With all my kids, 1 year marks the age that the potty seat comes out and the fun begins. I never expect them to be potty trained in a week, but we sit and make a huge fuss for months and months, so that by the time they are actually ready- they are used to the whole routine. My goal is to have them trained by at least 2 if not sooner, so I have 10 more months. I'm huge into rewarding super behavior, so every time she sits down she gets a chocolate chip! I know it was completely by chance, but she actually went potty while she was sitting there. After she realized there was a connection between sitting for a minute and getting a chocolate chip- she wanted to do it over and over (isn't that the whole point? Love it! Marshmallows work great too!) I say, whatever works!

The last time my step sisiter came to visit was almost 8 years ago, so we were all excited when Aunt Tawnya came to Boise! We tried to let her relax a little too, but the girls insisted on seeing her almost every second she was here. Auntie came over for pizza and games, let the kids go swimming at her hotel, ate dinner together Saturday night, went shopping, out for ice cream and had lots of fun.It was really nice to have a little time with her and actually carry on a conversation for more than 10 minutes. I'm really happy she was able to come and relax for the weekend. We love you Aunt Tawnya!!!
