We may have found the secret to getting Megan back on track with pooping on the potty. But I don't want to jinx it!
On Friday, a friend of mine watched the girls while I went to the doctor. She has an 8-year old daughter who has quite the collection of Littlest Pet Shop toys. They're little animals with oversized bobble heads and about a million different tiny accessories. Right up Megan's alley of course. And she didn't want to leave. And she's been asking me nonstop to go back to their house and play.
Which got my brain rolling.
So on Saturday we told her that if she pooped in the potty she could have Littlest Pet Shop. Twice on Saturday she pooped in her underwear and then put it in the potty and tried to make it count (she's a smart girl that one). So we had a little talk and then went to Target and bought a set with TEN animals in it.
As of today, she has legitimately earned 5 of those! I do think she's forcing it out just to get an animal but hey, I'll take it. And if we end up investing our life savings into Littlest Pet Shop, it will be worth it to finally getting her pooping on the potty again!
