Potty Training

Though I haven't started yet with the little one, someone sent me this joke that I thought was cute, enjoy!

THE POTTY

A LITTLE THREE YEAR OLD BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET. HIS MOTHER
THINKS HE HAS BEEN IN THERE TOO LONG, SO SHE GOES IN TO SEE WHAT'S UP.

THE LITTLE BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET READING A BOOK. BUT ABOUT EVERY 10 SECONDS OR SO HE PUTS THE BOOK DOWN, GRIPS ONTO TO THE TOILET SEAT WITH HIS LEFT HAND AND HITS HIMSELF ON TOP OF THE HEAD WITH HIS RIGHT HAND.

HIS MOTHER SAYS: "BILLY, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? YOU'VE BEEN IN HERE FOR A WHILE.

BILLY SAYS: "I'M FINE, MOMMY.. I JUST HAVEN'T GONE 'DOODY' YET."

MOTHER SAYS: "OK, YOU CAN STAY HERE A FEW MORE MINUTES. BUT
BILLY, WHY ARE YOU HITTING YOURSELF ON THE HEAD?"


BILLY SAYS: "WORKS FOR KETCHUP."

Snacks for your toddlers

Looking for snack ideas for your on the move toddler, I have used some of the following. Remember to never give your toddler anything small/hard/slippery to eat. Always make sure foods/snacks are cut up to the appropriate size for your little one.

1. Low fat string cheese. We buy ours at Sam's Club. I think they are about $7 for a family size package (48 pieces), compared to paying $3 or more for 12 ounces in a store.

2. Grapes. My little one loves grapes. I cut them up into quarters for her. Takes a bit of time but since she loves them I'm willing to do it. Never give your toddler a whole grape, they can choke on them if not chewed properly.

3. Bananas. I have also gotten the small baby bananas as well. She loves them either way.

4. Yogurt is great to keep on hand.

5. Crackers with cheese or peanut butter.

6. Watermelon, strawberries or cantaloupe. Again, I cut these up into bite size pieces for her.

7. Cereal, yes cereal. Easy to grab a handful of cheerios or rice crispies for her to munch on.

Mini hotdogs

Wow are these awesome!!! We picked up some of the Nathan mini bagel hotdogs at Sam's Club last week. These are perfect for my little one. I cut them up even more for her and they are the perfect size to pick up in her little fingers. I don't remember the cost of them, but they are inexpensive for the amount that you get. They have a yummy flavor and they are microwavable. If my little one knew the "two thumbs up" sign I'm sure she would give it.

Perfect on a hot humid day instead of turning on the stove or the oven. Just added some grapes and juice with it and she was all set.

Afternoon Naps

I will so miss the afternoon naps when she decides that she just doesn't want to do it anymore. I keep hearing stories from other moms, whose children, are about the same age my little one is, and they no longer nap. Mine is still pretty good about it, she knows that after Barney it is time for her nap.

What do I get to do? There are days where I might nap (few and far between) but on most days, like today, I'm doing laundry, hanging up towels (how can a family go through so many towels?), dishes, and picking up the disaster that is the living room. Just so when the little one gets up from the nap she can destroy the place again.
