I love having friends and family gather at my house. Quality time is my love language, and sharing laughs, food and fun with the people who matter most truly fills me up! However, as I get deeper and deeper into the juggling act that is motherhood, I often feel like my hosting skills have gone right out the window.
The desire to have people in my home is still there, but with the constant mess that comes with having young children and limited time to prepare for guests, I now rely on 3 things to help me continue to feel like the hostess with the mostest. 😉
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!
To say my 21 month old is non-stop is quite the understatement. She’s been walking for 8 months now, but as she gets closer to turning 2, I’m acutely aware that she is a toddler through and through! Not only have the number of tantrums been on the rise, but so has her propensity to get into everything! With all her new activity and discoveries, I’m glad we have Huggies® Little Movers to keep her comfortable and dry with her toddler shenanigans!
