This beautiful little girl is potty training.
Just, out of nowhere, she started using the potty on her own.
So I decided to get involved to really push it over the edge and take it from trainING to trainED.
|we have two kids!!!! i love it so much!|
Off we went to the store to get some reward stickers. I had been giving her dark chocolate chips every time she went but I thought a non-food reward would be better. More exciting too!
Of course, she doesn't know what day it is, but I thought making it have some specifics like "put your potty sticker here" would make it even more special.
She is doing amazing. Woke up this morning with a dry diaper through the night.
Naps in her panties - dry as a bone.
Had no accidents today.
And she's even gone #2 in there twice. That's huge, people!
Oh, I also got a few little dollar toys as "poopy presents" I know that sounds gross, but I did this all on a whim and that's just what came to mind.
She gets to put a sticker on her chart for every potty. But every poop, now that's reason to celebrate, and she gets to pick one of the toys out of the stash.
So far, so good! We make a REALLY big deal about how cool her poopy present is and that she got it for being such a big girl.
We are so proud of her. And she's proud of herself, too, which I think is huge.
The other day Kevin took her potty and she looked up at him and said "are you proud of me?"
We sure are, Ruby girl!
