Re: Dear DH... pick less expensive things to bribe with!
I used small toys as positive reinforcement for pooping on the potty, dollar store stuff mostly (dora, diego, whatever they were into at the time). With DD1, once the little things were gone we got her a bike (which was needed anyways!) and told her that was her final "prize" for PT.
H...mom to three silly girls, 7, 5 and brand new!!!
Plus two dogs, and oh yeah, DH!
