FabDaughter first peed in the potty when she was 18 months old. The very next night she went #2 in the potty. Score! I didn’t know what all the hype was since this potty training thing was turning out to be super easy! (According to my mom, I was potty trained before I was two so of course its only natural that FabDaughter would be a chip off the old block.) I thought either A) I am a potty training master of the universe or B) my daughter is a genius or C) perhaps both. She continued on this way for a few more days and then all of a sudden refused to go. Uh oh…FabDaughter = 1, FabMommy = 0. I am definitely not the potty training master of the universe. Potty training has been going much better since then and she has been peeing in the potty 100% for quite some time now. #2 in the potty is hit or miss.
We had been using a potty chart made by my friend, The Girl. You can find it here. It is super cute and she has both boy and girl versions too! After FabDaughter was going through a particularly stubborn streak regarding going potty, I decided to use The Girl’s potty chart idea and personalize it for FabDaughter. Everytime she went potty, she would get a jellybean AND a sticker. When she filled up her chart she would get an extra prize like a lollipop. Now, she only gets a sticker for #2.
Here is the generic girl version if you would like to download it.
Here is the generic boy version.
Here is one of FabDaughter’s charts all filled up!
Happy potty training!
