You know, I had stupidly thought that potty training a second time round would be sooo much easier than it was with our eldest.
How wrong could I be???
So we took a break. It was cold, even with the heating on we didn't really feel happy about him being almost naked all the time - and then all 3 got norovirus so nappies seemed essential for a while. But here lay our big mistake. We gave up. Only for a few months until it stopped being flipping freezing all the time, but it was long enough to undo all our hard work.
Yesterday he was at nursery. He wet his pants once while he was there, dirtied them too just at the end of the session, and then wet again an hour before bed. Today he's having a good day - so far - with a trip to town done with dry pants, and dry so far this afternoon. But we've a trip to a play area planned for after school with some of Jack's friends... I'm torn between a nappy and pants. A nappy might just set him back again, but the way the play area is set up he could be out of my sight for long periods of time - away from my reminders to go to the toilet - almost guaranteeing wet pants.
I guess I could leave the choice up to him.....
