Someone please tell me that Blake will not be 18 and still peeing in his underwear. Seriously, I really need someone to tell me that. It's been months of this back and forth regression and I'm about to pull my last hair out. Just when we think he's on the upswing, he slides back down. It's the most frustrating thing in the world. Literally, I sit there thinking, "am I really that bad of a parent?"
Owen just decided one day he was done with underwear and that was that. Madison is starting to pee and poop on the potty without any coaxing, bribing or begging. But Blake? No, Blake just doesn't give a hoot. If he's too busy playing to stop and go potty, he just goes right there in his pants. And it doesn't seem to bother him that his pants are wet either. We've tried everything from praise to discipline. I'm at a complete loss. There are few things I can't conquer, but Blake and potties is going to be the straw that breaks my freaking back.
Any suggestions? Seriously, I'll take them. I mean if you want to borrow him for a couple days and bring him back fixed, I'm willing. Maybe that's it. Maybe I broke my child.
Tomorrow is another day. Is it sad that I pray for dry pants? I do. Every single flipping day, "Lord, please let Blake have a good day, learn more about you, and not relieve himself in his superhero underroos."
I feel like I'm stuck in a rendition of "The Song That Never Ends," sung to the tune of "Nanny Nanny Boo Boo" Am I part of some Gotcha reality TV show? If that's the case, you guys can jump out at anytime and replace the fake Blake with the real thing.
Do you sense my desperation yet? I need a solution, and short of selling him on the black market, I'm open to any and all advice. Thank you.
I'm 30,married with 2 of the most adorable little boys, a beautiful baby girl and a dog named Reese. Neil, my fabulous chemistry-loving, kayak paddling hubbie, loves doing projects around the house and rolling around on the floor with his boys. We've been married 7 years and just bought our second house in Catonsville, MD. I love to save money when I shop and am known amongst my friends as the guru of thrift (that might be more my terminology than theirs). I'm also a day camp director at Grace Adventures Day Camp. I like to cook, plan events, write (hence the blog),shop (hence the guru), & coffee with friends (okay really anything with friends). I also like to just veg out and watch my shows (maybe a little too much). If you want to know more, you'll just have to read.
