What are the signs of being ready to toilet train?

Eric is 2 yrs 3months old and I'm starting to think I should look into toilet training soon. I don't know what all the signs are, but I know he isn't ready just yet, he won't even sit on the toilet! Lol so I don't want this to be a year of training, I want to wait until he is totally ready and get it done with in a week or two. So I just need to know what all the signs of readiness are so I can watch for them.

hi laura , i have two boys and my oldest is 4 years old. i just wanted to let you know that i tried toilet traning at 2 and it went horrible....lol... lets just say there was pee and poo everywhere ....lol...so i stopped because i didn't want to keep making my little boy cry.... so when he turned three he started asking me what mami and daddy were doing in the toilet ...lol... so i put elmos toilet training video and it still didn't work but then i got him kids toilet training books and spoke to him for 2 weeks about peeing in the toilet and we even went shopping for big boy underwear's.... and just by doing that he was toilet trained in a week.... if he keeps peeing on himself then its best to leave him alone... but if he says things like .... mami i'm dong pee-pee or going to a corner to do his number 2's then he might be ready ....
