Abigail's 1st Big Girl Bike!

A few weeks ago, Abigail got her first big girl bike! She had been asking for a bike, but every time we were at Toys r' Us we would try to get her to ride the bikes and she would get frustrated and get off the bike. Still Abigail continued to ask for a bike. James & I planned on buying her one for her birthday, but she was able to get the bike as a reward. Abigail had regressed in potty training in the poop department, so I developed a sticker chart and told her she could pick out a toy when she got some many stickers. Well, this method worked in helping my already potty trained child get back on track. The first toy she picked out was a small $20 toy. However, this time she picked out the bike & we decided to go ahead and get it for her as a reward because she was so excited about the bike! Thankfully Abigail stopped asking for the stickers after she goes potty so we don't have to worry about buying anymore toys. I admit the bike was a little too much to spend for a reward. Abigail is one spoiled little girl! She loves her new bike & has enjoyed riding it around our house! Mommy & Daddy are so proud!

Yay Abigail. Congratulations on both of your accomplishments. Getting the potty training down like a big girl AND getting the bike you always wanted. :)

How awesome!!! I need to think of something to do to get Jayce more excited about potty training! Maybe stickers will work. He's not into getting candy at all!!! :O)
