AS ALICE WOULD SAY . . .

. . . 'Uh-oh!'

Yesterday after lunch (I was on the phone and trying to keep Alice in her highchair for a few moments longer while I finished the call - there's another post about parenting skills!!) I produced a bag of chocolate coins. As soon as she saw the coins she announced, 'Pee-pee!'

(I used chocolate coins as the incentive when trying to potty train - they didn't work, Alice would demand 'Cho-cut!' any time except when she'd earnt it! But obviously some connection was made!!)

All I can say is, 'Uh-oh!'

Chocolate coins! GREAT idea. I don't think M&M's would work here, she 'requires' more than one. I am adding this to my list of things to buy for potty training time.

Thanks!

We used Sm*rties as the incentive at our house, and then I accidentally "ran out" and said "we'll have to get more at the store" and then I don't/didn't. Now I'd say we're no longer addicted to Sm*arties for a pee-pee.

The choc-it situation lasted about a month!

And the joys of no dirty diapers makes me sing LOUDLY!!!!
