Potty training–we’re getting there

Yesterday marked one full week of zero accidents with katelyn. We are still in shock with how easily and quickly it happened. One day she willingly put on undies and the next day she was finally doing #2 like a champ. She was so excited. I was so excited. So excited that I had to take a picture of it. I’ll spare you that.
Now she is perfectly capable of going all on her own, though not always willing. Unfortunately, today I found out that letting her go alone isn’t always the best idea. I hope she really enjoyed that half a roll of toilet paper.
A week or so before we hit the potty training thing I decided katelyn needed some type of reward. Something besides a sweet that she could get excited about. So I bought some craft fuzzies and a small jar and introduced the “good, happy and helpful jar.” It took a while for her to get it but its worked wonders. It’s helped with potty training, cleaning up toys, putting clothes away, helping Abby, and even toothbrushing. Early this week she topped off the jar so we took a trip to an indoor play place that she loves.

The girls spent three hours playing and loved almost every minute of it.

You can’t go wrong with a day of ball pits and french fries.
