15 months…too soon to start potty training

21uapFX-3IL._SL210_

 

So I noticed that my daughter is now going into the bathroom and standing by the toliet randomly. I was scratching my head like hmmm what is she doing. Is it possible that she is ready to start potty training?? Can that really be the case??

Seems a bit early but I am one of those people who pays attention to signed so I went ahead and purchased two different pottys. One for home and one for travel!!

Always gotta be prepared!!

Parenting with Pinterest

One of the immediate realizations that every mother must experience is that children do not come with a manual.  How does one know how many times to feed them, bathe them or even take them outside.  What is good?  What is bad?  Too much or too little?

I found tons and tons of answers online and more recently Pinterest.

Here are some PINS that I found super helpful.

You can learn alot from social media!  Let me know if you have some Pins that you would love to share!

Saturday Night

Saturday night in mom world…is SOOOOOOOOOO different.  I had to ask myself…I wonder what my mom was doing on Saturday night when I was a baby.  Or its possible that at the time everyone had children so people all hung out together??

Points to ponder…

So then I asked her and she said that she would go out early and in the late hours she was home.  She also noted that she used to try to be so organized that she would have the cereal bowls on the table the night before just to save her the step.

Very interesting!

How Feminism Begat Intensive Mothering

Ideas

Feminism and motherhood have long been cast as feuding sisters, one always attempting to undermine the other. In this calculation, women had to choose between the independence, education and self-expression of the feminist path and the nurture, sacrifice and child-centricity of the family path. The more feminist a woman is, the less appetite, it has been suggested, she will have for mothering.

Ironically, however, the opposite is true.

Women’s rising social and economic power has not squelched their desire to be mothers. Quite the opposite: it has enabled women to mother with ferocity. They research; they seek out best practices; they join a group, form a committee and agitate for their version of feeding/disciplining/sleeping. If you don’t believe me, just visit a breast-feeding support group with former litigators, marketing executives and investment bankers. Reluctant sucklers don’t stand a chance.
