My youngest daughter is turning 3 in September, and she is not yet potty trained. This is certainly not the end of the world, but it is a far departure from what I originally “planned”.
Like her older sister, she began showing interest in the potty right after she turned two. Without even realizing it, I had mapped out the same timeline in my head that I used for her big sissy. It seemed like we were heading in that direction too, until Lily suddenly lost interest.
At this point in time my initial inclination was to get frustrated and annoyed (I’m being honest). I wanted to get this milestone behind me, and according to the members of the “they society”, they all said it would be a simpler process being that she was my second child and a girl. *Please DO note the sarcasm* haha.
But no sooner than I felt the urge to get bothered, I decided to let it go. I knew it would happen when it happened and here are my three reasons why that’s not a bad thing at all!
I know everyone says it, but I really do have the best mom in the world. I’m so happy we were able to celebrate Mother’s Day together, and althoughcircumstances have been pretty hectic lately, I wanted to make sure I showed her how much I love and appreciate her.
In addition to spending time with my mom, her not-so-subtle hints were duly noted, and we wanted to get her exactly what she wanted. While she definitely appreciated the clothes and accessories she received, I wanted to make sure she had a special sweet treat too! You have to include something yummy, ya know?
