I was honestly beginning to think this would NEVER happen.
I have posted about potty training numerous times before .... sadly (and I'm almost embarrassed to say), my first potty training post was a year and a half ago -- at which point, I was pretty sure Lucy was "almost" potty trained.
(insert: hysterical laughing)
Ummm.... that didn't exactly work out.
So, we whipped up another trusty potty chart:
She would get a sticker every time she used the potty ... and when it was filled up, she would earn the scooter.
That might sound kind of extravagant, but c'mon .... I was reaching desperation, people.
(And yes, I was still using the Potty Treats jar, too!!!)
Whether the scooter was really THAT great of a prize ..... or she just finally decided she was ready (probably the case), it FINALLY WORKED!!!
It's kind of amazing how quickly she has transitioned into a "big girl" all of a sudden, too...
(Do you think I can talk her into un-potty training now!?! :-/ I don't really think I'm ready to have a "big girl." I'd much rather rewind, start over, and enjoy the past three years all over again, thank you very much.)
But alas ....
I now have a potty trained child.
Who rides a pretty rad scooter.
With a pretty sweet helmet.
(I think she likes the helmet just as much as the scooter ... she wears it for about 3/4 of her day!)
Safety, first! :-)
My advice to anyone nearing the potty training stage...???
Wait until your son/daughter is begging you to use the potty (no, I mean literally BEGGING YOU.)
Have ZERO expectations and have no estimated time of completion.
'Cause it ain't gonna happen.
At least not if you have a child as stubborn as mine.
At least she's cute! :-)
