Deep breath. Here we go.
I finally gave up my mantra of “diapers just aren’t that bad” for “enough is enough.” I’m just tired of cleaning up stinky bottoms and dealing with stinky diapers. So I’ve been preparing Nathan this week and talking about “big boy pants” – to which he promptly replies, “I don’t WANT big boy pants!”
We went to Wal-Mart this afternoon and he picked out underwear with Cars, Mickey Mouse, and Diego. We’ve had extensive conversations about how he “doesn’t want to get Mickey messy! Nooooo!” – and so far, it seems to be working. No accidents yet …though we still have not achieved poopage in the potty.
It’s going to be a LOOOONG weekend.
(BTW, I stole the idea for the first picture from the latest issue of Creating Keepsakes. Love that magazine!)
