Proud Mama

My little girl is growing up. She no longer needs pull ups at night. Where did my baby girl go?

But I am so proud of her. She did it much quicker than her bro did. That's okay, she has done a LOT of things quicker than he did. Probably because she had him to copy off of.

Now I have an almost complete thing of pull ups sitting there that we won't use to donate to someone.

I'm going to open a can of worms. However, those worms can kindly butt out.

Our Boo still does wear Pull Ups to bed. I feel horrible about it, but she does have the occasional accident.

Most of the time she's fine and she wakes up dry in the morning, but she does have the occasional fits where she refuses to be potty trained (right after she comes back from her mom's, so I think she might be rebelling a bit) and decides that the world is her toilet. Then she gets self aware of the fact that she has urinated all over herself and gets even more upset because she knows she's "a big girl".

No matter what anyone may say, letting her have pullups when she goes to bed at night is something of a comfort to her. She rarely needs them, but it saves her being upset in the long run.

That said, we're transitioning slowly to big kid pants for night times. We'll see how that goes :)

I think all of this is to say, I am proud of your little one! I just wish we can follow the completely pull-up-less tract here soon :)

Give it time
Your Boo is a muchly special child. And well loved to boot.

She will, in HER time, become fully potty trained.

As with all kids, its in THEIR own time. No matter how much we want it to be ours.

Cam took until about a year ago to finally quit having nightly accidents.

I'm expecting the occassional accident from Boo Boo Kitty. I still get them from Cam, though few and far between.

I will just be prepared with an immediate sheet change is all. :)

And there is nothing wrong with some extra comfort and security.

My two still have their blankies - though the blankies stay at home.

Re: Give it time
Boo is a very special child. Although we should meet up sometime for the Zoo, because she has come leaps and bounds this summer. She can ask some pretty interesting questions :)

And I agree with it being her timetable. It's why I don't rush her and I let her do things on her own. Recently, she's even been able to go to the bathroom by herself without needing to ask the adults around her. She did that by herself and with much "Da, I have to go to the bathroom." "Okay, your stool is right there. Have at!". I am pretty proud of her for that one.

She's already got a hard road in front of her, and we don't want to make it any more complicated than either of us have to. If a pull up keeps her from being upset, she's more than welcome to one.
If she decides that it's okay when she has an accident, then we can start doing big kid pants.

Most of this is rambling :) Her pull ups stay at home as well, along with her security blanket.

The kids would LOVE hangin with the Boo.

While I cannot begin to imagine what it is like to parent such a special child, my own sister has her disabilities (mentally about 16 while physically 24) and has had them all of her life - so I can sympathize.

It takes a strong person to parent special children such as these.

To those who do I stand up and say Bravo!!
