What motivates you?

Is it new fuzzy slippers?

Um I meant princess fuzzy slippers?

Or getting to drive by "the really cool house" down the street?

These two things are really working for Charlie. So far I'm an advocate of waiting til 3 to potty train, only because both of my kids have done better then-early attempts were a big FAIL. Waiting is not for everyone but I'm pretty pleased with how she's doing. Big changes coming next week for Ty nighttime diapers. I know he's old to still be using them but we just now feel like we can handle the extra work come with underwear at bedtime. Ahem.

And since I've needed a little motivation of my own during potty training, mom gave me this

Ahhh it really helps me!

I can almost see it from where I sit waiting for Charlie to go potty. Isn't it cute? She made the green one and I got the other two last year.

Okay back to the grindstone. Y'all have a great evening!

Good luck with the training! You are brave to begin before the holidays!

We're waiting til 3 for Luke also and R is JUST NOW dry most nights...not all, just most. Like as of 3 or 4 weeks ago. She has been potty trained for 2 1/2 years!!!!

I also waited until Jillian was 3! And I think at 4, which is around the corner we'll start talking about the change to panties at night. Also at 4 she'll go to a big bed. To be honest I'm not looking forward to that. She is such a good sleeper and I don't want that to change.
