I was very frustrated as well with potty training. When I was researching potty training a common theme seemed to be praise and positive reinforcement. I came across a website called We hung it in the kitchen and named the little boy on the front of the package, Bobby. My son could not wait to go to the potty so he could push the button, hear the praising message, and get his chocolate reward from, Bobby. It really got my son excited about using the potty himself and it was fun for him. Because he became so involved, potty training was easy. So give it a try. Good Luck!!

Ah yes, potty training. We are supposedly doing this with Simon. But, not really. It's too much work, and we're all sadly lazy.

I'm all about the rewards, too, but I just can't find whatever it will that will inspire Simon like Annie and Clarabel the passenger cars did for Tristan.

Thanks for playing along!

Thanks for the tips, Karen and Dani!

(And Dani, thanks for letting me know I'm not the only mother in the world who's pre-schooler isn't trained yet!)
