As the Potty-capades go, Baby A is doing very well.
Over the past couple of days she’s been napping in her undies, and so far we haven’t had any security breaches. She’s waking up dry in the mornings, too, but I’m not quite ready to let go of the safety of a nighttime diaper…and she doesn’t seem to mind.
Baby B is still quite the confident diaper-wearer.
I do think she may be making small strides in the direction of the potty. Over the past two or three weeks, she’s become very particular about her diaper. She starts yelling immediately after she gets wet or dirty, “Mommy!!! Go change my diaper!!! I have tee-tees!!!” I hope that means she’s becoming more aware of bathroom activities.
I’m still A-okay with Baby B taking her time at this point, although I wonder if she’ll “train herself” like Baby A did a few months ago, or if she’ll require a different tact.
I decided to tempt the hands of fate earlier this week.
Target has an excellent deal on diapers right now…but you have to buy A LOT of diapers to get the deal. Specifically, I am now the proud owner of 224 shiny new Pampers Cruisers.
I laughed to myself a bit…having so many diapers on hand, it’s my luck that tomorrow Baby B will wake up and tell me she is a big girl, that she will not be wearing diapers ever again.
And then I decided I’d take the risk.
If Mr. Murphy (of Murphy’s Law fame) wants to help me out, I’m all for it. The $70 I spent on diapers would be well worth having TWO potty-trained kiddos.
…or, if not…I’m set to respond to Baby B’s alarms in high style for another couple of months.
