I remember introducing the potty to my DS periodically, but he wasn't out of diapers until 3.5yo.

Maybe my DS is a big eater too I usually find that he'll eat non-stop all day for a week or two, then some days will go by where he is very uninterested in eating. I always figured it was a growth spurt thing...although the spurts must be pretty frequent!
LCB it sounds like you have some resentment Actually, I have a younger sister who's almost 3 yrs younger and then a brother who's 10 yrs younger than me. We loved helping to take care of him but we had our own lives going on and were not expected to take care of him beyond just helping out here and there so maybe the amount of responsibility put on the older siblings makes a big difference. I feel bad for my brother, in some ways, because he basically grew up like...

Thanks for the info, now I have something that I can do about all this, at least!
