It's really hard because I am an extremely competitive person.
And unfortunately for my daughter and my wallet, my competitiveness has just set in.
You see, lots of J's little girlfriends are potty trained. J is not. She was doing well at daycare for a while, but now...not so much.
So now it's GAME ON!
I spent the morning at Target and Michael's picking up panties (back to that word in a minute) and incentive items so that we can begin the process.
"Incentive items - arts & crafts crap that I know she'll love
She doesn't like M & M's so I'm going to try Skittles
Based on lots of friends tales of potty and advice, I'm going 'all in' on this one - In a few days, we will be saying goodbye to diapers! And from what I understand, once you say goodbye, there's no turning back. So I have to mentally prepare myself for this....the mess, the inevitable frustrations, the constant reminders...but I'm ready.
Panties or Underwear??
My biggest dilemma: Do I call them underwear or panties. J's a little girl - I think the word 'panties' is appropriate - some think it's creepy. I call women's under garments 'underwear', but something about Dora and Disney screams "panties" to me...Mike thinks that I can call them 'panties,' but he can't because he'll sound like a dirty old man. Thoughts???
