I already enrolled my son to a nursery school and he will start this September. Hubby said that it is imperative that we potty train him as it is embarrassing for him to not be trained by then. He is almost 3.
And he will be 3 by then. Yes he should be potty trained already.
This is where I will admit that I dont know how to do it. This is where I will admit again (for the nth time) that I am the worst mother on earth.
Why did I ever let myself be pregnant you ask? Well I have a mother who is the best mother in the world and shes been taking care of neighbors, cousins and relatives for the longest time and they grow up to be an okay person. I thought that I will have time to stay in Manila and learn from her… or yes … letting her do all the mothering while I look from a distance.
Maybe .. cuz of this wicked plan.. God punished me and he made us went here in the UK earlier than I want to…
Now I am here forced to be a mother of my own… its hard ….
I was able to do breastfeeding which I am most proud of and weaning without glitch. Oh and I wasable to stop him from eating his nails .. were still controlling it but he listens now.. and we'll get there.. one day he will totally stop chewing on his yummy nails.
And I am guilty of my son sleeping in with us and well he is almost 3 and is still not potty trained…
The co sleeping can I just justify that we tried to make him sleep in his own room only to realize that it too cold there and we cant afford to heat 2 rooms in cold weather .. even when my husband is working 2 jobs already.
And with the potty training… I dont know how to make.. I just dont know how to start it.. in Manila I just let him walk around nad wet himself till he learn to use the potty (at least thats my plan then) but I cant do that here cuz .. its cold.
Not that summer is arriving … my excuse of cold weather is.. well no longer valid… i Do really really need to potty train him.
Hubby is starting it… buying all the stuff needed.. pull down nappy, potty and those toilet seat contraptions… but how will I start?????
I dont know how!!!!
I feel really really bad about not being able to .. start it sooner and .. i feel that i am way too late in training him…
This worry me a lot and I am lost .. deep inside of me I wish that God will understand me on why I want to be with my mother while I am learning to be a mother.
… I wish my mother is here now not to potty train my son but as MY mother to tell me things will be okay.
Cuz everytime she says it will be okay it… turns out okay.
Cuz I feel that .. things are not okay =(
