Potty Truce Declared

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – Following several live-fire exercises, parties involved in a heated potty training dispute agreed to a cease-fire. Enforcer Lady M was quoted as saying a senior diplomatic officer advised backing down in a no-win power struggle and resuming debate in one month. The opposition was duly informed that he was still “too Little to use the potty and would continue to wear diapers, like Baby Buster, until he was ready to be Big.” On day one following the truce, opposition leader Captain Q-ster was seen volunteering to use the potty twice.

oh, how I've missed you!

This has me sitting her at 8:41 on a grey, cold, June morning giggling and happy to be awake.

Ah, the potty battle. Yup, it can only be one by the little guys. Once I gave up, Ian finally took off on his own. Learned my lesson, I'm leaving it totally up to Laurel.

Meanwhile, on another battle front, Capt. Opie has declared his desire to remain Little for the rest of his life ...

Jimmy is doing the same thing. We resolved to encourage and praise but not push. Having a legit diaper-wearer around at the same time is a definite drawback, I think.
Don't worry. They'll both figure it out, eventually!

Oooooh, reverse psychology almost. That might just work!

Hang in there. And remember, you don't see kindergardners in nappies, so it will happen.
