Now that my Littlest is out of diapers, I wanted to share my thoughts on “diaper free by two.” I’ll talk about how I’ve set flexible expectations, and changed my definition of the words “potty trained.” I like to tell people my son isn’t potty trained, but I am.

It’s called Santa’s Toy Bag and basically, you just fill a bag up with toys that your children no longer need and send it off to Santa’s workshop where he and the elves can spruce them up and give them to other children!
So last summer, I signed up for a free trial of Amazon Prime (Canada). It gave me access to special Prime Day deals on a few products that I was interested in, and free two day shipping.
