The little Fox was toilet trained before he was two. It was great! The impetus came from using cloth nappies. Sure there was the odd accident but he was such a willing participant, he wanted to put his number one & two’s into the potty. Lucky me he made what can be a difficult time easy.
Given our success with Fox I introduced Poppy to the Potty before she was two. Like Fox she picked it up easily….initially. After she had successfully deposited her business over a period of months into the potty she stopped. Let me be specific: she stopped making despots of the number two variety, those she saved for her undies.
I tried talking to her, no success, a star chart, no success, growling at her, surprisingly that also brought no success. Then I brought in the big guns ‘Dora Stickers’, two Dora stickers of her choice for a number two deposited in the potty.
success sweet success! This week has seen deposits of both numbers in the potty, without any prompting or pushing, no cleaning soiled undies. Today Poppy did her number two business, unbeknown to me, then brought the potty to me to show me, it was the best surprise I had all day, seriously! Thank you Dora. May your reign be long-lasting.
