We’ve all been there, especially if have children! You flush one wet wipe down the toilet and think what’s the harm? Before you know it you’re regularly flushing them down the loo.

The Meeting Room aka The Toilet!

A few days ago I wandered into our bathroom to do my business, as you do, and before I’d even had a chance to sit down I was joined by not one, but both of my daughters! I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t get it. I mean when I’m in our living room with them, they can happily sit and play with one another without so much as a glance towards me to check if I’m still in the room, but for whatever reason, whenever I enter the toilet, it’s almost as though the girls and I have… [Read More]

I was recently sent a professional face and body hair trimmer to review from ToiletTree Products. Like many women I get fine hairs on the tops of my thighs and stomach.

Potty Training Twins

Potty training twins? Where do I start?! That’s what I thought when the idea first popped into my head! I didn’t worry too much about it though and decided to take it all in my stride. One thing I knew for definite was that I wanted to wait until our girls were at least two years old. I’d heard that before this age children don’t have the ability to control their bowels. Plus if you start when your child is too young or if they aren’t ready it can end up being more stressful for you both and can take… [Read More]

Dry Like Me Potty Training Pads Review

How do you even begin to start potty training twins? This was something I’d asked myself on numerous occasions. I already knew that I wanted to wait until our girls were two years old. I remember that starting before this age wasn’t a good idea because children don’t tend to have control of their bladders until at least two years of age. I knew that I would be patient and I knew that I wouldn’t rush our girls. I’d let them tell me when they were ready. In the back of my mind I’d had it in my head to… [Read More]

Potty training twins

When our twins turned two years old I started thinking about when would be the right time to potty train them. Both of our girls had shown signs of being ready before they turned two, but I wanted to wait until they were at least two for a number of reasons. The first reason is that I wanted them to have a better understanding of potty training and secondly I’ve heard that if you start too early it can take longer to potty train successfully. R and M have watched me and their daddy on the toilet pretty much since… [Read More]

Potty Training

For a number of months now I have been thinking about potty training and when we should start. I’ve read numerous things on different parenting websites and on social media, but in truth I don’t know where to begin.   The only thing I do know is that I want to wait as long as possible. I want to wait until our girls have passed their second birthday which is in February. One of the things I have heard over and over again is that if you start too soon, when you’re children are too young or when they’re simply… [Read More]
