A fellow momma of multiples shared her potty training success using a cupcake reward, and since the M&M's weren't cutting it we decided to give it a try.
Hayden sat on the potty and pee'd this morning at bath time, we were unprepared...there was not a cupcake (or M&M for that matter) in the house. So she got a sucker, yeah not so great right after a bath. Jason ran out to get cupcakes, while he was out I got to clean up a pee accident from Lily. He got back and the cupcakes were introduced, everyone wanted one, me included :) but it was explained that these are sprcial treats for going on the potty. Lily and Xander both had accidents and I was done for the day...so those two went back into diapers. Hayden was still holding out, we do plan to potty train one at a time but when all three ask for underwear we indulge them a little. Anyway Hayden pee'd on the potty a second time and got a cupcake. I am still not too happy with letting one get such a rare treat while the other two cry for one. So Hayden got a whole mini cupcake, Xander and Lily split one. Hayden was in a diaper for nap time, good thing because she woke up wet. After nap though she went back in undies and pee'd on the potty for a 3rd time today...with no accidents in between!!!! She got a second mini cupcake and a song sang by yours truly which she loved :) But alas all good things must come to an end it seems, with 20 min to go until bedtime Hayden had a #2 accident. She didn't freak out over it and even said she wanted to try again...so we will have to see how tomorrow goes. So far I gotta say the cupcake is kicking the M&M's butt.
Loving her sucker, and becoming a sticky mess in the process!

Cupcake time! Hope we are eating a lot more cupcakes tomorrow!
