Of all the tips and tricks that I have been reading about potty training lately, this one is by far my favorite, and it's also the ear worm that I can't get rid of.

I have a Mommy confession to make; I am dreading every second of potty training my almost three year old daughter. We have been undergoing what I call "soft training" for months; meaning we sit on the potty, we have the big girl underwear, and we read The Potty Book for Girls daily. I can also admit that buying the fancy singing potty and the pretty princess undies, plus constantly talking about the cool reward treats to come, are all just diversions because I am afraid to actually enforce potty training bootcamp.

It's now time for me to put on my big Mommy pants, arm myself with a potty watch, buy stock in Lysol wipes, and sing, apparently.

I'll do whatever it takes to make this potty training process as quick and painless as possible. If you have any other tips for success, PLEASE share them below.  I need all the help I can get.
