All because of a dum dum

Tyler has been wearing underwear exclusively for a week now both day and night. A few accidents he cleans up himself but not too bad. The key was finding a reward that he wanted. It was so obvious really- he loves lollipops. So I suggested to him, "How about every time you use the potty you get a lollipop?". He loved the idea. So off him and I went to Walgreen's so he could pick out lollipops. (dum dums) Then he gave the cashier the money for them, we took them home and waited. One drink later and woohoo he used the potty. He was so proud of himself. He remembered that he's suppose to get a lollipop and the training began.

Awesome!!! Love when you are able to find just the thing that works! My girls were sooo much harder to potty train than my son!! How weird is that! Hope your weekend is great!

It has been fun catching up on your blog!! I am glad the toilet training is working. I sure don't miss those days. Congrats to Andrew on his eagle project. And I had to laugh at your husband putting his keys in your basket. I have a basket as well, but I always forget to put my keys in it and spend a good deal of time searching for them--and my sun glasses. I hate that. I have got to do better.
