12 tweets about potty training that will make you feel less alone
Toddlers, for the most part, are wonderful.
You're past the 'baby-baby' stage and have a real little person with their very own personality on your hands - they're walking, talking, learning at a crazy pace and can be fascinating and fun to be around.
Just not when they're toilet-training.
If you can afford one of those scary €100-an-hour nannies who can potty-train a child in two days, more power to you.
If not, you might have forgotten what your house smelt like before there was pee on the floor in most of the rooms.
It's tough out there for potty-training parents, as these tweets demonstrate.
The joy of finding a pair of undies in the diaper bag when you forgot to pack extras...
the horror of discovering them used #pottytraining

At this point, it’s easier to point out where there’s not pee on the carpet #pottytraining

"Do something that scares you every day," I whisper as I leave the house with my potty-training toddler.

Friend: Does parenthood really change you?
Me: I called other people about my kid pooping in the toilet today.
Her: So that's a yes.

You know you are a parent when someone texts you a pic of poop in a potty and your first reaction is "Hurray!!" #pottytraining 💩

We think Taryn sums it up best:
If you're considering potty training my advice is don't.

We're just kidding! There is light at the end of the tunnel, or pee in the potty, if you will.
