Potty Patriotism

Like so many of motherhood’s hurdles – weaning, getting the baby off the bottle, remembering that my vagina used to be used for sex – toilet training seemed insurmountable. Now we’ve finally had a breakthrough. Praise the Lord.

  1. How awesome that you’ll only have to change one set of diapers!

    I was a lazy potty trainer too, my son chose to do it himself three days after his third birthday. I immediately got rid of all of his diapers and never used pull-ups or night diapers. In six months he’s had two pants peeing, one poop accident, and one bed wetting. I think they learn a lot from accidents- we never made a big deal out of it, we would say “Accidents happpen, it just means that you have to pay better attention to what your body is telling you.”

    Overall, my philosophy is that they’ll get around to it when they’re ready. And if they don’t, hey, at least you won’t have to worry about them dating.

  2. My mom friends and I all agree that potty training is the worst part of parenting (so far). When I think about maybe having another kid, the sleepless nights don’t worry me, its the potty training! To have to potty train another child sounds like too much!

  3. Hello Daphne,
    I was at your house in August. I am Ava’s grandma and Jason’s mom. We enjoyed ourselves very much at your party for Ava and I enjoyed meeting and talking with you.
    I hope you are well and feeling good. Kylee told me you were expecting another baby. Congratulations!! Is it a boy or a girl?
    When are you due?
    Marcia
