Now that Kiana is over two years old, it is time to begin potty training, or Toilet Learning (as my uber politically-correct, Positive Parenting Gurus refer to it).
Under normal circumstances, I believe in complete honesty: I tell you everything that goes on throughout the day, the good and bad. If one of your kids uses bad language, or if one exhibits a great kindness to another, you hear about it. But I will never tell you this.
As I sit here, watching my 10-month-old trying to feed himself dinner, I realize that being a mother and a clean freak do not mix. Before my son, everything had a place and everything was in its place -- so to speak. Not anymore.
When it comes to targeting toddlers in advertisements, Madison Avenue doesn't come close to tapping into the needs and desires of the tot demographic. Until now.
I swear I didn't force my kid to have a potty mouth. Here's the proof.
