These hard decisions….pull ups versus keeping in diapers. Which one to do? With our oldest, she was in pull-up style diapers by age two. With my middle one, I have been waiting and waiting. She is two and a half and honestly, I hate pull-ups. HATE.THEM. Why? Once you undo that side, there ain’t no going back. Diapers, at least you get some break. Also, there are not as many pull-ups thus making them cost inefficient. Yep, I’m frugal. Ok, a cheap bastard with some of this stuff.
As well, those pull-ups never take into account wiggle room for hips and big butts on little kids. All cheeks are not created equal. I just don’t like them. I don’t believe any of it has to do with the fact that my kids are growing up and this is one of those things associated therein. I think it is more what I said before. As well, with this child she has NO interest in using the restroom on a constant basis. Neither rewards, prizes or threats work. She just doesn’t feel the urge. She’d rather pee her diaper a gallon and potentially leak versus sitting on a toilet. I’m beginning to wonder if she’ll be in those things when she darts in the door in kindergarten.
If so, I will have fought the good fight and tried. I will also then be the laughing stock on an elementary school parent list. Oh darn. She will let me and her momma know when she is ready. Not a moment too soon either I don’t think.
