She DOES work!!

During the potty-training process, I think lots of us mommies begin to wonder if our children really do "work?" I've followed the advice of others and not pushed the issue too much with Emma. Everyone has different suggestions of the things that worked with their children and we all know that every child is completely different!

So, I decided I'd just do it my way and B.R.I.B.E. her!! Oh and we can't forget the "name calling" tactic. I sound like a horrible mother don't I?

I just non-chalantly mentioned this morning during diaper change that baby's wear diapers and hmmm...did that do the trick? And, she already knows that she gets a "ma-pop" (translation: lollipop) when she goes.

Well, HALLELUJAH!!, this lil' sista conquered the potty today!! And her mommy couldn't be more proud!! The things that make our day as mommies huh? Really, it has made my day.

Needless to say...her Green Apple ma-pop was yummy and disappeared in a flash. Then, "I want nother 'un mommy!"

Ah...she isn't broken!

Congratulations,Baby! I knew you could do it. I'm proud of both of you. You are such a great Mommy and Emma's blessed to have you. I'm so glad you are staying at home with her. That's one reason why she sooo smart. Of course, the fact that I'm "Gamma" has nothing to do with how proud I am of her.
