Naked Potty Training--Day 5

Things are going pretty well over here.  As good as it can be potty training 2.5 year old twins.  We've been out and about since Day 2 and the travel potties go everywhere we go.  W2 has peed in the middle of a lawn, on a basketball court, on a gravel path, on a sidewalk, and in front of our building.  I *could* start letting him

It's almost like going to Touch a Truck every single day.
