Delicious patty melts sitting on a garlic Texas toast soaked in gravy and topped with melted cheese.
So let’s talk about 2 year olds for a second…2 year olds that are the 3rd child and have a new little baby in their house…2 year olds that all of the sudden do not want to potty anymore and who love to tell you “No!”
Yea, that’s what’s happening in our house right now. The baby is 3 weeks and suddenly we have some issues. I was waiting on this to happen; however, I did think at first, we might just not have a problem because she was doing so well acting like nothing new was going on around here. But here we are now…having issues.
I just keep telling myself this stage will pass, and she will finally finish potty training successfully.
She will FINISH potty training one of these days.
She WILL FINISH potty training one of these days.
SHE WILL FINISH POTTY TRAINING ONE OF THESE DAYS.
Just some positive thoughts…
And for some other positive thoughts, I share with you these Patty Melts.

Laura O @Petite Allergy Treats says
Oh no… It happens to everyone and when it does it’s hard on everyone. Take a break from potty training. You both deserve it for a bit. When she wants she’ll do it. Hang in there Super Mom!
Thanks for the encouragement Laura!

These Patty Melts look so good, they remind me of the ones at Steak and Shake, which I miss SO much out here in Hawaii. I’m going to give yours a try though, because they are calling my name! And Jaren, you are totally amazing for posting such awesome recipes while potty training, caring for your kiddos, AND having a 3-week old at home!! Seriously! And oh yes, she will finish potty training one of these days! We had to kind of give up with my son until he turned 3 because it was just not happening, but I’ve heard it’s a lot easier to potty train girls. Hang in there though, mama, and go easy on yourself. 🙂
You’re so sweet Ashlyn! Thanks for the encouragement!
These look incredibly delicious!
