So we tried doing the Marshmallow experiment with the kids last week. We gave each of them one large marshmallow and told them they were free to eat it, but if they could wait 15 minutes, we'd let them have 2 marshmallows. At age 2.5, Zade made it 14 minutes and 30 seconds before he just couldn't take it any more and shoved the marshmallow into his mouth. He was sooo close to making it the full 15 minutes. However, given his young age, I think he did very well. Aria, who's 4.5, fortunately made it the full 15 minutes and earned 2 marshmallows. I'm proud of both of them.
Although Zade didn't quite pass the marshmallow test, he has made remarkable progress with potty training. He's now gone a full month without wetting the bed, so I feel comfortable saying he's officially potty trained both day and night!
