Apparently once babies are born, they just keep growing bigger and smarter at an exponentially fast pace? I know it's a cliche, but where did the time go? My baby Grace is two, and very much not a baby anymore.
Now, if only we could be done with diapers... We've had some success and I've even risked it and let her run around naked a few times, but I don't think we're quite there yet. Luckily she still thinks it's fun to wipe, flush and wash her hands.
I found some ideas on Pinterest for a potty chart, so we've been trying that for the last couple of weeks. (How cute is this chart from The Scrap Shoppe Blog?)

Basically with the chart, Grace gets a sticker each time she successfully uses the potty. Once she fills up a whole row with 5 stickers, she gets a sweet treat (jelly beans). When she fills up the whole chart, she gets to pick out a toy at the store. Yes, I know I'm bribing her, but at least it's positive reinforcement, right?
What are your potty training go-to tricks? I'm all ears for suggestions/commiserating tales.
