Action

The good news is, after speaking with best friend the other night I heeded her advice. We are eradicating Middle's nap habit, yesterday was the first day. Last night he went to bed and didn't get up. Now mind you, I went to bed at 7 o'clock so I have no idea about any of it. King Daddy gave me the scoop this morning.

Next is potty training. I haven't really pushed this all that much between working and dealing with laundry when having accidents, I just can't deal. However, last night was the last straw. Middle had a poop, he resisted changing and "held" on to it for far longer than I care to admit. When I inquired of King Daddy if he still had a poop, while prone on the couch dozing, Middle decided to prove to me that he did, in fact still had a poop. He stuck his hand down his diaper and came out with the proof. I woke to a little toddler finger with a poop top. I was gagging. We are Mock 10 to potty training.

Oldest is just like her mother. Yesterday was her 5 year well visit. Her underwear was on backwards.

Author's note = success today. He is a night pooper so it remains to be seen if he will poop on the potty, but he tinkled all day!!!!

Doh! Spoke too soon. By the time I spotted him, the Crouching Tiger Pooping Toddler, was done. Progress none the less, tinkles all day! I will not, however let him examine his poop. I told him when he poops on the potty he can examine it all he wants. SO GROSS!

I have several friends who had the poop problem. One little girl refused to poop at school and would hold it all. A pediatric urologist came to talk to my moms group about potty training and he suggested using natural laxatives for a few days so that they have to go. It sounded potentially messy to me, but it could work.
