Claire starts preschool!
4 weeks ago
|I will admit...I did NOT want to potty train Brooke! She is very headstrong (to put it lightly and nicely), but let's face it, diapers are extremely expensive! Day #1: (or should I say just a few hours...not even close to a day) Brooke was a royal mess...and I just about gave up hope! She had 6 accidents and I was so frustrated! I had to wash a load of clothes just so she would have more training pants! Day #2: A successful day of potty training...4 successes and one where she even asked to go to the bathroom (that gets 2 M&Ms!) So...5 M&Ms and 5 stickers later...she has earned a little princess purse. (mind you one time we were in the bathroom on the toilet reading a Nutcracker pop up book for 45 minutes while I scrubbed the tub...but hey...she is got it done. NO peeing on the floor! (Although she did pee on her chair at lunch.) Day #3: It clicked! She even had a dry diaper waking up! It is a miracle and I am so glad we did it! Now days after...she has only soiled one pull up (she has trouble with #2) and even did fabulous on a car trip! She was a piece of cake to train (better than Tori who I trained to early and had accidents for a long time and just recently stopped wearing a pull-up to bed!) AMEN! Hurray for saved money!|
