An End Of An Era



Terry and I hung this dinosaur poster up in our main-floor bathroom almost four years ago as a potty-training aid for Ethan. We hoped having something interesting for him to look at while he did his business would make potty training process go more smoothly. Looking back, I think the M&M’s we gave as rewards had a more positive impact than the poster. But, since we didn’t want to jinx our success, we kept the poster up, just in case. Then we forgot about it until a few weeks ago, when I realized my both kids have been potty trained for more than a year.

My, how time flies.

M&Ms are the magic of potty training.

and of course dinosaurs.

That's one era that we can really rejoice in getting past!

Yup, M & M's definitely have magical properties!

Just think of all they will know about dinosaurs now. :)

the best news is that both are trained! so what if it was M&M's or dinosaurs, at least the training is done and completed!!

I think that was quite useful. I mean, I am sure i am going to have dinosaur posters in the bathroom to potty train my kids, when I become a mom, i.e. :)

This is not about this blog entry but I am having trouble finding your email address. Do you have a natural receipe for skin care and acne. My roommate has horrible acne and would try just about anything.

My daughter had a potty book that she liked to read. I can't seem to bring myself to part with it.
