Way too stupid and vulgar to even consider. There is nothing to celebrate. They all learn to use the potty. What we have here is pathetic women doing anything to get attention.

I'm disturbed, and a little disgusted. While I get it totally, it's particularly special when you get your little one (or little ones) potty trained, WHY are we, as a society, turning this into a party-worthy event? Has our nation honestly gotten to the point where a party is necessary for everything that happens in life? Gender reveals, baby showers, welcome baby parties, potty parties, birthday parties, first day of school parties, kindergarten graduation parties, 5th grade graduation, 8th, high school, everywhere you turn, we're throwing a party for some "milestone," real or imagined. I get showers, birthdays, and HS/college graduations, but all the others? It's just too much, people. I'll be honest, as a parent, I don't want to get your kid a gift for a party just because he uses the toilet, like everyone is expected to learn how to do eventually.

We're teaching kids to be entitled, simply by showing them they should expect a party or reward for doing things that they should be doing/learning to do anyway. Want to use positive reinforcement while teaching them? Go for it. It's still not a momentous occasion for anyone but your own family though.
