potty training 101

Sooooooooooo…. we are working some on potty training these days. We’re not pushing it by any means, but if she wants to sit on it, we’ll let her. Ava had some luck several days in a row of telling us she needed to potty & then proceeded to do so. She looooves stickers, so I made her a potty chart.


She’s way into this. She loves putting stickers on here. One morning she came to me and kept saying sticker over and over. I kept telling her she only got a sticker if she went potty. So when I went to her bathroom to get her hair and teeth brushed, I noticed that there were stickers missing from the reel, and I looked around and couldn’t find them on anything. I eventually turned around and found this:

She had a few good days in a row and then hasn’t had ANY interest for like the last 3 days. That’s ok though. I know she’ll do it when she’s ready. Until then, we’ll just keep encouraging and letting her go when she asks!

Tomorrow is my last day of the work week and Thursday & Friday I get to hang out with my girl! I’m excited to have a few days off with her before she starts school again on Monday!

And just for good measure, and because it’s been a while, here’s the wild lady tonight. Her hair just keeps getting curlier and curlier, and messier and messier!IMG_0874

Happy middle of the week!


  1. How funny! I made Will a chart like yours, and he would do that too if he could reach the stickers.

    We're doing just "so so" on our training. We call the squiggly boxes "bonus boxes," or "Jonas boxes," as Will was saying at first! :-) Our prize for the bonus box is a little Reese's peanut butter cup (probably not the smartest choice on my part), and he gets SO mad if he tinkles and it doesn't happen to be a bonus box he's filling in. I'm hoping he will get to go to the bathroom regularly with other boys at preschool this year to help reinforce this whole potty training thing!

  2. Love the chart!! Even with all the random stickers. :) She'll get momma!! Glad you have some time off with your girl before school starts. Sounds like so much fun!

  3. She'll *get it* momma. I can't type.
