Aprons and potty talk.

Pixie full lola apron

Pixie children's apron
The first two aprons are going to be part of a raffle for my children's elementary school. Each class has a theme basket, which parents are asked to donate an item for auction. My daughter's classroom theme is Baking in the kitchen with Grandma. Perfect! I can totally do that. (Just in case you're wondering, I did not make her pose like that. She insisted on doing some sort of pose for every picture. She's a funny bunny.) The last little shooga booga apron is a custom apron order for a friend of mine.
On a completely different note, I am in the beginning stages of potty training. Well, not me, but my 2.5 year old son. During the course of writing this post, I have had to leave the computer 8 times to go sit my little guy down on the potty, and he has been unsuccessful in all 8 attempts. He keeps telling me he has to "go" but fails to do so. I think he's obsessed with washing his hands. Would it be wrong to tell him he's not allowed to wash his hands if he doesn't go potty? I'll have to think about that one ;)
Here's to potty training my last child.

i don't think it would be unfair to use the, go pee or poop, get to wash your hands. how cool would it be to say you used "cleanliness" as a reward for your son to become potty trained? ;)

Yes! Positive reinforcement is what it's all about.

That's what I did, as well as flushing the potty. He could not do either unless he went.

The matching aprons are absolutely wonderful. Whoever wins them is so fortunate!!!

Aaahhh, potty training. Well you've already succeeded twice before, so trust the process, but I know it is labor intensive.

Aaahhh, no more diapers. YEAH!

Gorgeous aprons.

Potty training is so much fun. We are just beginning with the twins and the new dog ... my house smells. I might need to find somewhere else to live.

Tonya - Twins and a dog... WOW! You should write a book when your finished potty training.

Even though I don't really like aprons, these ones look very creative, I would get myself one and my daughter would like to get such one as a present - she likes bright colors and unusual ideas.
