For now our daily routine is well established and regular. Jack's doing great napping and sleeping, and is eating pretty well. He continues to adore trains and monkeys and is currently in love with the Winnie the Pooh stories.
During this calm center in the midst of Jack's toddler storm, we are about to shake things up in a big way. It's time for potty training.
Jack's been communicating a strong interest, so armed with many new underpants and a timer, we're going to give it a go.
The longer I am a mom, the more I believe that parenthood is one giant impermanence lesson. Jack changes so fast -- every day he is growing and learning and becoming more himself. I hope he will keep growing each day of his life. Potty training is one of the challenges that mark a transition from baby to childhood. It's happy and sad at the same time. For now.
