Potty Training Fail

Over Thanksgiving weekend, Mr. Cereal and I decided to try to get LeLe potty trained. She was about to be 23months old, so we figured it was time to try. She had been showing signs of readiness and we both had four days in a row off to try the three day method. No suspense […]

Adventures in Potty Training: Part 2

I haven’t written a potty-training post in about a year and a half. Thankfully we have come far enough for me to consider Little Piñata officially potty-trained. (You’d assume so after 1.5 years, right? But, actually this officialness is quite new!) First of all, he did amazing with going #1 on the potty from the get-go. […]


Why I’m Waiting to Potty Train

We kept putting it off because she didn’t show much interest, then we were traveling, jet lag, etc. But starting a new preschool last fall was a great motivator for […]


Potty Trained at 20 Months

I’ve been holding off sharing this, because I didn’t want to jinx it, but since it’s been three months now and I can’t remember the last time she had an accident, I think it’s safe to say that my daughter is potty trained. Woohoo! I bought two cheap potty seats for the bathroom (one that sits […]
