This inspired and true story began when our grandchildren, Emily and Speight, visited my husband Bill and me during the summer of 2012. Our daughter Jennifer challenged us to potty train Emily while she was visiting. The challenge turned out to be both fun and successful, with all of us collaborating as the amazing experience developed. We want to share this experience with others in the hopes that it will spark imaginations everywhere so children can be potty trained in a fun and fanciful way. We thank you for reading Macaroni Ponytail and hope you and your child enjoy it as much as we enjoyed experiencing and writing it. (Irene Menendez)
