Day Three

...of potty training. Or, not so much training as just giving it a whirl. Yesterday we bought a glass jar and some M&Ms. We filled up the jar in front of Beanie and told her they were special and just for when she went peepee on the potty. So now we have special star stickers and M&Ms.

This morning was day three of pee on the potty. Yesterday we only caught a tiny bit. This morning she did really well. I gave her the sticker and the M&M. She's never had a M&M before and she really liked it!

A little later (maybe ten minutes) she comes over into the kitchen, signs more, sticks out her tongue & points at it, and points at the M&Ms. I felt her diaper and it was big and wet so then I was left trying to explain that we only get M&Ms when we pee in the potty, not in our diapers.

I guess tomorrow I'll have to try and get her to sit on the potty for a bit longer in the morning. She kept getting up this morning and I kept sitting her back down. We have a potty book that's she been reading, but maybe I need to get another book for the bathroom?

I'm glad we waited until now to potty train because she really seems ready. Maybe more ready than I'd like her to be, haha! Like I said before, I'd really like to wait until after we get back from Georgia to really go with potty training. We could always wait until we get back to really try and get big girl panties and all.

Anyway, I'm so proud of her and absolutely dying over the fact that she was sticking out her tongue and pointing at it for more M&Ms. I hope my explanation was two-year-old friendly!

  1. We are doing the M&M thing! I love the idea of having them in a nice glass jar for a great visual reminder!!! Good luck and KUP!
