Potty-Training-Charts Dear Diary, To encourage my daughter to be a whiz at potty training, I created a positive rewards system. When she goes to the bathroom, she gets two M&Ms. Although she loves the chocolate candy, she needs more motivation, especially after she announced that she was taking her potty back to the store. I don’t know Walmart’s return policy, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t include used toilets.  So, since chocolate isn’t cutting it, maybe stickers and prizes will prompt her to tinkle. Here are six potty training charts to help your little one ditch diapers. The sites offer other themes. You can also make your own using a simple table in a Word document and copying your child’s favorite characters or pictures of prizes. If you’re not a DIY mama (me!), the Pull-ups website allows you to customize charts with your child’s name and goals. Chart1

Not long ago, Heather Hopson hosted a television show in the Cayman Islands. Today, she's back home writing a different kind of story as a new mom. In her 15 years working as a professional journalist, this by far is her best assignment! Growing up, she dreamed of becoming Oprah Winfrey. She was the features editor for her school’s newspaper and a teen talk show host for her city’s most popular radio station. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Michigan State University. After graduation, she worked as a television producer and reporter at CBS, NBC and Fox affiliates throughout the U.S. Instead of heading to Chicago to join Ms. Winfrey on her set, she bought a plane ticket to the Cayman Islands instead. She arrived five days before a category five hurricane! She lived in paradise for seven years, hosted an award-winning television show and traveled the globe with a government delegation. She also served on the board of directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters and spearheaded a Send a Kid to Camp campaign. Then, she relocated to Washington, D.C. to obtain a teaching certification and instruct 8th grade reading at a high needs middle school. She later returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA to raise her daughter Caitlynn, now 4-years-old. During her 10-month-stint as a stay-at-home mom, Caitlynn inspired her to create this blog, and Diary of a First Time Mom was born on Mother’s Day 2012. Two years later, she expanded the family to include 20+ writers. Currently, Heather serves as the communications director at Allies for Children. In addition, she is the owner of Motor Mouth Multimedia, which ranked #49 in Startup Nation’s Home-Based 100 Competition sponsored by Discover Card and Sam’s Club. Recently, The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments selected Heather to receive an Emerging Black Artist award to develop Diary of a First Time Mom.
