I am smiling as I write this because I too, am in the same boat with my toddler. I am in my living room staring at the potty chair that is sitting on a bright yellow plastic party table cloth. One tip of advice that worked for my 2 older kids, was to face them backwards on the big toilet, so that they would be staring at the wall. For some reason, putting them backwards and looking at the tank, made my kids feel more secure. And when kids feel more secure, like they aren't going to fall off the toilet, they are able to relax and concentrate on the task at hand(actually going to the bathroom). Hope that tip helps you.
Wishing you much success!
