    Hi Moorea,

    I was so bummed that I missed your Potty Savvy class last Sunday. I had even signed up at Birth & Beyond and unfortunately had to cancel because of a birthday party for which I was hosting. I am in the midst of potty training my 11 month-old son and have so many questions. Would I be able to meet up with you sometime for coffee, tea, or just a pastry? I live in the Northgate area.

      Hi Annie!
      I am so sorry you had to cancel! Fortunately you are so far ahead of the game. I am waiting on my “reviews” from the potty class before we set up another class there but I will imagine the class won’t be for another month. If you are really interested in working hard at potty savviness right now, what I can offer you is a parent coaching session over the phone and I can email you all of the materials along with that. It would be $50 for 45 minutes for the one-on-one and it would answer all of your questions you have accumulated so far. Email me mooreamalatthicks@gmail.com
