Mommy SOS | Potty Training

Years before thinking about having children, Kevin and I met a couple who, being pregnant with their first, told us about their plans to go diaper free with their baby.  Huh? Well, I have no clue how that turned out for them, since we moved and lost touch.  But, I was so curious, that I […]
