We are hoping to have the Design team figured out by Monday of next week, but while we wait I thought we would take a break....... a potty break!
A while back I blogged about my dear Jack who refused everything to do with the potty. Lots of you faithful blog readers gave me great tips and advice and I am happy to report that Jack is now fully potty trained!!
How did we do this? Funny you should ask. As I said before, I had tried everything to "incentivize" that child: treats, sticker charts, toys, bribes. Lindsay (his hero) had even promised to take him on a lunch date if he used the potty. None of this worked.
But what did work was simple. I got a treat jar. I told all the kids (I have four you know) that whenever they used the bathroom they could get a treat from the jar. At first Jack was unphased. It wasn't too hard for him to watch Ethan and Kate get a treat. But when his sister Abby (sibling closest to his age, and his biggest rival for attention) was getting candy and he wasn't it became too much for him. He was on the potty by early afternoon. The candy ran out and we haven't needed to replace it. He is now repulsed by the idea of wearing a diaper!
