A while back a certain member of our house hold (who shall remain nameless) unknowing bought the really, really, really, really cheap toilet paper. You know the kind they place in gas station restrooms and look almost transparent? Let me just tell you in a house with 3 small kids cheap toilet paper doesn't fly. We made the deal that day to add toilet paper to the list of things we don't try to save major money on. (however if you like saving money Cottonelle has $1.50 coupon)

You know whose toilet paper isn't thin? Cottonelle...seriously this stuff it thick. They also make flush-able wipes...which is really handy when it comes to kids and all things restroom related. Speaking of kids and bathroom duties...can I tell you how much I loathe potty training? I mean seriously with my two oldest I thought potty training them was going to be the end of me. I was always in shock, and majorly jealous, when I heard about those kids who were potty trained at 18 months or something crazy like that. You name it, I have tried it in order to kick off the potty training...a potty party, watching potty movies, bribing with candy. However, my personal experience has been they will go when they are ready. My goal was always to never have two in diapers. With baby #4 coming in September, I need to start laying down the law with Lyla. I am dreading it. She seems real happy to sit on the potty (which is more than I can say for Jude, who screamed)  She is overjoyed to grab her flush-able wipe and even "pretend" to go to the bathroom...so we will take it one day at a time.

While I am talking about bums and toilets...can I also say that when Jude gets older he will be the official toilet cleaner. I for the life of me I can't understand how little boys manage to miss so badly when using the using the restroom, at least the one in my house does. Note: flush-able wipes are also great for cleaning toilets. 

This is the first time I have purchased flush-able wipes.  Personally, this pregnant lady likes the way the wipes smell...which says a lot because these days I strongly dislike the way 90% of things smell. They are also: flush-able, break up after flushing, sewer and septic-safe, and alcohol-free.

So have you ever used flush-able wipes? 
How do you handle potty training? (don't hold out on me if you have great tips!)

Thanks Cottonelle for sponsoring this post about bums, potty training (or lack there of), and toilets.

is this a sponsored post?? haha totally kidding.
this post was too funny, i can only say though i hope your husband doesn't read this! even though we don't have kids, toilet paper made cheaply is definitely not worth it! i tried a cheaper brand once and was like forget it! no thank you!
and when i do have my future littles, i'll remember this post and invest in some flushable wipes as well. xo

First off congrats on baby #4 coming, it's a great number! Ok potty training when you have multiple children is crucial to set aside a week or two if you have it where you can stay close to home. Then have the older kids in on the training by telling them that every time the younger sibling goes to the bathroom on the toilet they will be rewarded too. I usually let, the trainee give the trainer one m&m each whenever they went. The being potty trained usually always looks up to and wants to make happy the older sibling and the older sibling just likes the candy ;) worked for me every time.
