I firmly believe that diapers and Pull Ups should not be decorated with pretty princesses, cute cars or happy puppies. They should be emblazoned with screaming fiery demons at the gates of Hell and scary one eyed clowns. Maybe even come with some sort of horrific aroma like rotten garbage or skunk. I think that way the kids will learn to use the toilet pretty quickly. My daughter loves these Pull Ups more than chocolate chip cookies and I've had a hard time of her letting go.

She learned to use the toilet to pee about 2 months ago. It was a difficult battle because even after we took away the Pull Ups she would refuse to go to the bathroom and hold it in all day until her bladder was about to explode. She finally gave in.

Now that we have #1 taken care of #2 is the next hurdle.

Every night after her bath she stands next to the CD player in her room, Pull Up firmly in place and does her thing while listening to Queens of the Stone Age. Yes I know, odd choice of music for doing this particular function but she likes what she likes.

Her ritual is about to be halted. Permanently.

This week she has turned 3 (I have a 3 year old?) and the Pull Ups are so gone. Not sure what will happen but I guess I'll find out soon enough. I sure hope she doesn't try and mimic our dog Mango and poop on the living room rug.

Thanks for the kind words Stacy!

Thankfully it worked. No more Pull Ups for child #1. Child # 2 still in diapers. Ugh.

I completely agree with you, plus nothing is worse than when they do business in their pull-up and then pull it down themselves. YUCK! I love your blog, I think it is very funny!
