Being at my wits end with the potty training thing our newest idea is to let Pineapple run around diaper-less with her dress on (for modesty).
She eats her meals while sitting on the potty. A low chair is her table.
This may be a dangerous strategy, but all of the other ideas quickly lost her interest after a week or two (the dancing, the high-fives, the hoorays, the treats) until she stopped going potty altogether.
However, we know she can go potty every time because she has demonstrated that, she just doesn't want to anymore because the novelty has worn off.
So therefore- the diaper-less idea has just been implemented.
This goes right along with the other changes we have been trying out because less diapers helps the environment and saves money.
This is what I have learned-Environmentalism
leads to healthier living
which also leads to frugal living
which leads to simple
) which leads to accumulating wealth
(saving money) which leads to being able to give to and support good causes
It is a circle and I believe that it is the way God intended us all to live.
