the same sex as the child if possible? It wasn't something I really pondered before until I asked DH to stop by Target so we can pick up so real underwear for DD. I've decided it is time to try the underwear route instead of the pull ups full time for the days she is home. I have three weeks until I go back to work and she begins daycare full time again so I might as well try. She's not to happy she ended up with Princesses on them instead of Dora but all the stores around here are literally sold out of Dora, should have bought them when we saw them.
Any way, back to my point.....DH made the comment that we don't need the underwear and I said: "Well if you were potty training her you would try every trick in the book." His comment: "She's a girl so why the hell would I be potty training her? Now if she was a boy it would be different."
Now yes there are those exceptions to the rule but so far, in my circle of family and friends off line, I've noticed that Mommy trains the daughter and daddy trains the son.....wow....the things that fly by without you even noticing they do.
