And it goes on and on, my friend…

Sorry if that gets stuck in your head, and yes, this is another post about potty training. My son continues to do well. The Little One insists on sitting–it’s really more like bouncing–on the potty a couple times a week. For her age, she is well ahead of her brother and sister. My daughter, however, […]

Are you a Member of the Sisterhood?

My friend, Tess Grant, and I recently realized we have a sisterhood.  We would prefer that it was the “Sisterhood of the Bestselling Novel.” Instead we are members of the “Sisterhood of the Bum.” This is a much larger group.  Anyone with children in diapers or potty training, or new puppies or aging household pets […]

Then both kids slammed on the brakes, threw it in reverse and jammed on the […]

Potty Training update #89869 (or I don’t actually remember)

WE HAVE PROGRESS! Yesterday after much bribing, cajoling and warning, MY DAUGHTER PEED ON THE POTTY!  Yes, she was sitting on the potty and peed.  Not standing near it or on top of it.  Actually sitting ON it.  It was amazing.  It was like seeing a unicorn. (The bribe that worked – going to the […]
