Potty Training

Ok, we've been "officially" potty train Jack for a full week now. He's in undies all day long, except for nap time and bedtime. He's yet to poop in the potty, only pee so far.

Jack was a shit at the doctors today.

He was perfectly fine in the waiting area with all of the toys, but when it came time for the check up, he was having none of it. We could hardly weigh and measure him; he didn't want the doctor near him. He was completely non-compliant and wouldn't talk to the doctor, wouldn't look at… Continue reading Jack was a shit at the doctors today.
