Grand Scale Bribery

I can’t say I’m entirely sold on my own idea, but I want this kid [Ben] out of diapers before he’s three! I’ve resorted to the largest form of bribery I’ve used to date. Yesterday, at Superstore, I purchased this radio controlled “Lightning McQueen”. So far, I don’t know if it is working. He got off the potty insisting (and crying) that “I did pee and poop” when there was obviously nothing in there.

I’m hoping that it will turn out to be the best $19.98 I’ve ever wasted invested, and all my feelings of doubt (as to my parenting technique) will fly!

    Our bribe of the moment for the potty is a sour gummy snack. It’s not working.

    Don’t tell Graham about Ben’s cool truck!!! 😉
