Have you started potty training your tot yet?  There are lots of ways to go about doing this.  But before you dive right in, be prepared to have A LOT of patience.  I have been down this road twice, and the approaches that worked for my son, were different than the approaches that worked best for my daughter.  One child took longer than the other and one had a much easier time with nights.  With my son, I had a tough time since I was working full time and his daycare didn’t share my philosophy and methods on how to best potty train a child.

To the parents who are about to tackle this big job – this is the blog post for you!

Planting a Garden with Your Tot

Our Radish Cross Front Dress from our Eat Your Veggies Collection.

If you are living on the sunny side of our country, you may be thinking about doing some Spring gardening projects with your tot.  In Northern California, it’s a good time to start planting vegetables like radishes, broccoli, beets, leeks, lettuce and kale.  These are all delicious and healthy veggies to cultivate, eat and enjoy with your family.

Toddlers really enjoy taking part in gardening projects.  I mean, what could be better than being given the OK to play around in the dirt?  What fun it is for a tot to squish the soil in his hands and make new discoveries.  Your toddler can use a little rake for gathering the leaves from the selected area before you start the planting process. It’s good to provide kids with small-sized tools, or adult-sized ones that are lightweight.  Sometimes you can find small watering cans at nurseries or even toy stores.  Make this an easy task for toddlers!
