I'm sorry it was so rough!
Now that you say that though, seems every time I ever tried to follow advice out of a book, it just did not work out like the book said it would. I think it is the increased pressure - even when the advice is good, the pressure kinda ruins it!
So maybe I will just try to pretend I did not read the e-book and just get my three days to focus on the training and just hanging out. Ds seems so close to getting it to me but I miss so many things like him singing "potty" in the car over and over - dd was jabbering away and I could hardly understand him, but yep he had pooped! That kind of stuff happens a lot!
wish me luck!
