We have a vicious little cycle at our house. Grace takes a monster nap in the morning (like 2 hours long), so she's just waking up when I want to put Carson down. So after lunch I'll put him down, then Grace about a half hour later. Grace chatters away in her room while Carson's quiet, then as soon as she's quiet, he has to go potty or something...back and forth until about 3 when I give up. No one naps and we are all grouchy.
So today, I put them both down around 1. Grace wasn't tired, but I thought we'd try anyway. 10 minutes into my quiet time alone, Carson has to go potty. So I take him in the bathroom and then back to bed when his business is done. 5 minutes later, Grace is quiet. "Wow" I think, "that was easy". 5 minutes later, Carson has to go poop. GREAT! (We are still working on that one). So I take him in, he works it out, and we go to the kitchen for a smarshmallow for going poop in the toilet. Then it's back to bed...this naptime should go perfectly!! 10 minutes later "Mom, I have to pee." "Go to bed" I said...there is no way he has to pee again! "Can I go now?", "No", "How 'bout now?", "No, go to bed", "Now?", "Carson-GO TO BED" 5 minutes later he's crying because he peed his pants.
How bad do I feel? Not only did I force my newly potty trained son to pee his pants, but we also woke up Grace when we cleaned him up! Crappy naps today. Crappy feeling mom today. Maybe we'll all do better tomorrow! :)
