Can Our Kids Get a Freaking Break?

Unless you live in a cave (or maybe your kids aren’t old enough to do this),  you probably are aware that Water Bottle Flipping is A Thing.

We can wax philosophical all we want but I like to remind people that there really is a HUGE reason why potty training has gotten harder over the years.  WHY generations before us didn’t have the potty training struggles we have now.
