Recently I was reading on my friend Krista's blog http://www.playdatecrashers.com/ a little debate among moms. When is your child old enough to use a public restroom by his/herself? There was also talk about genders and age-appropriateness, but we can talk about that at a later date. My question is, when DO you know if your kiddo is old enough? Obviously all kids are different, and each situation unique. I am also convinced I have seen the inside of every.single.public.restroom in Frankfort, and lots more on our well traveled routes. This is surely an integral part of successful potty training, and Ryley has done tremendously well. Part of that success is Mommy's willingness to stop whatever whenever and take her to the restroom. Two year olds cannot hold it for long.
