We did our civic duty today and took the kids to vote with us. They were very excited to put the ballot into the slot and were fascinated by the camera crews. But now…on to a mess of a different sort… toilet training.
We’re still dealing with nighttime bed wetting with one of the kids, so that has been an inspiration of sorts for my next book. I’ve put together a book proposal for a toilet training book, and the working title is “Parents Know Poop: 100 Toilet Training Tips.”
I’m really excited about this one, and tomorrow night I get to pitch my idea at a MediaBistro event. I’m a finalist in a book pitch contest. So tomorrow night, in front of a distinguished panel of publishing execs, I’ll get to use some of the very words I’m trying to erase from the kids’ vocabulary.
Wish me luck! Oh, and leave a comment here with your best toilet training tips, tricks and tribulations. If you’ve got a really good one, I’ll add it to my proposal.
