Potty Time!

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!

Good for you! I am going to try to train Max starting tomorrow! I'm a little scared, but I think he'll do alright. He already asks to do poops. Now we just have to get him to realize when he's peeing in his pants!

Way to stick with it! I am happy to hear she is doing well. Go Brooke (and go Kendra!).

I am sure that Brooke will appreciate all of these lovely pictures of her that are now on the internet. ;) Blackmail. Miss you already. Good job Brooke! Love you.

That was me....my comment published twice so I deleted one. Just in case you were wondering if there were any "creepers" on you blog. ;)
