My life is more crazy and hectic than it should be. I am also very unorganized. I am slowly changing that and would like to share as I go. I am going to talk about going green, things I do to save money, and working on a healthy family. One day at a time. I have 3 children, Josie who is 10yrs old and two babies Ike and Sam who are a year apart from each other. I am nursing and cloth diapering both babies so it does get crazy in my house. I will let you know how I manage as I figure it out.

How do you potty train?
Ike is 27 months old now and finally starting to potty train. He has been using his potty chair or whatever resembled a potty chair for the past few months. The potty chair broke so I had to get Ike to use the toilet. I told him I wanted to hear what his pee sounds like when it hits the water. He thought that was funny and he finally went. Yes! I was so excited.
I thought this would be a good time to reward him with stickers. What two year old doesn't like stickers? Ike gets stars for peeing and big Thomas stickers for pooping. It has been working. It makes Ike's day to be able to put a sticker on the sheet. Sorry about the sideways picture.
After Ike's sticker page started filling up we went to the store and bought him super hero underwear. He thinks they are really cool because Superman has a cape.
We have been doing good and not to many accidents. I am looking forward to washing 1/2 the diapers.
What do you do to encourage potty training on the "big" toilet.
