Is your child potty training? How much of your life does it seem like it consumes? For me it feels like, if I’m not helping them go to the bathroom, I’m cleaning up from when they didn’t make it! And I’m always buying packages of Huggies Pull-Ups. The trouble is that there is no one approach. Every child is so different when it comes to this.
Grace was the laziest kid to train. She was just as content as could be to be wet! Even when she could finally make it through the day, she’d pee the instant you put her in a nighttime diaper! We used to have to wake her up at 10 pm every night so that she could go to the bathroom and not have an accident at night. This went on for months!
Sophie was so easy! She actually slept the night without accidents before Grace did. And no, not in age, but really before Grace! The biggest issue Sophie had was night terrors. It took a couple of times before we realized that needing to pee actually triggered them for her. Once we got her to pee, she would calm down and be back asleep within 3 minutes. Have you ever gone through that? As a parent, you will be freaked out of your mind the first time it happens!
Matthew (of course it’s the boy) has been potty training for a long time now! He has these great successes and then reverts back. At first he didn’t care, but now when he reverts back, he gets frustrated and down on himself and then just gets more frustrated. He is a case where the Huggies Pull-Ups have really helped. We actually started sending him to school in them because he was having so many accidents that his confidence was taking such a hit that he was having trouble even wanting to be at preschool. It’s hard enough to adjust to a new place, but having accidents just makes it worse.
This past week, we were running low on our stash of Huggies Pull-Ups, so I had to head out with three kids who were off from school to get some more. Fun…..
Why does it seem like kids only want to take naps when they don’t have the option to? Matthew was almost completely asleep when we pulled into the parking lot! This boy never takes a nap!! He dragged through the entire store and really hung in there for me. When we got home, he was out and transferred to our bed. That boy was TIRED!
Apparently these were on a “Rollback” special. Is that what the red dot means? I don’t know; I didn’t see any signage. At the end of the day, though, they are cheaper here than anywhere else and we were out. In the buggy they go!
Along with the diapers, we got so new underwear for Matthew to start wearing. His old ones are starting to get tight and he got to pick them out. Feeling special and grown up is all part of the process, right? We also got him some treats for when he does the right thing. He loves Starburst candy just like his daddy. I just hope he doesn’t take the orange ones! While we were there we picked up a couple of Christmas presents for my grandmother, some dessert for Christmas dinner, and a snack for daddy!
Our Elf on the Shelf, Kingston, helped us out a little bit. They actually had a little trouble finding him that day. Hopefully, this hiding place will not be an option next year!
You already saw that we got Starburst candy for Matthew reward. We put them all in a candy jar on my side of the bed. Somehow the girls always con candy out of me when he gets his treat. What did they do that was so special?
