Mimi did an excellent job of potty training our little one. In fact, we could not get here near the potty or have any desire to wear her panties (despite their Elmo fashion glory).
She would find the said Elmo panties in her drawer and would come out with great excitement, "Mommy yook!!! Mommy its ELMO."
I would respond, "I know G, aren't they awesome? If you use the big girl potty you get to wear your Elmo panties."
"Tat's ok. I put them back Mommy."
But Mimi is smarter.
In the process she created a potty girl. And a toilet tissue enthusiast.
