    My daughter 2yrs goes to bed at 7:30 falls asleep around 8pm. Then wakes up on average 1-2 times a night then wakes up and gets me up at around 5:30-6am.

    I’m home educating myself if that counts? My wife is a teacher so she is always coming uk with fun learning games. As our daughter is only 2 we play a lot of counting and pairs games. We must be doing something write as she can count to 10 out loud and count objects up to 5!!

    But so far it has just been around the house we have done it. What are your recommendations and tips for potty training whi…[Read more]
