I am not at all averse to discussing (in detail) my *eh hem* regularity. Fact. Even so, I could never have predicted just how much I would think/talk/write about the bodily fluids of my child once I became a parent. First you have the meconium, then you’re changing and endlessly oxycleaning those yellow poops out … Continue reading Oh poop.
Those first four days really had me questioning our timing. It was hard to see how all those minute, incremental successes were going to come together. I was actually quite ready to chalk it up to a failed experiment. Well thank goodness we stuck it out because it really paid off! On Saturday, we had the most … Continue reading Potty training: final thoughts.

She was especially tickled at the part where Prudence bends over to show the hole where the poop comes out. Class gal, that one! We brought her potty out while we … Continue reading The potty

I’ve barely written about her development of late (ok, I've barely written--more on that later) because it no longer feels like something I can sum up in a post. Maybe it never … Continue reading Peanut’s crazy fast development update
A few weeks back my mother-in-law suggested it was time to start potty training little L. And by suggested, I mean she basically told me I was a failure of a mother for having a child still in diapers at 18 months. Ok, so she didn’t come right out and say that exactly. It went … Continue reading Sh$t talk.
