It was just over a year ago that it happened…
…I put the girls down for a nap, wearing the cutest little t-shirts, zipped snugly into their comfy blankets…
…when, an hour and a half later, I returned to find Baby A wide awake, smeared in poop.
I vowed never again to put the girls to bed in anything other than a onesie.
Baby A must have discovered the fun of opening the tape tabs on her diapers, as she seemed to take lots of joy in taking them off. The Onesie Rule quickly extended beyond the crib.
For the past year, Baby A has rarely been without a onesie. The girls wore lots of bubble suits last summer. And this winter, even if they were in shirts and pants, they were likely wearing a short-sleeved undershirt with snaps.
Baby A went through a couple of phases where she would wiggle out of her onesies in true Houdini fashion…getting her arms out, and pulling it down to step out of it…without ever unsnapping it. Thankfully, these phases were relatively short-lived.
A couple of weeks ago, Baby A figured out how to unsnap her onesies…and then, of course, she’d take her diaper off…and that ultimately marked the beginning of our potty-training adventures.
As of last Saturday, the girls have worn t-shirts a pants or shorts every day…actually, the easier to get off and on, the better.
It’s been freeing.
It’s so much easier to get the girls dressed, and they look so stinkin’ cute in their big girl outfits!
And, as I was shopping for some knit separates this weekend, it dawned on me that the girls deserve something extra-special to mark this momentous occasion…their first pair of pajamas!
I bought the girls the cutest little pajama sets. And if Spring will ever decide to stick around for a while, I can’t wait to see them dressed for bed.
And yes, for any of you doing the math, I very quickly sunk the next three months’ diaper savings into some new wardrobe items for the girls…but I just couldn’t resist.
This is one silver lining I hadn’t even considered as part of the Potty-Capades, but this is one surprise that this mama is loving!
