Since we lived with Maile for a month and she is 6 months older than Charlotte, our two learned so many new things. They both learned to talk better, and more importantly Maile seems to have nearly potty trained Charlotte! Do you want to know how to make potty training easy? Let a 3 year old do it for you!
She would prompt Charlotte every time she went to the bathroom herself and tell her ‘Come Shawyotte, let’s go to da potty. You just have to twy.’ Then she would cheer her on when she went and explain what comes next, ‘Ok, just a wittle papeh. Now time to fush. Ok wash your hands now.’ Both our two now ask to go to the potty several times a day and generally will go. Once we are a little more settled and can focus on it, we will probably go full potty training mode. They are growing up so fast!
This is one of my favorite features in the house. Being able to look out my kitchen window and see my children enjoying their new backyard. It has been entirely too long since we’ve had a real yard and I didn’t realize how much I missed it. Even our dog Scout is having the best time with all the space!
