March 17, 2009

I have finally decided to finalize (she wrote with a grin) our potty training efforts. I must confess that the reason the boys are not fully trained already is because I have not wanted to clean up accidents. Starting yesterday, we went to big boy pants only, even when going somewhere outside of the house. So far, so good. I just have to do more laundry for a few days and hopefully that will be the end of it.
But I'm not sure about night times. I had read to go ahead and put them in big boy pants at night too and just limit their drink intake before bedtime. Our problem with that is that we eat dinner late and there is not enough time between dinner and bedtime to really take care of that. So, I'm not sure how to handle this, other than just staying in pull ups at night for a while longer.

I have had so many funny-boy-things come up during this short time of not blogging and so many thoughts about things I wanted to blog about. Isn't that the way it always is? As soon as you stop, you think of tons of things to say. The only funny-boy-thing I can think of right now was that the boys and I were all in the bathroom the other day, taking care of business. Ben was standing next to me and I can't remember now what he was doing. He might have just finished pulling his pants up. He tooted and then he looked up at me and smiled and said "I making music!". That was certainly not what I expected to hear and I cracked up laughing.

Lea, I'm so glad you've decided to continue blogging. I miss not hearing about the boys and it just feels so right to read your posts. I can't wait to see you guys next week. I think that is so precious what B said. Anyway, glad you're back.

Welcome back. I will have to remember to add you to my reader. I just deleted it. Yes my kids have always used covers. Dont your kids get cold with nothing over them to keep them warm?

lea, when i toilet-trained the kids, i moved them into underwear during the day on day 1. it made the toilet-training period messy and fast. for the first week or two, i kept them in diapers at night. once they got to the point that they were not having any accidents during the day, i moved them to underwear for nights - and, for all three, it was a surprisingly smooth and easy transition.

i am glad you are back blogging! have a blast with it.
