Potty training Success

I'm happy to update that the potty training is going terrific! It looks like we can say goodbye to diapers, well for atleast one child anyway. We were at our widths end with this potty training business so we recently purchased a book which helped us tremendously. Luckily the book didn't have too many pages and didn't take long to skim through, it just took some motivation and a little studying. It is guaranteed to successfully potty train your child in less than a day...and low and behold, that's exactly what it did! I was kind of apprehensive in the beginning just because I had tried everything in the past with Avery and didn't have results. I was amazed how quickly she caught on with some patience on my part and lot's and lot's of praising, of course. There were also lots of cookies and sugary drinks involved, but hey, it worked. Avery is consistently using her "big girl potty" now and hasn't had any accidents since the second day we started training. She hasn't even hesistated to use the "big girl potty" when we are out and about. I told her I am so proud of her and we can soon transition her into her "big girl bed." Way to go Avery girl! Mommy is so proud of you!
