Ella and the potty

I’ve been sort of trying to potty train her, but seeing that Ella doesn’t like M&Ms and stickers just don’t seem tempting to her, I’ve had a hard time finding something that tempts her enough to get her to the potty.

I put on baby legs on her and no diapers. She got the rights with the bear on her bum and we went to the kitchen. Ella was hungry and started going through the snack drawer. I soon noticed that she had peed, took off her tights and told her next time she should do it in the potty and would get an ice cream.

10 min later she sat on the potty, which I had placed between the living room and kitchen and peed quite a bit. Celebration and hugs ensued and she got half a Trader Joe’s bon bons. After dinner she sat on the potty again and peed in the potty!

I think a couple more day and more bon bons will soon do the trick!
