However, I know that many of you out there are in the throes of potty training. Have you seen this video?
I'm not exactly sure I would want my kid doing this dance... at least in public! Keeghan LOVES the video though and we've watched it about 100 times today. Who knows, maybe I'll start potty training him soon after all!
I've found that you have to find the humor in potty training. My most favorite story is when I was potty training Kassidy. She was absolutely refusing to go on the potty. She would hold it all day if she had to. I tried EVERYTHING. Begging, bribing, you name it, I tried it! Just as I was about to give up, we were planning a trip to Disneyland. I told Kass that if she wanted me to buy her toys at Disneyland we couldn't buy diapers anymore. We didn't have money for both. Viola. She was potty trained. Day and night. Booger. I knew she could do it!
Fast forward a month or so, and we're at Disneyland. We went into a store and I handed her a $10 bill and told her that was her diaper money and she could buy anything she wanted. She picked out a book that played music and took it to the cashier. She handed the cashier the money and said, "My mommy can't buy me diapers anymore because I'm using the money to by THIS book." Nice. That'll teach me!
