Geez, give me access to SHARE again, and all of the sudden you can’t shut me up!!! Just call me blog-hog!! Now you really know why I’ve missed this so much!!! LOL!!
This is probably a repeat of a few other blogs of mine, only the ages have changed. POTTY TRAINING!!!!! GGGGGRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
It’s been two and a half years since we started on this road with Ryley. Sometimes, I feel like we’re still back on day one. He had been doing really well for the most part over the holidays, but the past few days, not so good. And that dreaded plastic bag was in his cubby, AGAIN, when I picked him up at school yesterday. He’s 5 1/2!!!! When does it end? When do we catch a break? In the grand scheme of things that COULD have gone wrong with this 26-weeker, but when you’re in it, it’s the most frustrating thing ever. I am starting to think that maybe he just will be the first kid to go off to college still wearing pull-ups and still wetting his pants!!!! Yesterday, counting the accident at school, he had THREE accidents! And just why do they call them “accidents”? He just waits too long, or couldn’t care less if he’s wet! AARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!
He’s not a stupid kid in the least. I KNOW he knows how to do this…well, most of the time anyways. I used to think there was something physically wrong with him, but after a month of being consistently dry (daytime only), I KNOW he can do it. Why he won’t is another story entirely. And we still aren’t even close at night. Michael has gotten him up at least twice during the night, every night, for the past week to go potty. He is still soaking in the morning. We’ve limited his late afternoon/evening fluid intake for over a year now, and still no success. I thought he might be inspired when his younger sister has no accidents, nd has been pull-up free for almost six months. NOTHING! At this point, I don’t even think it will affect him if Ethan is completely potty trained before he is!
I honestly don’t know what to do anymore. Ryley and I had a conversation last night. I told him he really has to try harder. He starts kindergarten in the Fall, and I don’t want other kids to laugh at him….that would hurt him so badly, and it would completely break my heart. I just don’t know what to say to him anymore, don’t know what to do.
Sorry for ranting again on this subject. It consumes me anymore, and it’s making me CRAZY!!!
