Plastic pants sound funny

Qade’s plastic pants came in the mail yesterday!!! Hurray! Today he’s been wearing them over his “unders” and I have to work on not cracking up every time he moves!! We were playing outside, and at one point I thought, it sounds like it’s raining, but the sun was shining, weird. Then I realized I was hearing Qade’s pants as he ran across the yard. Ha! 🙂 They work great too! Contain the mess quite nicely. In fact he’ll be swimming along in nice little puddle, but at least it’s not on the floor!!! So far it hasn’t made him ask to use the potty FIRST yet, but I know the time will come. We’ve been through 3 unders and 3 washed out plastic pants today, but we’ll keep on trying. Practice makes perfect!
Today I’m feeling very lazy. I don’t want to do anything but sleep. THAT however isn’t on the schedule. Bummer!! I did get some laundry done, and dishes and all that fun cleaning jazz. I worked outside some fixing up the dog’s dog house. He had some kind of rodent family living under there this summer, and tried to dig them out several times. I got a shovel and leveled the dirt some and moved his house a bit. I’m also airing out his old blankets that sat in a heap all summer. He dragged those out thinking that he could somehow pound through the floor to get the thing under his house. Pretty funny. I figure since it’s getting chilly he might need to sleep IN his house at some point. Right now though, he’s locked OUT of the pen because I don’t want him digging under there and messing up all my nice renovations!
I’m thinking about frying chicken for supper tonight, but like I said, I’m feeling pretty lazy, so we’ll see if I can find the motivation to do it. Sounds good though doesn’t it?
So do you have any fun plans for the weekend?? Potty training is still on my list, so that narrows it down quite a bit. I’ll be so happy when this boy decides that he wants to be trained. 🙂 I’m sure the new pants will help because no one likes to feel icky, wet and cold. Once he figures that pull-ups are history except for nap and bed-time, I think he’ll be quick to get it together. He did ask for a pull-up today, but the funny thing is when I told him to get one for nap-time, he came back with underwear instead. Oh, and something else he’s figured out is that when we put him down for nap or bed, he says he needs to go potty. Do you think he really does??? No, of course not, because I take him right before anyway. He’s just trying to postpone the bedtime deal. Smart kid! 🙂
Well, Myles is chirping at me that it’s time for him to get up from his nap, so away I go. Have a fabulous fun weekend friends!
