As of two days ago Laura, my 3-yr.-old, had absolutely no interest in using any other receptacle for her "business" than the all too expensive "Pull-Ups." I had given up hope and was looking for a way to be at peace with my load of never ending diapers.
Then a miracle happened. His name is Elmo.
Friday, Laura sat down to play some computer games and happened upon the Sesame Street website where Elmo has a little video all about "using the potty." This little video is repetitive and somewhat annoying, but I will love it forever, because it was the magic my daughter needed to finally become a "big girl."
We are now wearing panties and I'm so happy about it, I think I could cry!
Now, if I could just get my six-year-old night trained, I could finally be diaper free! (If any one has any tips in that area of my parenting life I would greatly appreciate it. I've given up.)
