So I try not to give my kid sugar. I really try. I do well most of the time. But then today, it occurred to me that what we tried potty training yesterday simply wasn’t cutting it. She wet through every pair of underwear she wore yesterday. UGH!
So, determined to be successful today, I offered her a piece of candy (a mini gummy bear) and a sticker if she peed in the potty.
Well wouldn’t you know, she did just that? And was so proud of herself.
Pee. Sticker. Candy.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
So, we ended up having a great day. My mom came over and played with S for a while. S managed to not go in her underwear for almost 5 whole hours!! Amazing.
Tonight though, we had a bit of a disagreement. You see, S wanted to keep pottying and not go to sleep and M and I wanted (needed) her to go to bed. A battle ensued that was resolved relatively quickly. The reason we needed her to go to bed early is because she’s getting up early tomorrow, for an early nap, and then her first trip to DISNEY WORLD!!!
Can’t wait for tomorrow. Glad today is almost over, but happy with the successes.
