Potty training

My son is two and keeps grabbing himself like he has to or had peed. He ask to sit on the potty but he just wants to put a wad of toilet paper in the toilet. I don't want to tell him he can't sit on the potty but he is sitting for the wrong reason. so do I let him sit anyhow?

Getting hit in gymnastics

I just put my 2 year old son in gymnastics two weeks ago. They have toys they can play with before/after their class. An other boy was playing with a truck and my son walked up next to him and the boy slapped him in the face. His mother said sorry, he has trouble sharing.

Nap time messing with bedtime.

My two yr old has recently started taking his naps at 1pm instead of 11:30am (he wakes up between 6 and 7). With a 1p nap it has him sleeping until 3-4p and bed time is at 8:30. My husband tries getting as much energy out between then but he is still not tired. Bed time can't be moved back because I'm at work and my husband works early. Any suggestions on getting in bed on time.

Christmas present

I told my husband I wanted storage totes and a day to clean the house for Christmas. He just looked at me like it was a trick. We have a 2 yr old and I just want a clean house!!!! Instead of piles. Am I the only one?

terrible twos

Five meltdown, 2 time outs, and everything is no no no all before noon. Terrible twos are at my house. Thank goodness for naps!

Poll about co-sleeping

What would you rather have... A. Your LO wake up in the middle of the night and come sleep in your bed. But they sleep until 8am B. Sleeps in their own bed through out night but wake up 6am.

Birthday party crazy!

I'm a little crazy about planning my son birthday party. Last year was his 1st birthday and I started planning in mid August and his party was mid October. This year I'm already starting to think of a theme. Anyone else start planning way toooo early? I like making most of the decorations myself and not have to rush.

My son thinks he is the sun

My 20month old hasn't be sleeping good at all. He will fight going to sleep until 10p and then he is back up around 5:30/6am. He naps around 11a-1pm. I dont understand why he is doing this. He is getting teeth but we give him medicine before bed. Any ideas or suggestions?

Does anyone else get the "do you like being a mom" question? Its normally people I haven't seen since I had a kid but it's just weird. I just want to be like no its horrible you want him? Just to see there reaction.
