How I failed in potty training

How I failed in potty training.
As much as I wanted to be a perfect mother and master the art of perfect parenting. I’ve failed so many times that I lost my count. And, actually, even if I think I didn’t fail, I probably failed anyway.

Here it comes. I’m going to tell you a story about one of the thousands things I did wrong.

How I totally failed in potty training.

The trick is that I was absolutely sure I was doing just fine. Not even fine, perfect. I would say brilliant.
As many other post Soviet mothers, I decided to take everything under my full control. As my mom did and her mom did, I started potty training the day my son learned to sit.
I couldn’t be happier.

Potty training books, special character underwear, even cartoons! And the most desperate way just to let them be pant-less and pee whenever they want…
