A Pee Pee in the Potty A Pee Pee in the Potty!

You have to imagine the title with music, that's our potty song! We've sung it a few times in the past couple of days. While Dove was in Japan, Lex and Brody went poopy in the potty but I wasn't quite ready to start potty training with the all of the wackiness going on that the holidays bring. I did give them a piece of candy each and told them every time they go in the potty they can have a piece of candy.

Yesterday for some reason I decided, let's get a little more excited about it, and they are doing great! Collin has been doing super well and has gone 3 times in the last 36 hours on the potty! We definitely aren't hardcore training, just making it fun and more available, but they seem really interested so we may start the serious training in the next couple of weeks. Of course if I were two and someone told me I could have candy every time I needed to relieve myself, I would probably think that they heavens had opened up and swallowed me whole. It may not be the best approach, but hey, I have three boys, the exact same age(ok, give a minute or two), so if a tootsie roll or a sweettart gets us out of diapers, so be it. They only get a piece(and a small one) if they actually go.

Of course, this could be a total disaster, but you never know until you try. I am not looking forward to spending 90 percent of every trip out of the house in a yucky public restroom, but if my little men are telling me they want to take another step forward, I will never hold them back. I certainly don't want them to grow up, but I also don't ever want to keep them down either.

Isn't parenting fun???

Oh, we had a lottery winning moment today also, we scored 3 pairs of shoes, in the same size on SALE!!! DING DING DING!!! It was AWESOME!

Hey, you do what works! Candy is much cheaper than diapers!
