I have had great success potty training my children in the past. I had a fool-proof system. I started shortly after they turned three, and both of the older kids were potty trained within a week. All I needed was a potty seat, an egg timer, a TV, and M&Ms. Trust me, it works.
Third babies are just so weird.
I don’t know if it’s because all of Emerald’s milestones have zoomed past without even so much as a one minute acknowledgement from her family, or if it’s the fact that most of the time when she learns something new we look at each other and say, Huh. Didn’t know she could do that. But, on Saturday morning Emerald decided to be potty trained.
Not to START potty training. Just to become a potty trained person.
She is two and a half, and she was tired of wearing diapers, I guess.
I guess that’s done now. And, it didn’t even cost me a week’s worth of M&Ms.
She’s been moving and shaking and going about her business for three days now, diaper-free.
Huh. Didn’t know she could do that.
