Getting ready to start potty training- any suggestions?

I'm getting ready to start potty training my 2 1/2 year old son, Ethan. This is a pretty good time for us- no big trips planned, the weather isn't that good, so we won't be out and about too often.  I am scared to death though about the whole thing!

So, does anyone out there have any great suggestions or tips? Any wonderful books or DVDs that we should get?

Any and all ideas are welcome!

Well, before you start you need to teach him about his body and explain, in kid terms, what and how "it" happens. For most kids it's pretty simple because they go with us to the bathroom. I've never potty trained a boy, we have two girls. We also started to talk about they were becoming "big girls."
Good luck!
