Day Two - The Other Half Sprung a Leak!


That's right; The Mischief Man had a big accident late today....oy! I will get back to that in a moment though...


First, let me tell you that they both woke up dry!! I slept very lightly last night as my ears were perked in case one of them needed us in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. At 2:00 am one of them cried out in their sleep and I was across the house in a millisecond thinking I would find one of them in a wet bed. I found both of them sound asleep. I felt for wetness; there was none and then I headed back to my restless sleep :(

They usually wake up by 7:00 am so I set my alarm to be up before them so that I could get right in there before any accidents happened and was so happy to find everyone dry. Marc was there to back me up this morning but then he had to go to work so I was outnumbered.

Katie did great today. She told me every time that she wanted to go pee pee and the only little accident she had was when she did not get her panties down quite quickly enough. They ended up a little wet but really not much. The one issue we seem to be having with her is that she is holding back on a bowel movement. She tends to be quite constipated so I gave her some prunes after her nap to do the trick and it did not. I am using the suggestions that the e-book gave me but with no luck so far. Lots of gas but no poop. Tomorrow there will be lots of water and fiber needless to say. Sorry if this is too much info but I am just telling it like it is.

Now, back to Ethan. He always tells me when he has to poop but I usually have to remind him to pee. This is mostly because he does not have the conversational skills that she has. The method I am using with her would not have been as easy with him at this juncture. Nonetheless, he has been diaper free for quite awhile with no accidents. Tonight, before bed I heard him make a weird noise and I looked over to see him grabbing his boyhood. I tried to rush him to the toilet but did not make it and instead he was left standing in a puddle. I used the phrases that the e-book suggests with him as I have been doing with her so we will see how that goes.

OK, I am off to multi task as I browse mindlessly on the www while I watch something equally mindless on television. Calgon...take me away......

My computer is back up and running, so...I just love the picture on your post. It's just too cute. Sounds like things are moving along at your house. Rachel was holding #2 also, but she has gone now. It will happen. Gotta update my blog now. So how was the Calgon? I totally understand.

Ugh.

I am so happy Potty Boot Camp is going well! We have 'the book' as well and I guess we will be beginning it with Sophie VERY SOON! You know I am fine with all the details, but I promise you that you had better spare me any up-close-and-personal photos (inside joke, here) or I am outta here! ;-)
