As a mom (and teacher), I strive everyday to engage, nurture, and expand the mind of my little one.
Here you will find the books, music, and activities most useful to me in my endeavors.

Score 2 for the Potty Team

Yes, that's right! Natalie did it again. And this time - more noteworthy - it was not only her second success, but it also was a number 2! Sorry if that's TMI, but really if you're reading a blog about toddlers, you should probably expect this type of news. (Click here to read about today's earlier potty breakthrough.)

Anyway, there was much fanfare and "poo-poo in the potty" dancing. After a glance in the potty - by all three of us, it's safe to say that the results were, in daddy's words, "substantial."

As for the photographic documentation, I did NOT go there ... and I won't. But I am beaming with pride and feeling like we are in the right place at the right time with potty training ... only tomorrow (and the next day and the next day) will tell :)

You're gong to have to write a detailed "How To" now, you know that, right?

Woo hoo! Good Job Natalie! I took a picture of Brody's first "job" on my phone...only to send it to daddy. It's still on there, though.

Congrats Natalie! And Congrats to you too.

Though I don't have kids I've a puppy with whom I'm having troubles with potty training. Success seems to be far far away!!!

Way to go Natalie!!! And way to go to you too! I know potty training isn't always easy, but that's a big breakthrough. I hope she keeps it up. Good luck!!

One thing I have come to appreciate as a mommy - the importance of poop! Way to go NHV!!! That is so exciting! Still just laughing while on the potty over here!

wow good one Natalie,
i've just discovered your blog. I'm mum to a just turned 2 year old little girl in England. We too are tackling potty training at the moment and feel your success!
I love your blog

How exciting! Way to go Miss N! I hope Sahara will get more out of (or should I say in to) toilet training than just reading books ...
