Time to start dropping subtle hints and clues as to the big changes coming. Making in their diaper is all...
As parents, it is easy for us to observe our child’s habits and to recognize certain signs. This is especially true when they have to go to the bathroom. My son used to hate interrupting his activities just to go. So he would wiggle and squirm in desperate attempts to hold it in. No matter how many times I’d ask him if he had to go, he’d flat out deny it until he went dashing to the bathroom and sprayed pee all over the seat. Eventually, I had to take control and make him stop what he was doing so he wouldn’t hold it in.

My wife and I recently returned from a long vacation with our two young children. I use the word “vacation” lightly, though. As any parent knows, traveling with a child of any age can be tiring and stressful and yet, relaxing at the same time (usually when the kids are asleep). Vacations and travel also present challenges for potty training. There are new and exciting things to see and do, bathrooms are not always nearby (if we even know where one is), and normal routines get thrown out the window. Thankfully, my almost 5-year-old daughter made it through our 10-day trip without an accident, but there were some close moments.
