Potty Training from an Expert

My expert opinion, based on training 9 children, is that potty training takes a long time.

Like, years.

Each.

At least for some kids.

Yes, I have had potty prodigies, who got the whole day time and night time dry and clean thing down in a few short weeks.

But Rose is more typical.  Yes, she does pretty well during the day. At night, she is still wet. Which is fine.

But even during the day, sometimes life is way too interesting to bother with a bathroom trip and then she gets a little wet as she finally races off to the potty.

This is all fine.  An important aspect of being a parent is tons and tons of patience.  Really. Patience. 

Lots of it.

God given, endless patience.

Pics with Warmies

My wonderful mother sent us mittens and hats and neck warmers, mostly made by her.  And we are enthusiastic and having fun with them.







Oh, the Frisks and Charas deserve some discussion.  They are characters from a game called Undertale.  Miriam accidentally got two of each character for Christmas/birthdays. She could NOT be happier.  Having twins of each is like a dream come true for her.

Family pictures

We took some family pictures and they turned out well!







Because being able to carry your son who is 6 ft. 1 inches tall is important!
