As a parent, successful potty training is kind of like one of the rights of passage. It makes you feel a little arrogant. Right? You know, strutting around pointing to the big girl pants or big boy pants and saying, “Yep, I did that”.
When I potty trained my first child, I thought I had accomplished something BIG!!! I did it! I wasn’t sure what I was doing, but I read a couple of books and then gave it a go. No pun intended!!! It was such a big deal for me that when I trained my fourth and last child by Mother’s Day of that year, I felt like I just got the best gift ever!!! Freedom and no more trips to the store for diapers!!!! Money in the bank!
