Potty training

Miss A. declared today, at the ripe ol' age of 2 and a 1/2 that she is wearing UNDIES. Oh dear, oh yeah, oh.... I'd don't know how I feel about this. Such a bitter sweet event. Yay, I'll save $$$; yuk, I just had to clean up poo from the floor, her legs, her undies and the potty. Anyway, how i feel about this is a little irrelevant as she has decided she is ready and so I will suck it up, get out the Pine-o-clean wipes and go with it.

On a more positive note i found the coolest rewards chart ever. Made in a collaboration between Maddie from Lil' Magoolie and Mari from Small for Big

How good is that!!! Click on either of the links above and you can download the chart which can be used for anything... chores, temperament and POTTY TRAINING. Brilliant. There is also a boy one. Also on each site are different links on using positive reinforcement and the chart itself. Get goin' and head on over.

So, yay for positive reinforcement, yay for superhero's and YAY for awesome rewards charts (but boo for poo on the floors - oh well I feel a little better about it all now).

So goodluck everybody and if you'd like to give me some tips, I'd love to hear them.

Thank you thank you for the kind words! Our chart definitely came in handy for my girl's potty training journey - and it was a loooong one.
Best of luck with yours!

Good luck - just remember what seems like a long time is actually no time at all. By Christmas you will be smooth sailing :)
