My goodness it has been busy, busy busy, around here. We have entered what I like to refer to as birthday season where 3/4 of the family have birthdays and we seem to do nothing but eat cake.
I am officially another year older and I keep waiting for that promised wisdom but some how I still do some pretty dumb things. Like decide to toilet train Max as we come into Winter!
If you aren't aware of the torture that is potty training basically it's you madly repeating the phrase, "do you need to go? Are you sure you don't need to go?" Then 5 minutes later there is an "accident" and you spend a few weeks with double the washing and the house stinks, fun times!
So I thought I would make a quick simple reward jar. It's too easy here's how:
An Empty Jar - any one destined for the recycling bin will do
Vinyl - Or stickers if you don't have a cutter.
Decide on a design, and cut it out. I wanted mine to be as subtle as a sledge hammer, otherwise it's just a lolly jar.
Max took one look at it and says, oh he's fishing....maybe it wasn't quite as subtle as I thought.
DIY Delight or Disaster? Do you know I never did this with my older three, they just went when they were ready and it was so easy. Madeleine and Max encourage each other...to not go. I guess they don't want their bare bums out in the fresh cold air. Mind you Max walks around almost naked most days, in spite of how I dress him. This little lolly trick has worked though and we are now competing to see who can get the most lollies. Delight, well as much as potty training can be delightful!
