Whitney means "from the White Island". I'm not sure exactly what that means as "the White Island" can be referring to several places including the Philippines and Antarctica. Hmmm…I may need to read about this a little more. #calligraphynameoftheday Tag a friend named Whitney! βœ’οΈ

He hates it when I bust out the camera, but when the light is this good, I'm gonna snap the pic anyway. I still love you, Felix friend! It's been a rough month with Mr. #felimonster. No closer to potty training (will someone please come live with us for a few weeks and do it for me?!?!), fights, screams and destruction. I've been more aggressive about less screen time around here, so I wonder if it's a detox thing. I hope that the Prime Minister of Turdmenistan will, at some point, resign from his post. It'll get easier, right? Right? #momlife

meggiedeehandmade : I've potty trained 4 boys. They are all different. They all do it when they are ready, some sooner than others obviously! My advice, if your going to go for it, go all the way, really commit. Otherwise they catch on. I had to take diapers off at night for the last boy to really get it, even pull ups. Sure we had some messes but not a lot. Also very important: don't let him see you frustrated. Reward the good, ignore the bad, have him help clean up messes. Lots of fluids to encourage opportunities to go. Make it the new normal. You can do it!
carrieinstitches : Good luck. 4 is rough. Screens of any kind do not do good things for my son and I had to go cold turkey no screens to see a big difference. The first 2 days were a bit rough but after that he behavior improved sooooooo much. I think TV and screens just mess with some kiddos more than others. Good luck!!!😊😊
tangledpen : I agree with all who said 'just give it time - his time' Maybe it sounds impossible to wait until he's ready, but it will be easier on everyone involved. Our first took much longer than our second (both boys). The second just decided one day he doesn't need the diaper anymore and that was that. It can happen! Hugs to all and good potty vibes πŸ˜‰
lindseydenning : After moving states and a vacation and a renovation we had to do a major detox from screen time and let me tell you it wasn't pretty.
lindseydenning : Also I really like your floors. And, if you find someone to come do potty training for you, invite me over!!! We're about to start try 3 soon.
jess.cirque.uh : "Prime Minister of Turdmenistan" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
0amylouise0 : I've not trained a single one of my eight kids. They do it when they're ready. They've ranged in age of 17 months to 3 years. Some stopped for awhile and then started over. They really just want to be in charge of their own butt. Or perhaps I'm just lazy and this is total wrong advice 😝
girlfridaydoes : A friend's son struggled with not knowing he had to go... Lack of sensation, I guess. Their pediatrician discovered that he was actually too constipated, so he never had any other sensation besides feeling "full". She had him take a little bit of gentle lax every day, and suddenly he was able to tell. Funny how sometimes it can be something totally different causing the issue.

The name Heather means flower or bush. The flower's symbolism is incredibly rich, though. Depending upon the color, it can mean anything from solitude and protection (white), admiration and beauty (purple) to good luck (pink). Super rad. Tag a friend named Heather! βœ’οΈ #calligraphynameoftheday

I posted this a bit ago, but haven't shared here yet: demystifying baby food. On the blog I talk about why I love making baby food for my littles. #linkinprofile #selfproclaimedfoodie
selfproclaimedfoodie - linkinprofile -
casensitivecalligraphy : Good for you! Real food is best for all of us!
fairyhomesandgardens : Oh for sure toddlers get pickier! My twins are way pickier now than they ever were back then. But my one year is a lot pickier than they were at that age and I feel like a lot of that is exposure to textures in homemade baby food vs. store bought.
alicedang : Omg your baby food looks delicious!
