    Potty training or not?!?!?

    Hm..this is a mistery still for me. Is my daughter ready?Am i ready? I don’t think i am ready to let go to my baby daughter yet.

We have a few potties around the house but she’s treating them like toys at the moment. She puts toys in one of them and carries them around…it is funny you know….But i am worried at the same time. She is almost 27 months now and until now she only sat on a potty…
