Potty Treats: This Is A Thing?
I guess I’ve barely skimmed the surface of the madness that will be potty training once our family decides to really go for it. We’ve been in a half-hearted holding pattern for months, all in anticipation of full-time daycare. The time is now.
I’ve broken down and played the Elmo potty training DVD (and it’s really good – if you’re into that sort of thing), I bought the Elmo potty seat to match (don’t judge, oh ye of wooden everything and DIY toilet paper), and I’ve tried every diaper known to man in hopes that one would magically remove itself from his bum when he needs to do the business of being human.
