Sunday night we had a BIG moment… one of those, I love being a parent because I just shared this moment with my kid, moments. I smiled. Cheered. Almost cried.
Before bath time, I asked Avery if he wanted to use the potty. I usually have him sit on the potty before bath time every night. We’re in no way, potty training, just getting associated with it and understanding what to do on it. Well for whatever reason, I remembered I had vitamin gummies from the Costco trip my parents took me on, so I told Avery he could have a gummy (he loves gummies) if he went pee in the potty. Not 10 seconds later, he did! I was so surprised, and proud. After he had his gummy and jumped in the bath, we Face Time called my parents and Avery told them what he did, they too were as excited as I was.
I guess I’m going to use the gummies or a sticker chart – some reward system for him because he’s like me, goal-oriented, haha. Any suggestions?
I’m in no way ready to ditch the diapers, but we’ll be taking more breaks to sit on the potty (we’ve tried a couple more times since with no luck), and I’ll be doing some research and asking around to other mommies about the do’s, don’ts and tricks of potty training.
Please, share your potty wisdom…
