Dun. Dun. Dun. Another Diaper Hits The Dust!
And another one fell, and another one fell, and another one fell. Another diaper hit the dust.
I have one child OFFICIALLY OUT of diapers!
Two nights ago on a whim Ewan decided that he didn't want a diaper for bedtime (the only time he wore a diaper) and that he wanted to try staying dry all night. We have been talking to him about it for a while but were waiting for him to take the initiative. Jon was pretty skeptical--mainly because Jon thought that Ewan was feeling a little lazy about putting the diaper on and that he didn't really want to stay dry at nighttime-- but I thought that if Ewan had an accident then we would just wait a while and try again. I thought he could do it if he wanted to. I have had a theory that he probably was staying dry at night and then peeing in his diaper in the morning because he knew he had it on.
So, we tried it and Ewan stayed dry all night for the past two nights. I know there will probably be an accident here and there but I am so thrilled for him! It makes me even prouder that he decided to do it himself and was successful! It feels like an extra special Mother's Day present.
And Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there!
