Confessions of a Potty Training Failure (& Giveaway)

Disclosure: I am doing this review in exchange for a one-year subscription of the KidloLand Nursery Rhymes App. I love being honest about all my reviews so all opinions really are my own!

And So It Begins….

Ginny on her potty last night. Not long after the new year started, I began contemplating when I would start to potty train my toddler, Ginny. Her second birthday was coming up. Logically, that meant it would soon be time to stop using diapers with her. In an effort to start the process, I bought her a potty and placed it in her bathroom.
