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. Last summer we did the three day method, and packed away daytime diapers to begin potty training. But it doesn’t mean he does it all on his own and never has accidents, it just means I’ve changed the way I am managing his pee and poop from diapers to the potty.
Here are my favourite low-key activities to do with your kids when you are stuck inside or need some down time due to chronic illness.
If you ask my toddler what his favourite things are he will answer Hockey and Paw Patrol. He embraces both of these with the joy and abandon that toddlers are known for. But I don’t just want him to wear Calgary Flames pajamas and sleep on Paw Patrol bed sheets, I want him to truly connect with the things he loves on more than just a merchandising level. This means diving deeper into the subjects and building on them.
