I open to the inner depths of my being with courage and compassion

Potty training just got easier for me! Adrienne now has the job of dumping out the pee and rinsing the container and wiping the toilet seat if needed, in exchange for a few M&M's. I was absolutely POOPED after being up for route at 5:00-11:00 a.m. this morning, then doing a bunch of errands for my mom until 3:00, then I helped Mike outside until 5:00 - I disassembled one of those big tents from Costco. My muscles were achy and I was tired. Colette had been sleeping since we got home and was amazingly still sound asleep when I was done outside. So I showered, had a bite to eat, then cozied on into the couch. I was prepared to put on a show if Colette were to wake up, but I then I thought about how she'd probably pee right away and I'd have to get up from my coziness to dump it out. That's when I thought of Adrienne taking over the job. It did't play out that way though...Colette slept until 6:30! But just now Adrienne told me that Colette had peed in the potty chair and I remembered my scheme to get her to do it. But she was happy to do it for the candy, so yippy for me!

What a great idea! I never used the little potties much when potty training because I didn't want to clean them out.
