Potty Training Essentials

My little girl turns 2 next week and despite her showing signs since 18 months old, we still haven’t fully started potty training. They say not to force it and to let them do it when they’re ready so that’s what we’re going to do. Alyssia can tell me when she’s done a wee and will often help herself to a pull up from the cupboard but she still doesn’t know when she is going to do one. I’m sure…

I have started my christmas shopping finally (I am definitely starting earlier next year – note to self) however I have been doing the majority of it online. If you know me, you’ll know I suffer with anxiety and hitting the shops is not my kind of fun infact I would much rather stay in bed with a hot chocolate and order from the comfort of my own home.
