I often take pride in the things my children know how to do. Not because I think they are genius babies, but because I think I have awesome parenting skills. I am a total narcissist. However, my children have been teaching me (slowly) that individual personality often plays a much bigger role than my fabulous parenting skills.
I started potty training both of my children in January. My nearly 4 year old daughter is still wearing a diaper. My two year old is completely potty trained. He doesn't even pee in his diaper at night. Although I would like to take credit for his mad potty skillz, I cannot. He just decided that he wanted to wear underwear one day, and he has never looked back. He actually cries when I make him wear a diaper during bedtime. I am baffled, because I have no idea how to potty train my wayward daughter. The girl loves sitting in her own waste.
At this rate, my daughter is going to be shitting in her pants FOREVER. And I certainly don't take any pride in that.
