Then about a month ago I realized that I was putting more pressure on him...

Believe it or not, that was really easy for Nate... he hated being wet and was so stressed about it he trained himself by 2. Joey is another story. (OK, I may be in denial about his temperment.) I just found my old copy of Toilet Training in Less than a Day. I think it is an antique. It was horrible. Certainly not GD. Joey hates baths, loves...

Wow. I just got a chance to pour a glass of wine and read through this thread.

I feel the pain of wasted time and broken hearts - hers and mine. I know her spirit has been crushed uncountable times in her short life. I feel insane. I feel like a small child in her clutches. I never realized that a wee...
I know! It seems like every time we go, the price is higher!
We just have three. They would all go to my parents, who are awesome.
Ahhhh. I could have written your post! I don't much time to answer right now, but I'll come back to this thread. My dd is 3.3 yrs and is the biggest challenge of my life!
