Diaper Free

I took Amanda to the grocery store last Saturday wearing only bloomers and cotton pants (and a shirt and shoes). Not the grocery store that's five minutes away but the one that's a half hour away. She stayed dry and pottied when we got to the store. Then, she stayed dry all the way home.

She's been staying dry when we've gone out and about to church, the neighbors and the chiropractor. And I've been struggling with keeping her protected but convenient for potty breaks. So, I decided since it was summer, I would put a waterproof pad in her car seat and bring an extra change of clothes. She's no more likely to have an accident or miss, as they are called in elimination comunication, than any two or three year old who is being potty trained.

I've ordered some pull-on training pants from the EC Store to use at fancy places like church where somebody else might be holding her. But for the most part, she'll be diaper-free when she's awake. She still wets her diaper at night and nap time, but I'd have to sleep with her in order to catch her before she wets when she wakes up. That won't be happening anytime soon.

By the way, Mike said we could adopt again when Amanda was out of diapers! Hee, hee, hee!

So you'll be working on your homestudy before fall?? :)

The training pants will be good for naps (later) and for when Amanda get to the "Me self!" stage, where my adorable daughter is.
