- It’s very frustrating to lose your draft blog post. Enough said.
- I *think* Miss T is toilet-trained. I say, “I think” because she’s goes mainly when we prompt her but only, maybe, self-initated twice. She’s been in undies since last Saturday morning (except for sleeps). I’m not sure quite what happened but it was like we flicked a switch, or maybe she did, and that was that. She’s got our “going to the toilet” ditty down-pat and can recite it from memory very easily. But we also know that if we forget to tell her to change her nappy after waking up she gets lazy and falls back to the comfort zone of using the nappy.
- Lil S is so very close to crawling. She can get up on all fours, rock and wriggle around shifting and edging forward, though mostly backwards. She can get across the floor pretty well now through a combination of the above wriggling, rolling back and forth, pulling herself to sitting, reaching and flopping forwards or sideways and then repeating it all again. Her sister started pulling up at 8 months and that is a week away. I don’t know if she’ll follow suit but I know we’ll find out soon enough.
- Fridays may well be mayhem for me. Miss T is staying home from childcare every Friday till the end of the year as we sort out what works best for our family in the long run. I’ve been spoilt (though at a price) to have her in full-time childcare since I returned to work last April. We didn’t want to lose days after Lil S was born and wanted to keep Miss T’s routine going through the adjustment period, so we kept her in. I’ve already prepared some activities and plan a walk to the park for tomorrow. Though it may well end up mayhem for me having two on my own all day for the first time, I am sure it will also have it’s rewarding moments too.
What do you know about toilet training toddlers? Are they only “trained” when they self-initiate every time?
For those of you with littlies at home, do you plan a routine or go with the flow?
P.S: I’m testing some font changes. Is this size is preferable over the size in my previous posts?
