For a little while I have wondered if the kids would do better at telling me they had to go potty if I put them in regular underwear instead of training underwear. We made a trip to WalMart yesterday to peruse the selection. The hardest part is deciding if I am just wasting money because their teeny little body is going to be swimming in a 2-3T. We weighed them the other day and they have lost a few pounds this summer and are down to 27.5lbs. With two different brands as options, we headed home. One of the options for Sara has a waist that is 2 inches bigger than the other so I will be taking those back. She picked stripes to start with and loved them. Adam chose the cars.
We have also been talking for a few days about what they can say if they need to go potty.
After about 15 minutes Adam started fussing and was standing in a puddle. He was very disappointed he got his cars wet. While I was cleaning Adam up, Sara ran in yelling "Mama go potty", pulled her pants down and got on the potty all by herself!
Sara told me she had to go 3 times and got a "special" M&M (peanut butter) and had no accidents all day! Adam only had the one accident.
A very exciting day. We'll see what happens on day #2 of new undies and if we have as much success as yesterday.
I must admit it was quite exciting to pack a dinky little package of diapers for our weekend trip and that was packing a bunch extra! Before I would have to pack more than that quantity just for one of them. I see about $100 coming back into my monthly budget very soon!
