That moment that yuo start potty training and you wonder whether to leave your toddler in their nappy until they're 40! Haha! It's definitely testing ones patience dealing with potty training especally when they tell you "I dunnit in the nappy!" The one thousandth time. However I'm learning a few tips and tricks along the way that I thought that it would be helpful to share.

It's so much easier to start with him on the potty in the morning and evening. After that it's a case of putting him on after every meal. He hasn't been terrible but I think he's still trying to grasp the concept of nappy independence.

A potty in a couple of rooms? I'm  seriously considering this as I have been told how convenient it is. I must admit that I like the idea of that potty being readily available especially when taking into consideration my 'mum's on the go' kind of lifestyle.

A mother's instruction may get toddler on the potty but entertainment will keep them there. There are no rules or pressure so check baby's pace and ask for help if you need it. Fingers and toes crossed that you survive this treacherous journey of potty training cause I knkow I will need all the help that I can get!

Why I chose to write books for children

I have a vivid mind.

I love to wonder and explore possibilities. Sometimes my mind wonders to the most beautiful places and other times I have to switch gear to get control of it. It is a bit of a wild-fire to be honest. Everyday I learn to 'take every thought captive.' That being said some of the beautiful places lead to me writing my first book, 'A Whole New Bundle of Love.'

Empowering my child

Hey there,

Sometimes he repeats it with me and sometimes he just ignores me but I know that what I am saying is sinking in. The most important thing is that I am making a conscious effort to speak good things over his life before he goes into the world and may not receive the same treatment.

Keratosis Pilaris in toddlers

Keratosis Pilaris in toddlers

So I recently visited the doctors for a minor injury and they looked at my son and said "oh he has keratosis pilaris." Thrown off of the fact that I came in for my own health diagnosis I responded with a bewildered "eh?! What's that?" The doctor responded "it's a flair up in the form of a rash." By this time I'm freaking out "is it going to hurt him? Will he be ok? Is it curable?" She interrupts with "he'll be fine, my daughter has it too."
