Popsicles


For those of you that know Chloe, she is addicted to popsicles.  I don't know if I could have potty trained her without them.  They were the best motivator ever.  Seriously, I think we went through about 100 of them when we were trying to get her to use the potty over a year ago.  They worked 2 fold too-reward and kept us on the toliet!  Minah isn't too fond of sweet things but she likes to do what her big sister does soooo.....she had to try one.  It was a pretty hot day so it seemed like a good day to give it a try.  Daddy opened it and she tried eating it.  Surprisingly, she didn't dislike it.  I wouldn't say she loved it but she didn't hate it either.  I think she felt like a big girl.  Since then she has asked for more.  Well, she goes to the freezer, points, and grunts.  When you open the door she reaches for the popsicle and smiles and laughs when you take it out.  We've figured out since she really doesn't want to eat it, it is better to just not open it and let her suck on it until she tires of it (about 2 mintues).  :)
