Number One. The washing machine dies three days into the potty training process, rather than in time to let you know not to think about it this week.
Number Two. A week into the potty training process, you begin to suspect that your kid wasn’t ready yet. He however has fallen in love with his “big boy pants” and won’t contemplate going back to nappies. Unfortunately he also won’t contemplate pooing in the potty.
There may be a long few weeks ahead.
