Potty Training Woes

Life of a Mom

THE. WORST. EVER. That about sums it up.  Potty training is the worst.  In my mind it was going to be easier this time around.  I’ve gone through it with one kid already.  I should be prepared the second time around. LIES. The second time around is just as annoying.  My oldest son was not […]
