TWINcredibles vs. The Potty...

The TWINcredibles have been interested in the potty for about 5-6 months...OK well, Super Si has been, Wonder Gab is not so sure! 

In May it had gotten to the point where Si would go potty on the potty every single time he needed to go. He really wanted Gabbi to "go potty" too, but she wouldn' matter how long or how often she would sit on the potty. With his twin showing no interest, Si lost his. This is no big deal, I mean they were only 19 months.

Their older brother was interested in the potty before age two and using a potty game was potty trained within a week. 

Let the games begin...
Mama's Potty game - 
all you need is a 

  • a potty 
  • a egg timer
  • a reward for when they go it is a treat or a prize they can play with.

For my game I set the timer for 15 minutes, once the timer rings have fun and race to the potty, I found with our older son the more excited and animated I was the more fun he had. I set the timer for every 15 minutes for one whole day. Then the next day 30 minutes and so on. I never scold when they don't go potty and I never scold if they have a accident...I'm the one training them so it is my responsibility to make sure I am doing my job! When there is a accident I usually say things like "uh oh, now lets go try on the potty" and I also shorten the time on the timer by 5 or so minutes. 

I can't wait to see how the TWINcredibles do with the Potty Game!

I'll keep you posted!! :)
