Pooping in the potty is proving to be a real challenge. I'm seeing a pattern: the boys keep their underpants or pull ups dry all morning, (hooray!) then durin nap, N poops in his pull up. No big surprise there-he's been driving me crazy with this poop -at-naptime philosophy for over a year. So I kind of expected it and can deal easier with the mess.
M, our "model student," wants to get it right so badly. He understands that he's not supposed to go in his pull up, but apparently can't feel it until it's already on its way, so he has half an accident in the underpants and finishes the job in the bathroom. I know he's on a pretty steep learning curve, but I lost count how many number 2 accidents he had today. That's because Hubby got a few of them while I was attempting to fix dinner.
On a positive note, dinner was a surprise success. I breaded and pan fried tilapia and called them "fish nuggets," served with carrot sticks and ranch dressing. They both ate every bite an M asked for more. Wow, praise God! Guess I'll be making that again. It's hard to find an adult meal we and the kids both like.
Also, both boys went pee pee at the church this morning and kept their pull ups dry for the 30 min rides there and back, so we are still making progress. It's hard to remember that when I've got a pile of dirty stinky bottoms to start washing now.
Just tell me it gets better and I'm doing the right thing, even if it's the hard way. (won't be the first thing I've done the hard way.)
