Happy New Year everyone! It is a great thing indeed to be able to see the ending of one year and beginning of a new one; another opportunity to be happy, lively freely, and enjoy life!
I for one tend to shy away from the “new year, new me” mentality because I don’t strive to CHANGE myself, but who doesn’t want to improve? I don’t necessarily wait for the new year to arrive to decide to implement these changes, but it feels pretty natural to want to reset at the dawning of something new right?
Any who, I’ve been writing on Squally Muffin for a little over a year now and I just want to recap on some things that worked, didn’t work, changed, stayed the same, and things of the like for the Squally Squad!
So when we first started this blogging journey, we started trying to potty train Lariah at a little over a year old. Hahaha. Now, while I don’t think it would’ve been impossible if we were willing to spend half of our lives in the bathroom and on the toilet, we just decided that it wasn’t worth the struggle and that we’d wait for her to show more definite signs of potty training interest! Now at 26 months, Muffin does love to flush the toilet, but still takes sitting on it as a joke unless she’s constipated and reallyyyy trying to push out a big one! So we’re not going to press the issue with potty training again until she seems more interested and open to the idea. Why? Because forcing potty training isn’t something that we HAVE to do in our household. Riah is watched at home, so there’s no day care to appease. She’s in cloth diapers, so it shouldn’t cost us any extra to continue cloth diapering (I say shouldn’t because I have a nasty cloth diaper shopping habit I’m working on hahahaha), and despite popular belief, its perfectly normal to not be potty trained yet at the age of 2! I honestly won’t truly be concerned about potty training until she’s closer to 3. Maybe later. Everyone has their own opinion and that’s just mine.
