Potty Chart

So, my 2 1/2 y.o. daughter has been consistently going #1 on the potty since before Christmas....but for whatever reason, she has a hard time with #2. In fact, she REFUSES to do it on the potty at all. If I catch her "squatting" and I try to rush her to the bathroom, she absolutely throws a fit! Now, I know that it's normal for the #2 to come later, but I thought I'd try to see how I could help her overcome her issue with #2....

She's been a little over-the-top with the Little Mermaid lately...She even thought Prince Eric was a cartoon of her "daddy" which I found slightly amusing! **love you, honey!** So, we chatted about the Potty Chart, and I gave her some options of what she could have on it....and I made this for her...

Now to spare you all the gory potty training details, I will just leave you with the fact that TONIGHT....her first night on the new potty chart...she went #2 on the potty!! And she proudly put her first shell on the chart....I just hope this continues!! **fingers crossed**


I put some 'reward shells' on the chart for the pictures...she gets to put one up for each day that she goes ALL DAY on the potty. I know a lot of people give stickers or such for each successful potty endeavor, but since she very rarely has a #1 accident, we felt we needed something a little different. Every five shells she gets, she will get a small prize, and then when she hits 20, she'll get a larger one (TBD at a later date by my hubby and I!)....Man, It will be great if this works! :)

Here are close-up images of Ariel and Flounder...Enjoy!
