I am potty training my third child right now. There is one tip that has helped me through all three children when taking them to the bathroom in public restrooms. A smart friend and mother of three taught me this valuable little tip years ago and I’ve used it ever since! Read the rest of this entry
The kids and I made glow sidewalk chalk and they LOVE it! It has been such a hit I just had to share our process. If you have time to do this with the little ones in your life this summer, do it! So much fun with very little cost and effort.
