i have been dreading this since before i even had kids. no exaggeration. but several weeks of false starts and a few external factors conclude that it, in fact, is time. sam’s about as thrilled as i am. so to boost our excitement i (thanks to some fab advice from friends) have created some incentives.
first, we pimped his potty. for my cars loving boy, a lame, white, plastic potty becomes a finn mcmissile potty!! complete with cars meanie, professor z, inside for sam to ‘shoot to kill’ with his wee. all very exciting.
second, a sticker chart. a wee, a poo and a good try all get a sticker. and ten stickers buys a new car from the shops.
third, an interactive lesson from daddy.
fourth, a week at home in the sun, in the garden, naked, so it all sinks in fast.
sam and i are both nervous. we had a little pray together this morning that we would have fun and chill out.
i would love to hear your potty training stories and tips! i am sure they will both encourage and entertain us all!
