nablopomo 13: bright new day

It is a whole new day ... Little 'Ny slept through the night and woke up at 6:15am, her pink eye is gone thanks to modern medicine, and she went pee pee in her potty!


Over a month ago we were on the road to DIAPERFREEVILLE, but due to stomach flu/sinus infection Little 'Ny was not as eager to sit on her little white potty. What really set us back was when she almost fell into the toddler potty at her school -- her little tush just isn't big enough for it.

We resorted to bribery ... go pee pee in the potty, get a jelly bean. Mommy and Daddy seem to be eating all of her jelly beans. But, hey, Little 'Ny really knows her colors now!

I took her big girl panty shopping. We came home with 3 packs. All of them are washed and are now collecting dust in her dresser.

We got her Pull-Ups and Kandoo wipes. She loves the design on the Pull-Ups ... she loves wiping ... she loves flushing the toilet ... for no reason at all.

Then my step-mother-in-law mentioned trying M&M's. So, yesterday I let Little 'Ny pick out a Mini M&M holiday candy dispenser. I told her she could only have one if she went pee pee in the potty. She seemed to be more interested in playing with it than what was in side (she has never had an M&M before).

Then this morning, while I was pulling her mane of hair into a pony tail, she said "I pee pee in the potty, Mommy." I rushed her to the bathroom and plopped her on to her potty. Only seconds later she got this "deer in the headlights" look and I heard trickling in the potty! SUCCESS! I cheered her on, gave her a hug and kiss and rewarded her with one Mini M&M.


UPDATE: Woo hoo! Little 'Ny went pee pee in the potty twice today at school.
