Two days in, and I think we're ready to maybe hold off on the night-time potty training for now. We've been diligent (me in the early hours and Jaclyn in the middle of the night) about checking in on Miles periodically, entering his room, lifting him out of bed and setting him, under the groggiest … Continue reading Year 2, Day 312
