15 month stats and my evil pedi

N had her appt today, one month late no less
She was 23 lbs (75th%) and 32 inches (90th%) - my long and lean lady!!!
All went well although she did not like those shots one bit. She now has 10 teeth with two additional molars on the way.
My pedi was talking about a strategy for when kids don't share (I didn't ask so not sure how it came up ) She was saying that if C had a hard time sharing that on the next gift occasion I should buy something that he really wants for N. Then when he wants to play with it I should tell him that it's not his and since he won't share, she does not have to share either. She is young enough not to know the difference but it would drive the point home to him. Again, no problems with sharing right now but I like the way she thinks.
We talked about doing this for potty-training as well. Why not try putting N on the potty and giving her attention for it and seeing if that prompts him to want to go. She was saying that for boys it is usually something that just "flips the switch" and that may just do it. Hey, I will try anything and it certainly makes sense to me that he would be annoyed if his baby sister was getting attention for going on the potty.
