Thanks to all the readers who emailed me asking if I was okay as I hadn’t posted in some time. I didn’t actually realise it had been that long! Sorry that I haven’t replied personally to you all.
Since I last posted, we have been busy doing a massive ‘winter clean’ of our home. A huge declutter, cleaning places that go untouched, moving furniture around to have a change etc. So that has pretty much taken up a lot of our time. I have also been very busy with a couple of things which have been taking up a lot of my time and are quite urgent. Hubby has also been off work.
Nothing spectacular Im afraid. Except that Z has finally got the hang of potty training mashaAllah! We persisted and oh my gosh were there tears from him and me – but one day a few days ago he said “Ummi, I need to…” and pointed down below! Couldnt believe it. And so for the past almost 2 weeks all poo poos have been in the toilet and last few days a lot of wee wees have also gone in lol.
Anyone who know how frustrated I was about his potty training will know how happy I am. R was potty trained before she was 2 mashaAllah and I guess I didnt realise how different boys were in learning how to do things. But he got there in the end alhamdulillah. At least now I know he’s normal and won’t be as stressed when it comes to potty training Y. Z has also calmed down a lot mashaAllah and is speaking a lot more clearly and we actually have conversations and not just his demands. He has started to ask me ‘why’ lol
Anyway, back to normal next week inshaAllah and I’ll still be sticking to the reduced timetable for R so that she has more time and freedom to explore her interests and learn more organically.
