We have now regressed backwards into pull-ups. It's too hard and nasty to change a dirty pair of underwear twice a day vs. a quick pull-up change, not to mention the loads of sanitizing laundry! ugh. I need help. I need patience. The kid is so stubborn. He knows exactly what he's doing, too, which is the hard part. He'll go hide in the closet or around the corner and yell "go away" if I try to come near. Worse yet, if we catch him mid-go and try to get him to the potty, he'll have a bloody-murder throw down kicking screaming fit about it.
My mom and mother-in-law keep telling me that patience is the key and to not get upset. But how do you not get upset when they know how to do it, have done it before, yet deliberately disobey? We have put the fun underwear away, up in the closet and he doesn't get to wear them anymore until he can be a big boy. Makes me sad because I loved watching him strut around the house in his fancy pants!
