We have that potty! My brother brought round their surplus once their kids were done and one of them is the musical one. She's seen the other ones kicking about, but that one has been hidden and will be revealed tomorrow. Did I mention it's our 6th wedding anniversary tomorrow? We know how to celebrate :lol:

As long as Biggie has a system :)) How do you think he'll be? And how old does that make Tupac now?!

I think we're also in line for paying just to postpone the finality of the decision. I can get right up to the edge of it, but never over the line. I 100% do not want another baby, but I can't actively decide to remove all possibility. They must make a fortune out of "complete" families!

They must! We absolutely ABSOLUTELY definitely do not want any further family extension :lol: but it’s really weird because when you throw in some horrible imaginary unthinkable scenarios it makes you overthink everything and 🤷🏼‍♀️

Tupac is 4, he is 5 in August so he is the youngest in his school year (but weirdly he is the tallest in his class despite being the youngest) .

I reckon Biggie is really ready for it too, he is also enormous and a massive chatterbox too, at nursery they always say that they forget he’s the youngest (27 Aug) because he is quite a lot louder/chatty than the rest of his contemporaries. Also he is dead shouty and does some brilliant evil eye so I just feel judged always :lol:

He hasn’t had his hair cut ever yet though :lol: his hair has grown so much slower than Tupac. He has got loads of hair now but it’s dead curly so less obvious how long it is, and Tupac had the same (curly initially) but his is dead straight now.

Good luck with the potty training, Leap, and I will just copy whatever you do. ;) Nursery have been saying Topsy has been ready for months, and they're probably right, but I have not been ready to bother during the winter. I'm thinking it will be much easier in the summer, with fewer layers to wash etc.

I thought I'd feel totally done during this pregnancy but it's not the case yet. P is definitely, definitely done though. And I'm sure I will be once the newborn whirlwind actually hits. :lol:

Well, didn’t P feel similar before and yet look where you are now :))

I can tentatively report that she absolutely smashed the first day, so if anything I’m feeling quite glad we waited till now rather than fighting the various battles the author has outlined in the troubleshooting guides. This isn’t *oh my god what is that word for boorish self belief*, I’m sure we have loads of ups and downs ahead, I just mean a lot of the challenges outlined are definitely for kids who are younger and therefore less verbal, aware of their bodies blah blah. The whole aim of the first stage is to eventually get her to the stage where she can pee on the potty/loo even if you have to whisk her there mid-stream, and this morning Hop just sat on the loo and said “I feel it!” and then peed :lol:

We had one accident in the garden but the rest of the day she would just suddenly stop playing, sit on the potty and pee when she needed to. It helped to know her bowel schedule as she needed a bit more cheerleading for that, but that was a success in the end too. Anything after this point is clearly going to be a will issue rather than skill, so it’s good to have knowledge of that banked for when she starts to push back.

If it wasn’t for Skip and my terrible memory I’d probably be popping the book in the post for you once we feel like we’re done, but that probably doesn’t meet your timeline anyway. I do think it’s a good resource and I like having something like that to guide me and then refer back to, so if you see it kicking about I’d say it’s worth the look.

Thanks, will definitely give it a read!

Sounds like she's doing really brilliantly, and has definitely got the understanding for it. I hope it continues to go very smoothly.
