A few days ago as I was working on my computer, I noticed that my toddler had suddenly gone quiet… hardly ever a good sign. I quickly looked up and around just in time to see him walking out of the bathroom. He had the biggest and cutest grin on his face. He was proud! In just seconds he had attempted to go potty on his own. Pants and Pullups still around his ankles, he came waddling towards me. What I didn’t immediately notice was the lump of poop attached to his foot, the one that he was dragging through the house. I stood up to go toward him and help him with his attempt, almost stepping in the “chocolate” footprints he was making on his way. The mess was epic. It was not the first “sh%&astrophe” (as my best friend jokingly refers to these accidents) that we encountered and it certainly won’t be the last.

I must admit, I was quite naive as we embarked on this potty training journey. I thought I would have it down in record time, because of course I’m an awesome Mama and my child is super smart. Those two facts are still true, but definitely weren’t enough to make potty training the simple task I thought it was going to be. Over the last 3 months I have learned the following truths that I want to share with moms who are potty training or getting ready to start:

  • Your other mommy friends weren't exaggerating when they warned you that potty training is a roller coaster. Your toddler will poop in the potty 100% for a whole week! The next week you might wonder if you imagined it all because little one acts like has never seen or heard of this thing called a potty.
