I bought a Thai prayer mat from this website: http://houseofthailand.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=162

Since it's meant for kneeling, it's really perfect. And any splashes dry while it's tucked atop our Ikea Expedit unit each night.


Where Do You Sit During Bath Time?

Call me crazy, but as a stay-at-home mom, I started toilet training our daughter at 5 months. Because she was in a good routine, it was very easy to predict her movements. We read books, sing songs and make each trip to the loo a very happy occasion. She's 15 months now and she's wearing cotton undies for playtime, and diapers for naps and sleeping through the night. We haven't had a poopy diaper in months! She tells me "doo doo" when she needs to go, and says "all done" when she's finished. I have a few reasons for working at this day in and day out, but mostly I feel it's the environmentally responsible thing to do, and I also believe most babies really are clever enough to be trained before 2.

Amen to Statgrrl's comment! Put together a pretty hand-written menu, throw in a few magazines, above all be thoughtful. But the delivery itself should be equivalent to ding dong ditching. I once had friends "drop off" a meal. They stayed for dinner. Awkward!
