Potty Training

When Charlie is fully potty trained, it will be largely due to the efforts of his determined big sister.

Madi recently discovered that some of his little peers have been working towards their potty training goals, and being the competitive sweet girl that she is, Madi clearly wants Charlie to be on par with his buddies.

So, what's a Mom to do?

Let my six-year old potty train my son. That's what.

Is that wrong??

Cause it feels totally right to me.

Madi takes Charlie to the bathroom several times a day and promises to give him "choc choc" for producing something.

Two M&M's for a pee pee
Two M&M's for a poo poo
Four M&M's for a double whammy.

She's got it all worked out, and her program is working.

And, she's got all Summer to get the job done:)

Lucky, lucky me.

So NOT fair!! I thought I'd engage Xandra's help with Milo... so I started giving them each 1 M&M for pee, 2 for poo (though we haven't had any of that yet). So far, Xandra just takes off with her M&M, and couldn't care less about what Milo does in the potty (as long as she gets a treat!). On the bright side, though, Milo is totally into potty training, so he's almost training himself - since his mama & daddy are being so lazy about it!!

Good luck to Charlie & his coach Madi!!! :)

It will be interesting to see how Charlie reacts to the pressure. Madi is such a giving sister and giving child all around.
