After several half-hearted, failed, attempts at potty training, we now find ourselves being led by Elspeth herself. Several times in the last few days she has requested to use the potty or the toilet, and we have happily obliged. I’m so proud of my not-so-little-anymore girl! It seems that she has simply decided she is ready, she wants to. Prior to that decision, no amount of cajoling or bribery would convince her to sit on the potty.
I find that the promise of a little bit of TV or playing with the iPad is sufficient reward for her; I don’t need to use stickers or charts or chocolate (yet).
I’m very pleased, and I hope this continues and improves rapidly!
