    Cute and Funny Ramblings of a 2 Year Old

    Both of my children are complete chatterboxes they never stop. They both said their first word at 6 months old and have continued to talk ever since.

    How I Potty Trained My 2 Year Old

    This is our potty training story, I’m no expert and only have my experience of potty training my daughter to go on. If you are thinking about potty training a 2 year old and are after a real life story then you may find this helpful. Day One – 28th December 2016 Today I woke up and decided it would be a good time to crack on with potty training Charlie. We had talked about wearing big boy pants a few days before and when I mentioned it to him that morning he was super keen. Previously (about 2 months prior) he wanted to wear pants but hadn’t really grasped the…
