After Amy removed her nap clothes and diaper I asked her to sit on her little potty. She did and almost immediately I heard the quietest little tinkle. I clapped and praised her and called Doug upstairs to participate in the celebration. Doug interpreted my call as a plea for help with Tommy who was napping instead of doing his schoolwork (he has stopped trying to do ANY work). After scolding Tommy Doug arrived in the bathroom. “I pee-pee.” Doug clapped and praised her before making a blank ‘what now’ face to me. I need to hide some M&Ms in the bathroom for these occasions.

“Amy come get a diaper.”
“Amy come here.”
Small feet scamper away as toddler giggles. Mom must swoop her up and inflict diaper and duct tape now.
