The wee wee problem has not been fixed and I am giving up. We tried our best, but Amy is no where near ready for no nappies at night. There were a few nights that she was dry, but only because i got up several times to put her on the toilet. When I didn’t, she wet the bed, then put herself on the floor to sleep. It is getting too cold in the night to keep up these shenanigan. Also she still will only poop in the nappy. When she didn’t wear one for 5 days, she just didn’t poop. Now this is not good. No matter how many times I put on the loo and bribed her with wonderful things, it wasn’t going to happen. She flatly refuses. In exasperation yesterday, I put a nappy on her and within 5 minutes she had filled it and was feeling much better!
So that is why we are not pushing this issue anymore. She isn’t ready and I don’t want to give her a psychosis.
In other news….Meg finally lost her second top tooth. She looks hilarious – all red hair, freckles and gaps. I had Holly at the orthodontist last week and his exact words were…”Oh what a mess”. Upshot of that is to wait 12 months for the baby teeth to be out, then an expander on the top teeth cemented in for 6 months, followed by years of braces. Not that I am surprised. I had braces for well over 2.5 years and her teeth and a bit better than mine at the same age.
School back next week but before that we have an ANZAC Biscuit Bake-Off on Sunday at mums. The challenge has been called and we are all baking our best bikkies. I have had a few goes (thanks to Adas for the recipe) and the first batch were a bit hard and crunchy. Justin said that this was the first time he could use food as a weapon. How rude!! Next couple of lots have been much better. I have to stop eating them however. My waistline will never recover.
Soccer starts tomorrow for the girls. Jess is in the Pee Wee’s, Meg Under 8’s and Holly Under10’s. Of course all at different times and possibly different ovals. I guess that is better than at the same time but different ovals! I’m grateful for small things.
Have a great weekend.
