and hides when not in use. I'd be a little worried about it's weight limits and possible scaring of the floor, but the idea is a good one. I don't have a grand to pay for it, but for those of you more "do it yourself" than I, it might be an idea to consider.

Brushing teeth and washing hands are a fun part of the daily routine when kids have their own sink. Our white console has a sturdy step stool that pulls out on glides and tucks back in place when not needed. It has the look of a custom installation, with a thick Carrera marble top, solid wood framing, and a white porcelain sink sealed to resist moisture. A 4" high backsplash protects the wall surface. The cabinet has a slide-out tray. Fitted with chrome hardware. Professional installation required. Catalog/Internet Exclusive.
