3 M&Ms pleeeeez?

We've been trying a reward approach to potty training with Dash; if he gives it a try and succeeds, he gets 3 M&Ms (green&brown&red!). It's been a slow process, but I'm not pushing hard. This morning went well; the M&M reward was Dash's.

Rosie wanted 3 M&Ms, too (and she's way past needing a potty incentive), so I thought up something I've been trying to get her to do for a while: dress herself. If she got dressed all on her own, I said, she'd get the M&Ms.

Two minutes later, here comes Rosie, fully dressed, tights and all! (The tights are usually a problem & they were inside out but didn't bother anybody.) This was almost totally unprecedented!

M&Ms for everybody!


  1. yay!

    i'm actually going through the dressing himself activity for jools. he can do it, and he has been able to do it for a long time. but he refuses to do it. now, he does for the price of a sticker on his chart. recently, i upped the ante - he has to dress himself in the a.m. AND get into his pj's at night to earn one sticker. OH! the agony. it's too hard! i have to wait ALL DAY for a STICKER!

    oh, the humanity.

  2. Is there nothing M&Ms can't do?

  3. Right ON! Think it'll work on my son and his deoderant? Whewie...boys can STINK!! ;)

  4. Oh, I'm with Grandy on the stinky boys. Gav smells like a wet dog when I pick him up from school in the afternoon.

    What if Gav just smeared melted M&Ms on his pits? That should work. Kelly's right...there's nothing M&Ms can't do.
