Creativity, Potty Training and Recycling all in one.

Are you asking yourself, how in the world do these three things go together? I have been trying to potty train my Daughter Kaitlyn. We have been encouraging her to go on the potty for the last couple of months and every time she does she gets a Jelly Belly. This last week I decided to bite the bullet and put her in training underwear. I knew she would need a little more encouragement. A few days earlier I had emptied a Mayonnaise Jar and I saved it so I could make something out of it. It came to me that I could make a potty prize Jar for Kaitlyn and fill it with little trinkets and stickers from the dollar store. Here is the Jar before:

And here it is after:
And the jar is a huge success!!! Three days in training underwear and yesterday no accidents!!!

This is so awesome Sommer! I might have to make one! Brady was potty training so well until the baby came and we keep going backwards. :(

We went through the same thing here, Kaitlyn was doing really good and then Owen came along and she didn't want to do it anymore. So I gave her a little time and tried again. I really have to say Training underwear work better than the pull-ups.
