Potty Training in 3 simple steps!

 
Our first trip 05/25/2010
 
Well we took the boat out yesterday complete with our toddler & baby. It took quite a bit of preparation and checking the weather to make sure the conditions were good for our maiden voyage. It was really successful, the kids had an absolute blast! We remembered to pack almost everything & we evn managed toileting of our todder while in the boat! All in all, i would say it was a success- we will definitely do it again soon!

Hi Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had a great week! I am sooo looking forward to the weekend! My husband bought us a boat yesterday!! We've never had a boat before so with a toddler & a new baby it should be interesting....... We're hoping to take it out this weekend so hopefully the weather will be kind to us. I'll let you know how we go.........

Hi
I trust you are all having a great week! I have had an interesting one!! A toddler recently out of diapers with an 8 week old leaves for some interesting challenges!! Especially when signing paperwork in a meeting when your toddler announces 'Wee Mommy!" We just made it in time! (With a few nervous laughs from those present!!)
It can definitely be tricky with a toddler and a new baby. I think the key to successful potty training during this period is time; time to allow your toddler to use the potty/toilet at their own pace, time to go & then finish, & then say "Oh Mommy I'm not quite finished! There is a bit more!!!!" I had to laugh when this happened this week, twice in one day!! So I am maintaining my sense of humour through it all, staying positive & reminding myself that i am doing a good job- the smiles and cuddles with both kids reminds me of this!
