Okay, so Hannah has been going potty fairly consistently since she got her own bathroom until the last couple of days. And, no pooping yet. So, today I recalled something I read awhile back about a mom using M&M's as an incentive to go potty. I don't like the idea of bribing my children with food, but I've become desperate to have this child potty trained. So today I told her that every time she pees in the potty she gets 1 M&M and every time she poops she gets 3 M&Ms. About 15 minutes later I hear her yelling from the bathroom. I am proud to announce that she pooped in the potty!! I've never been so excited to see poop in my life! We'll just see if this ends up working for good. And then I'll be stuck with how to stop the M&M train. We can't be giving M&Ms out indefinitely. Can you just see her going to school in a few years and asking her teacher for M&Ms after the potty break?!
