What a week! We kicked it off by potty training our 2.9 yr old daughter. Then the very same day our son came down with hand, mouth and foot disease.
Really? Does it really have to happen that way? Of course it does.
She was already showing progress on getting to the potty so we couldn’t turn back or have a redo. But now we were dealing with two very needy children. One needed constant supervision so she knew where to put her pee and poop and the other one was a winning, crying, sick as sick little baby boy. Mid week after several sleepless nights he started to feel better and she started to catch on to this potty thing. Then she got hand, mouth, and foot and we were pulled back down. Thank goodness their cases were mild. I can’t image the angst if they were severe cases.
After a week of being house bound to the potty and sickness, we are seeing the light. They are sleeping better and their sores are nearly gone. The goal is to hopefully get out of the house this weekend and enjoy some of the 4th holiday weekend.
P.S – potty trained by the book “Oh Crap Potty Training” – it worked great so far!!
