My baby is wearing a shirt today with a label that reads:

size 2T

It makes me want to cry…

Next up… potty training!

We are speaking in storybooks at our house these days. 

When I want to change Babycakes’ diaper, I often find a screaming, boneless toddler in a heap on the floor.  It’s her new way of saying, “I don’t think so, lady.”  Instead of fighting her, I have to be creative.  Now when it’s time for a diaper change, I’ll ask, “Do you feel cold and wet like Ducky?”  I love watching her eyes get big and round as she points to her diaper and says, “Pee pee!”  It may be a little early to sit on the potty, but it certainly can’t hurt to talk about it.

Potty training is “fun” for kids — especially the treat part, right?  Pee on the potty and you get an M&M… you know, unless you have food dye allergies.  And a sensitivity to anything vanilla flavored.  Oh, and add the newest to the bunch — a nut allergy.  I can just see the scene now…  “Go pee pee on the potty, Honey, and I’ll give you an edamame pod.  Do a #2 and you’ll get a carrot!”  That should go over well.  Perhaps she’ll just do it for the sense of pride and accomplishment it brings her. 

Or maybe she’ll gladly accept
checks and cold hard cash.

  2. We made a sticker chart for my daughter. I printed a really cute border on plain white paper with the title “POTTY-TASTIC” and taped it on the wall by the potty. Then we went to the store and bought FUN stickers (she picked ‘em out.) Everytime she pottied, she got to choose a sticker for her chart. If she pooped, she got two stickers. They we’d dance and hoop and holler like she just won the Superbowl. (Another bonus…while she would sit on the potty we would count the stickers, name the colors, shapes, etc…)
