Help! How do you deal with dropped naps?!?

My son is turning 2.5 this weekend. Yesterday, he finally learned he can get out of his crib and cut out napping entirely all in one day. Day 2 and we're down the same path. I'm a sahm and really need that time to myself to recharge. How do you deal with naps being dropped entirely and transitioning to a toddler bed all in one shot? The way our door handles, are my only real option w... More

Tired of cleaning up pee!

My son has been potty trained for 3 months. Fortunately it was a very easy process, but the last 3 days he's been refusing to push his penis down and is peeing all over the seat, floor, and side of the bathtub. He refuses to pee while I'm in the room and demands privacy. Ok, cool. Normally not an issue, but now the second I cross the threshold I can hear it hitting the tile floor! ... More

Dealing with the "terrible twos"

My son recently turned 2, though the tantrums started a few months ago. This week, however, the sh*t has hit the fan!

The real crux has been during nap/bedtime. We&... More

Feeling like I'm not doing enough...

My son is going to be 2 in just over a month. I'm a sahm and feel like I'm not doing enough to teach him everything he needs to know. He really started talking over the last two months, and I know every child is different, but I feel like we go over the same things every day and it's just not clicking. I'm by no means an educator and don't know where to start. I've r... More

Playing in his pee...

I'm starting to potty train my 21 month old son. We are using a toilet insert on a regular toilet and he has no problem going pee, but every time he goes he sticks his hands in his pee stream. I've tried telling him no, holding his hands to the side. Yes, it's sterile in and of itself, but he then touches his face or tries putting his fingers in his mouth. Gross! Any suggestio... More
