When experiences or situations are less than delightful, I tend to air on the side of The Glad Game. The optimistic Pollyanna introduced the world this game. The rules are quite simple: no matter what you’re going through, there can be something to be glad about.
My dear friend Amy and I could go pro in this game. We have applied it to many instances, big and small. It’s a fun way to bring positivity back into a moment that is less than.
Potty training is the perfect situation for The Glad Game. It is messy and time-consuming. I have yet to see a mom fist pump in anticipation of starting the process. It is certainly worth the mess and the time. It’s just getting through it.
Here’s to help all of us mamas and daddies get through the adventure of ditching the diaper!
The Glad Game: Potty Training Edition:
I’m glad that We sang songs, watched our favorite cartoons and played dinosaurs while on potty sabbatical.
I’m glad that I am an awesome potty dance dancer.
I’m glad to watch my son celebrate his accomplishments.
I’m glad for a husband who realizes the necessity of diet Dr. Pepper.
I’m glad for Resolve.
What can you be glad about during potty training?
