Certainly hoped we would never have to utter those words to our girls. But apparently, Addison does NOT care for her pull-up any longer.
She is doing incredibly great with the whole potty training thing. We have been all over the city, running errands, always prepared with a back-up change of clothing, of course, but we haven’t had one accident. She really likes her big girl panties.
She, however, (much like her older sister) does not care to, uh…do the #2 in the potty, yet. (Sorry, if that is a little too much information for you. If it was – you might want to skip the rest of this post. I’m just saying, the “poop” talk isn’t over.)
So, again just like Emma did, Ad “saves” up her poop-duty for naptime. And I have been attempting to put a pull-up on her in preparation for the event.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that she is working really, really hard on trying to give up her nap completely. Well at least when I put her down…she does still nap for Denise. (Grumble, grumble, grumble.)
Yesterday, I gathered her up and so hopefully put her down for a “rest.” After about an hour, she started complaining pretty loudly. I let her go for a little bit, and finally J. caved and went up to get her. Pretty soon he sent Em down and she gleefully informed me, “Addie pooped the bed! Daddy really needs some wipes and paper towel.”
Fantastic. Apparently when he got upstairs, all of her animals, blankets, books, etc. were tossed out of the crib. She was standing completely naked (she was fully dressed when I put her down – including bottom-half of Cinderelly) at one end of the crib screaming about the little “pile” at the other end of the crib.
Today, when I so optimistically put her down for her “rest,” I figured there is no way that we’ll have a repeat of yesterday. I truly am naive, you’d think with 4+ years of this mom-thing under my belt, I would be a little bit smarter about all of this.
You can, of course, see where this is going. We’ve been through three sets of sheets in the past two days. Anybody have any ideas how to keep the pull-up on her butt? Believe me, I am not above using duct tape, if that is what it takes.
(Hi Mom & Dad – I know, I know. At least she just “screams” at the poo, and doesn’t smear it, use it for paint, or something else….what did you do to keep my pants on??)
