Dum-dums may be my new favorite food... Can I admit that? Okay, second to spinach and tofu. They were purchased to incentivize using the potty for a certain toddler of ours and have worked wonders on that front (this in an otherwise candy-free house).

In fact, it has been so successful that we have decided to extend them as a prize to anyone in the house who successfully uses the potty. Let's just say there have been more bathroom trips than ever. With flavors like strawberry shortcake, coconut, and cotton candy, who wouldn't love them? Delicious. And did you know that you can save the wrappers and send them in to get prizes? Ben and I must be particularly immature, because this has been very exciting to us-- as in, we actually talk about it at night after the kids have gone to bed. I wonder what we should get? I'm leaning towards the Frisbee. I think Ben should get the lunch sack. Who knew that going to the potty could be so much fun?

Too cute! I never knew that you could send the wrappers in. Glad it is helping with the pottying! What a good little treat.

Sherri, it's actually worked wonders.... and yes, there's nothing that a good dose of humor can't fix!
