Here's another vote for the indestructible & wonderfully cheap IKEA towels!! I always grab a few when I happen to be at the store. You can never have too many.

My mother did a version of this on me and my brother (20-30 years ago), and I was potty trained by about 10 months. She would still put diapers on us when going on long trips, etc., just to avoid accidents.

One story from my childhood that she'll never let me forget was when she put a diaper on me when I was about 2 and a half - it was for a long trip that involved a flight, and she didn't want to go through the hassle of taking a toddler to a gross airplane bathroom. But I refused to "go" in the diaper even though she encouraged me to, and I stubbornly held it for 4 hours til we landed because not peeing into a potty/toilet was unimaginable to me. Needless to say she didn't waste her money on diapers after that.

warponey - I made purposely didn't label my vast array of glass spice jars, with the intention of "training" myself to learn how to distinguish between ground cumin an coriander, parprika & chilli powder, curry powder and turmeric, etc., by smell and sight.

It has *kinda* worked, after a few hilarious mistakes.

We've had a few close calls with the salt & sugar!!
