It’s been a few weeks now that Joshua has been telling us when he needs to have a wee or a poo and he hates having a dirty nappy on so we tried him with a potty but he just wasn’t having any of it. He wouldn’t even entertain the idea and after an afternoon of being nappy-free, he cried until I had put him back in a nappy so that he could have a wee. He’s got great holding skills! But it was pretty clear that potty training wasn’t going to happen for us because Joshua just did not want to sit on the potty without a nappy on.
When we was offered the opportunity to review Toilet Train Bing I jumped to it, I knew that this would be perfect to help Joshua get on the potty and realise that it was okay to sit on the potty to have a wee on.
I realise that I’ve been away from my blog for some time, in fact blogging has been the very last thing on my mind and it’s something that I have missed, so very much.
There has been so much happening that I lost focus on all the hard work I had put into my blog and it has certainly been neglected. Although I’d prefer not to get into the details about my unexpected absence, I feel like deserved some explanation. After all, you are all a huge part of my life.
Ever since weaning age, Keira has always proved herself to be challenging when it comes to food but I wasn’t aware just how much of a fussy eater she was going to be. From around 11 months old she had already made me aware of what she liked and disliked, or maybe it was just what she wanted to eat and what she didn’t.
I have always been able to count on one hand the foods that she will eat, yep there really isn’t many, and it has been such a stress getting her to eat something new or something that she “didn’t like”. Meal times have been so stressful and most of the time they end up in tears from us both. I never thought that trying to get your child to eat could be so draining, mentally and physically.
When BeatBo first came on the scene I knew that my kids would love them. Joshua was always playing with the BeatBo at his cousin’s house when we went to visit so I knew I had to get him one of his own. I’m glad I didn’t because it’s one of the toys that gets played with day-in-day-out, and his tunes are pretty funky! So when I was asked if we wanted to test and review a few toys from the BeatBo range, there was no way I was going to turn that down.
