This is a question for all mummy bloggers out there.
There are three things people often ask me and my response is always the same: “I’ll do it when S starts speaking and can understand me better and respond to me”.
1. When and how I will wean him off his pacifier – I intend to explain to him that he’s a big boy and the paci fairy is coming to take his paci’s away and leave him with a toy that he wants. Obviously this will all be done in elaborate style with a lot of drama so he feels very special 😉
2. Potty training him – I’m in no rush to do this, he’s not even 2yrs old yet but I think it’ll be easier when he can speak and tell me in words that he needs to go.
3. Getting him to go to sleep on his own and not be patted to sleep – Again, I believe when he can speak and understand me better, I can explain to him that he needs to fall asleep on his own and that I’ll be right outside should he need me, I might even buy him one of those cool night lights that throw glow in the dark stars across the ceiling.
So tell me mama’s….am I kidding myself?! When he has words on his side is he going to tell me exactly why he won’t do all those things?
