Train the beast

This morning while doing some Kangaroo care with Davy, I over hear Ollie playing with Harper. He was being so sweet with him, it kinda got me emotional. In the midst of my tears I hear Ollie tell Harper, "come on Harper, let's go potty on the potty chair. You want to be a big boy like me don't ya?" Playing with Harper is one thing, but potty training?!!! I walk out and tell Ollie how awesome he is, and thank you for being such a big help to mommy. He smiled and kept on working with Harper.
What he didn't tell me was that Scott told him he would buy him a video game if he potty trained Harper.
Is it sad that we are relying on our 6 year old to potty train or 2 year old? Or is it genius. We will see. Know that this offer stands for anyone. You come over and potty train Harper, you get a video game.

I think a little bit of sibling motivation is an excellent idea! And there's nothing wrong with a little "positive reinforcement" in the form of a video game.

It would be amazing if he could do it. I hope he does.

And it's nice to see that amid your responsibilities with Davy that you still have time to highlight Harper's hair. So nice. :)
