So my little L has been night trained over a year and due to her tummy issues, we had a setback over the summer that put her back in diapers during the day. I think (knock on wood) we have finally put her tummy issues to rest, so I thought I would go ahead and take the diapers away again.
She did so good all last night and all day today. Well when she woke up from her nap this evening, it wasn’t good. Oh my it wasn’t good. My ears, the tears that were flowing from my face, her face, her big sis M trying to soothe her. It just wasn’t good :(. L was screaming from the top of her lungs that she wanted a diaper. She wasn’t taking that little two word NO either.
You all this broke my heart to pieces. I DO NOT let my girls cry. We have always been attached and I have always been there for them drop of a hat, so to hear L cry like this was tearing me to shreds. Finally after about a hour of soothing, talking calmly, (I never once lost control of myself) and assuring her everything was going to be ok, she went “woo woo” in the potty twice. That’s all her little tummy needed and I had back my pretty blue-eyed, black hair girl. The smile and her arms around my neck was just what I needed. I had told Nell that I needed a (((HUG))) tonight and just a bit after that… I got it from my baby girl :). So we are day 2 down…. can we make it through day 3. Chant with me!!!! I don’t know what I’ll do with not having to buy diapers anymore after 6 years.
