Hello! I have never commented before, but have lurked for a while now. I can't remember how I stumbled across your blog but I've been enjoying your articulate posts and cute boys ever since...

My son had the same fear about toilets. What helped him was not to balance him at the front of the toilet seat, but to shove him right to the back of the seat, till his back touched the tank! That way his legs really spread wide, and he could hold onto the seat in front (this is great at home where you can clean religiously but make sure you swipe the seat first if you go out!) This position gets the kid into that triangle that you used to have to do when they were first learning to sit up, and I think it makes them feel safer. There's one more thing to watch - with boys, make sure IT points down!!!! Good luck.


I think it sounds like a great plan, and plenty of things for the kids to do. Can you get someone to help you with the kitchen? We set our daughter's up the night before Christmas, and with full vision it was still a big pain in the ass. And later we realized that it was supposed to have batteries so that it lit up or something, but there was no way we were taking it apart again to enable that feature.

I'm in the third trimester of pregnancy and my blood pressure has gone up, so I've been told to take it easy and lie down as much as possible. Luckily, my husband was doing the cooking anyway, and I do not object to lying down.

Hang in there! When you get the first one potty trained, the second one will follow, not wanting to miss all the excitment! Be sure and give them a SIGN for "Potty" so they can tell you when they gotta go. Most of us used the index finger into the palm of the opposite side. I hope I am making sense!

We hope to visit you someday to see how we can help.
