Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The tunnel I am referring to is the “spending $60 per month on diapers” tunnel. It seems as though Avery is showing off all of the signs that she is just about ready to rock and roll with potty training. She can finally take off her own pants, she tells me when she has gone potty in her diaper, and she is interested in sitting on the potty. It is helpful that she gets to watch my older son, using him as an example. It also helps that I have been there, done that. Speaking from experience, I know it is about that time to pull out the stops with my potty training essentials that I have learned over the years.
