Makin’ Momma Proud

A potty training we must go!  Started things last Wednesday and the girl is doing pretty well.  We’ve moved from mom and dad making her go every hour to her telling us when she needs to go the majority of the time.  Yahoo!  Note the tools for success:
1.  Plastic pants- a MUST!
2.  Juice boxes…..lots of them.
3.  Book to encourage "camping out."
4.  Sunny day OUTSIDE….
5.  MY potty!
What I did not mention is a basket of Easter eggs filled with delicious treats to lure the toddler to get the job done. My friend Mariana laughed her head off to find out that our Easter eggs sometimes contain fortune cookies….in my defense, the kid likes them, they are cheap and low in sugar! Hec, I’ll fill up Easter eggs all day long if it means not buying diapers for two.  Yeah, feeling the crunch as we are just 8 weeks away from "Baby Seff" joining the family, and changing two sets of diapers is more than I want to think about.  Let’s hope this sticks….I’m officially committed to the patience and perseverance this thing is going to take.  And yes, I’ve done extensive reading.  Whoever wrote, "Potty Training in Less Than a Day" was an intellectual and not a parent, merely "training" kids and sending them home with their parents left to clean up accidents galore.  Who in the hec is going to master this in a day or less that isn’t reading the book themselves???  If your child has done it, I don’t want to know about it.  All I can think of is one day at a time…..and by George, I think she’s getting the hang of it!  Good job, Ella girl- we are proud of you!
