Today was day 8! I have hesitated to get my hopes up, jinx myself, whatever one might call it. It has been 8 days since Dex left the diaper-booty behind. He has had only one pee-pee accident in that time. He threw an all-out fit last Saturday morning when Nick tried to put a diaper on him, yelling "Underwears!" We had been practicing wearing underwear on Saturdays, having lots of accidents like the one at the Easter bunny's feet. We were going to run several errands last Saturday, so I was a little remiss about venturing out for the morning in "underwears." However, the fit was so intolerable I resigned myself to putting him in a diaper somewhere down the road and tossing some pee-soaked "underwears" in a parking lot trashbin. Since then, we've been to church, pre-school, the ball field, Wal-Mart, and restaurants sporting "underwears." Now, once a day he still has to deposit a terd in his "underwears!" But it will come. And then, after 8 long years of changing diapers all day, we will be diaper-free. Just like that.
I am blessed to be the mom of four beautiful, brilliant children (no bias here!) and the wife of a handsome, intelligent man! Awww! I work as a fitness instructor part-time, which ensures I get my stress-relieving workout daily -- and that I can occasionally eat cookies without too much cellulite damage (I stress the 'too much'). We are originally from a small town near Hot Springs, Arkansas, and have lived in Greenwood for about 4 years now. We are University of Arkansas and University of Missouri - Columbia alums and members of First Baptist Greenwood. I can't say that I have any serious hobbies right now -- did I mention that I have four kids, ages 6 and under!! Ha!
