Child Labor and Potty Training

I am all about having Alessandra helping me clean up.  
Especially when she helped in making the mess.

For the most part, she enjoys it.

I said, for the most part.  :o)

But if it keeps her busy and gives me a minute to get something else done and in the process she's helping me even the tiniest bit.  Then I encourage her to help.  If I'm breaking any Child Labor laws then I guess you'll just have to call the authorities, and turn me in.

Because clearly I'm guilty.

Now onto another topic,one that I've been hesitant to talk about.

And that's potty training.

Mostly because I'm afraid to jinx it, but here goes.

Alessandra is pretty much potty trained.  I'm not exactly sure when one is considered potty trained but she's been out of diapers and in panties or pull ups for quite some time.  Yes, she still has accidents but for the most part she goes pee and poop in the potty.  She is a bit obsessed with the potty right now so everything, and I mean everything has to go potty.  So far, knock on wood, nothing has actually fallen in the potty but I do believe Alessandra will have all of her dollies and stuffed animals 
potty trained by the end of the month.



  1. Oh my goodness, Danny LOVES cleaning!! :-D more if only I could get him to do it effectively... Any pointers? :)

    1. Unfortunately no. Like I said if it helps me even the tiniest bit and that's about how much help she is to me right now, but hey it's something. :o)
