My kids are 20 months apart which has made for some absolutely crazy-town phases. The one where Oshiolema decided to potty train at 21 months old while I was nursing a newborn and leaning over the toilet to wipe him was a good one. His two year old sleep regression timing up perfectly with her four months old sleep regression was fantastic and there were plenty more times I’m not crying over being past. This 1.5 + 3 year old phase, though? This makes up for every single one of them. I’ve also noticed in this phase my kids have needed less “stuff” than ever. We’ve simplified toys in a big way (legos, trains and baby dolls forever) and spend a good chunk of the day playing, reading and sneaky learning. Here are some of our current go-to’s throughout the day.
