Naked Time Potty Time

Tralee loves to be naked. Changing her diaper has turned into a real struggle. As soon as she feels the sweet freedom of a bare bum, she does everything in her power to avoid getting trapped into another diapered experience. To avoid her running away after we take her diaper off, we try to change her on her changing table, because she's a bit more cautious up there. However, this morning I was changing her downstairs on the couch. As soon as her diaper was off, she wiggled and squirmed until I gave up and decided to let her bum have a minute or two of sweet naked freedom. BIG MISTAKE! Jim and I were watching her run around, as happy as can be when all of a sudden she stopped and stood still. Then it happened: SHE PEED. . . on the CARPET!! She looked a little sheepish afterwards as I explained that's why I keep her in diapers. I didn't get mad, I actually laughed. It was kind of funny. Plus, she didn't struggle to get away when I put her diaper on. She just laid there with an embarrassed look on her face. Luckily it was just a little peep, not a big one, because cleaning it up wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. AND luckily it wasn't a poo! So. . . that's our day so far.
This afternoon we're going to Jim's Uncle's house for an Easter Egg hunt. Usually Jim's Mom does the egg hunt, but she's out of town this year. So, we're off to Eagle to hunt Easter Eggs. I made Mellow Jello to bring and Red Velvet Cup Cakes. I've wanted to try the red velvet recipe for a few weeks, but never did because I knew if I made them, I would eat them. So, this was the perfect occasion to try them. I made them, and now I can give them away. They turned out great!

So there you go and there you are.

It is so cute to see them running around naked, until they pause for 2 seconds and make a mess on the floor! I think all of us parents are with you on that one;)

i still remember Haylee 'missing' for a few moments after her bath and pooing on the kitchen floor. Brady's done it too...i think it was always after a bath. they just run around and think it's a game - a race to get the diaper on before the bodily function takes effect.
