Charlotte just started using the potty so I let the daycare know and now they’ll ask her during the day and she actually tries at the daycare too. Plus I learned from Charlotte’s teachers that kids are more likely to use the potty if they see their friends do it. So, potty peer pressure is a real thing and it
And now it’s time for an awesome Thanksgiving themed dad joke!
