comments on Monday’s post were glorious. I’m so tired of hearing about how you’re supposed to potty train your child… do it when he turns 2, do it cold-turkey, it should be done in 3 days, keep him naked for a day, wear undies only for 2 days, don’t use Pull Ups at all, don’t give up, sit on the potty as long as it takes.
I’m sorry, no.
I like to enjoy my life and my time with my son. Sitting on the potty for 2 hours doesn’t really fit into our schedule. I read a potty training how-to online last week and it was all about how to do it within 3-4 days. It was nuts. Absolutely no Pulls Ups or diapers at night. NO JOKE, you’re supposed to change the sheets every time they pee the bed. AT TWO YEARS OLD, NO LATER. Oh gosh. And then some reader wrote in about how she is a single working mom and the lady said, “Then I suggest you take time off work.”
I just don’t think it has to be that hard.
Says the mom who has yet to potty train her child.
Anyways, y’all made me feel better. I’m glad to hear that your kids weren’t potty trained by two and that they still soak diapers at night. Basically what it all comes down to is that my tiny corner of the internet is better than the big bad interwebs.
And since we’re now in the business of solving life’s problems, tell me how THIS works.
I saw this on Pinterest as a healthy to-go snack for your kids. In theory, yes, this is a great idea. But I have a few issues with it.
1. How in the world did they get a peanut butter jar that clean? I’m assuming it was old and she just totally cleaned out the entire jar. Seems like a lot of work.
2. How did she get that bit of peanut butter in the bottom of the jar?? You can’t pour peanut butter.
3. So what happens after the first bite of celery. Granted all kids aren’t two and a half, but if I gave that to Jansen he would want to dip the celery at least 8 times per stick.
Be wise, friends. Teach me how this works.
