  • Are you sure it's a lie? My daughter has been walking for a couple of months now and she's only 10 months old.
    My sister and I were both using the potty by 9 months old. We weren't "potty trained" exactly, but my mum would sit us on the potty after every meal and when she thought we needed to go.
    She didn't have a daytime dirty diaper after we hit 9 months old.

    Maybe she's not lying. She may be exaggerating the truth a bit.

    Although...maybe she is totally full of it. lol

  • Pssh. I'll never understand why people lie about things like that. I mean, really, if you're going to lie, make sure it's not something you can easily get caught in!

  • I can do you one 65 year old MOTHER adamantly believes that she TAUGHT HERSELF how to use the toilet when she was SIX MONTHS OLD!!! LMAO!!!

    She says she CRAWLED over to the toilet (didn't have separate potty chairs back then), removed her diaper (remember they used cloth diapers and SAFETY PINS back then), did her business, and then PUT HER DIAPER BACK ON!!!

    She actually got angry with me, and didn;t speak to me for weeks afterward, because I laughed hysterically at her!! But COME ON!!! LOL :o)

  • my mom does that. I told her my son was transitioning to a bed at 19 months, she was all "you and your sister werent in a bed till 3!!!!!!" She wasnt sayng it just to mention a fact, but to basically tell me I also needed to wait till my son was 3. Sorry, that isnt how it works lol

  • Walking I believe, potty trained not so much. She might have put her son on the potty but i doubt he would be able to understand when he needed to go.

  • LMAO, my F.I.L. does stuff like this all the time. MY DH and I have a secret arm tap we give eachother when he starts to spout... My M.I.L. hates it, says it embarasses her. We love the guy and just rolls our eyes when he gets going... too funny...
