Our Little Turkey
So yesterday I said to Kendal "Kendal, your diaper is getting pretty soggy. Go get a clean diaper and I will change you." She said to me "No, I fine." and kept playing. I have purposely been letting her diaper get drenched soggy so it will be uncomfortable so she MIGHT have a desire to get rid of those dang diapers and use the toilet. I only offer to change her when I realize the urine is going to start leaking out, or she is stinky. She could care less.
So after I said that I waited about 10 minutes and said it again. She replied, "No mom, I fine." I spied on her and within 3 minutes she was in the bathroom (where we keep the diaper paraphernalia) taking off her socks and her pants. She then took off her 8 pound soaked pull up diaper, got a clean pull up out of the drawer and put it on. She then put back on her socks and was attempting her pants when she got angry. She brought her pants to me and said "Hep mom, inside out." I fixed her pants, helped her get them on and then said "You need to take care of that soggy diaper you left on the floor in the bathroom." The little turkey said very sweetly, "No sanks mom, you do it" smiled and left. I thought to myself "OH DEAR!"
I was telling Matt this story last night when the girls were in bed and he just about died. He HATES it that she is still not potty trained, and so do I. But I am much more patient about it than he is. For goodness sakes, she is 3 1/2 years old! Matt just rolled his eyes at this story and said "Great, why go on the toilet when you can change your own diapers!?!" I love that little girl!
