Have you ever just caught a glimpse of your child and seen them again for the first time? I don’t know how to describe it, but it is like falling in love with them all over again. We do this almost daily with our little one and find it hard to fathom another one just like her. We were just talking again tonight about how adorable she is and wondering what the next one will look like (boy or girl). I can’t believe it has only been a little over 13 months since she changed our world forever.
But then the practical mom part of me kicked in later and I started thinking about the milestones she will hit in the next year. She has already mastered walking, so what’s next up?
RUNNING, JUMPING, TALKING, SINGING (?), DANCING, DRESSING HERSELF, FEEDING HERSELF WITHOUT MAKING THE BIGGEST MESS I HAVE EVER SEEN…
dun, dun, dun….POTTY TRAINING!
Yes, potty training looms large in my mind because of the next one coming along so quickly. Part of me thinks she is starting to show signs of being ready to start training and I know it CAN be done at this age, but I don’t want to rush her. (But we have about 2 1/2 months until the next one gets here, so hurry up already!)
Seriously, I am reaching out to you reader(s) for tips in this department. When? What? How? (You don’t have to tell me why because we all KNOW why) Help, please! Leave a comment letting me know how it is done. I am open to all suggestions, but I am not promising we will do it the way you say to. But don’t let that stop you. OK…DISCUSS!
