The kids must be potty trained by September or they can't go to preschool, so I decided we needed to really give this potty training thing a go. I have dreaded it and put it off as long as I can.
SO, I read the book on potty training triplets....
Everyone gets their own potty and we have books for everyone to read while sitting. Notice we have a book about every Wiggle. Grace's loves them in this order...Greg, Murray, Dorothy, The Dog (she refuses to call him Wags) and Jeff. She doesn't care a bit about Anthony. I don't understand this at all...Anthony is HOT!
Oh, and also notice they get to potty in the hallway. Our tiny bathroom doesn't allow room for the whole family to potty together.
Mack and Sophie have also decided that the inserts in the potties can also be used as hats. Lovely!!!
We also have educational books and videos. Mack has 3 books...he needs all the help he can get.We even have boy and girl pull-ups and cute underwear and panties for when we get really good. So far the underwear and panties have only been worn as hats (what is up with that!)
Bribes!!! When all else fails, give them candy! Sophie like the gummy fish (I call them potty fish) and Grace prefers the mini M&M's (although she really doesn't require a bribe...watch for more on that later). We have not found the bribe for Mack yet. He really wants the gummy fish but not enough to sit on the potty even WITH his diaper on. He will ask ever so sweetly..."Please?" and I reply "if you sit on the potty you can have one". "NO POTTY" is his only response before he tries again, even sweeter..."Please".
Well, we have all we need. Now if someone could come to my house and do all the work. Please.
