Over the past few weeks I've been working with Eden to potty train her. Some days we seem to do really well. Others are full of accidents and battle of wills. Some days it's my laziness b/c it's just easier to have her wear a diaper. I know I know, bad Mom! But I figure she'll be potty trained before she goes to college, so I'm not going to sweat the small stuff.
One of Eden's best encourager is my niece Brielle. While visiting them Eden and Brielle would go potty together. Eden thought she was such a big girl just like Breille. Nothing like good peer pressure to help :)
One of the other big helps was the crafts we did while visiting. Shay and Brielle have scissors. Eden wanted a pair too. So I made it a goal for her potty chart. When she earned enough stickers she earned the scissors. Plus she gets two M&M each time she goes. she has an immediate reward and a long term goal. It only took her a few days to fill up her chart. She was so proud of herself! And I'm proud of her too.
We still have some work to do and we're not ready to go out in public yet in big girl panties, but like I said, we'll have this figured out by time she gets to college, so no pressure!
The funny thing is Josiah is watching and learning. He already seems interested. I have teased Larry that I'll train our girls and he can train the boys. My guess is he'll be easier to train b/c of Eden. Any ideas
