Shhhhh....Listen very carefully, because I am whispering.
Something wonderful happened today. And I don't want it to go away...
Child #3, went all day without a diaper...and...lean in so you can hear...no accidents.
I am using an effective parenting method that I have perfected through these 7 years of mommy-ing...Bribery.
Pee in the potty...one Hershey's kiss.
Poo in the potty...two Hershey's kisses.
Nevermind the bouncing off the walls...nevermind the other children begging for their chocolate...nevermind the blatant disregard for highly educated, morally fortified, honorable parenting systems...
I have resorted to the Real World of Parenting...AKA...Whatever works :-)
And for today...Hershey's and me...we worked.
Please don't say this outloud. I don't want anything to burst our happy, little, victory bubble.
But feel free to pass around some silent high fives!
