Dry day

Yea! We had our first dry day in probably a week. I realized yesterday that in the last load of laundry I did for Owen there were 9 pairs of pants and 4 shirts. Doesn't sound too bad until you add in the (at least) 3 pairs of pants I washed separately because they were part of pooping incidents! So, if you do the math, that's an average of 3 pairs of pants per day. Ugh! But I think the new strategy might be starting to sink in. We went to the mall today, straight from school, so we were out of the house all day. I brought three extra sets of clothes, just in case. (I didn't tell Owen that -- I didn't want him to know that I expected him to fail.) But, this evening, I put all three sets back in his dresser drawers!

Woo Hoo! you knew he could do it! You just had to take the rewards out of the equation and make it a normal part of life. Excellent! Good Mommying!

I knew it wouldn't be long before it clicked.

Oh, no, it hasn't clicked. That was just one day. Today we had a NASTY poop that required a quick bath to clean him up and pretty much wiping down the whole bathroom, it seemed like. I think I'm approaching THAT time and not dealing with it well today.
