LOL! I wanted to come up with a catchy title for this post, and now I just think it’s corny. Oh, well. My blog…I do what I want.
So it seems that things associated with a toddler all start with “T”.
#1 – Toliet training
We have entered the wonderful world of toilet training. For the last 3 weeks, we’ve been taking Munchkin to the toilet, even with a special little seat, and “away she goes”. Sometimes she has even told us she has had to go. Not with any consistency mind you but it’s a start.
That leads to…
#2 – Training pants
I’ve decided that she needs them. Last weekend, she told me 3 times in 30 minutes that she had to pee. You can’t deny a “trying to be toilet trained” toddler that she’s not allowed to go so we went. And she did go every time. Yeah! But getting her dress has become time consuming and therefore frustrating. Doing up 8 snaps on the cloth diaper and cover combined is not something a 17 month old wants to wait for. So the hunt for good cloth training pants has begun.
I think I’m going to stick with the Motherease brand which are the same cloth diapers that we use. Their message board has many good comments about them and we have no complaints about their diapers.
#3 – Teeth
AAAAhhhhh! She has 14! Tuesday she cut both, yes BOTH, upper canines (eye teeth). This explains the fussy, crabby mood she’s been in for the last little while. Last night she was so clingy that she ate her dinner (all 4 bites of her grilled cheese sandwich) sitting on my lap, cuddled into my shoulder. There was no bath and putting her her PJs on while stuck to me was lots of fun. Luckily she was so tired that she went to sleep fairly quickly.
