Sorry haven't read all the post yet, just randomly going through them.
Sorry I know someone asked about toilet training tips...
Because of the age, I would suggest having a signal/sign. Mary hits her right leg when she wants to use the toilet. I am not brave enough yet to leave nappies off, I find she will do poo's in the toilet, but will rather play. I try to make the toilet fun, by singing with her, or she will flick through an old Take 5 or thats life magazine. Mary loves to find, Babies, Mummy's, Daddy's dogs, hats, shoes, and clocks.
Also, I have been having problems with getting the nappy back on, (pull ups are easier). So now I have been randomly adding 10cents or so to the toilet money. No it's not bribery because I have only done it a couple of times, she hasn't known about the money until later. ( you were so good at getting your nappy on, )
Went out to lunch with a friend and her two year old yesterday (Mary too). both the kids were getting loud at one stage, I asked Mary if she wanted a sleep, said yes so I gave her the dummy, was out like a light. MF (Mary's Friend) was still being vocal. It really was not that bad, but my friend said we were getting death stares from the three ladies sitting at a nearby table. ...
SO.... one lady left, leaving behind a lot of food, the other two got up to pay, The owner said something about are you only paying for two meals, and is something wrong with the food They said no she wasn't feeling well. The food they left looked really nice, one had left an omelet hardly touched, and the another was a plate with a really nice salad, you now really red tomatoes, fresh lettuce.
When we went up to pay we told the owner, that we think they left of our account. She told us not to worry about it, that she has kids, so she knows what's it's like, we need to eat, and we were welcome anytime. What a lovely lady.
So Saturday is the Baby Sprinkle (shower) have at least 14 coming, still waiting on a lot to get back to us.
