Things going on in my personal life have me battling with health-conscious choices; like eating better for you foods, using natural products and overall, live a healthier lifestyle. At Real California Milk, they believe in real food made by real families. All you have to do is simply look for the seal to ensure quality! When you see their seals, you’ll feel good knowing that the product is certified as having been made with 100% Real California Milk from Real California Dairy families.

I’m a big sandwich eater come lunch time, which makes coming up with something new and tasty an absolute must to satisfy these taste buds!

I decided to try (not sure why I hadn’t before) a turkey and cranberry grilled cheese sandwich using Joan of Arc’s tasty goat cheese. I had a weird craving for Thanksgiving dinner even though it’s not here yet for another couple of weeks, and this did just the trick!

We had a lot of things planned for our trip to San Diego, but SeaWorld® was our first adventure! Seeing my daughters face light up as we walk up to SeaWorld is one of the reasons I get joy from being a parent.

The first thing we did when we entered the park, grabbed a map. It has all sorts of useful info on them, like times for the dolphin, orcas and sea lions shows and directions around the park since it’s pretty big! Our first stop after we strolled around the park was the dolphin habitat area.

Now, this isn’t an I know all things about potty training post because I am still in the process of trying to get my 2.5-year-old potty trained. She’s the size of a 4-year-old and I know the looks I get in public places when they see her in a diaper still are because she’s not wearing underwear. Little do they know, she’s big for her age. But that’s beside the point.

For about a couple months now, my daughter has been letting me know she’s pooped and/or peed and wants to be changed. She actually started sitting on the potty around the age of 2 and did pee in it once, but she hasn’t since. It could be because I kind of squealed and sat her down on her potty and maybe that frightened her, I dunno? Our real toilet is also very loud when flushed; It sounds like a jet engine, no joke.

But, How do you Make Potty Training Fun?

First, go pick up some Huggies Pull-Ups Plus from Costco.

You can save $7.00 on them right now through October 22. (if you’re still using diapers, you can save $8.50 on Huggies Plus Diapers too). I picked up the Pull-Ups Plus since they’re kind of like underwear and are easier for toddlers to slide on and off by themselves, especially if we’re not potty trained by the time our flight comes the 24th of this month. Those plane bathrooms are small enough without having to put a big toddler on the changing table, which I might add was too small when she was 7 months.
