PL: 3 hits, 2 misses. Not so bad for the first day, eh? The first miss was because I said "Lets go upstairs and you can go potty." and just saying it made her start peeing.
The second miss was during my terrible long wait at the doctor's office. I had her sit on the potty for a long time before going into his office, but she couldn't go. A while into the wait (maybe 30 min?) she took a drink from my water bottle and just started peeing. Luckily we were on tile flooring and I came prepared. I had everything cleaned up, her included, without anyone even knowing it had happened. But she stayed dry all night and our first hit was first thing this morning. She also peed before her nap, so no need to switch to diapers for nap time. And the other hit was all on her own. We got home and I was putting stuff away, when I saw her go trucking into the bathroom holding her bum and saying "oh no, oh no, oh no".
She made it in time and did it all on her own.
I'll be picking up my antibiotics this afternoon. Sinusitis that he thinks is being aggrivated by allergies. I feel awful. Not to mention I'm stressed and upset about a lot of stuff, which only adds to the pot. Moonshine
, count me in on the pitty pot. All I want to do is curl up on the couch and
about poor, poor me.
: Please share what you get from the library and what you end up knitting. It is all I seem to find joy in these days.
Dr. Jen - I think what is happening with DS is all too common. I know a lot of adults who went through it - almost flunked out of college, took a year off, then went back to be straight A students. Maybe he just isn't ready... Maybe he needs some time off to play a bit between high school and college. I don't think it is anything you are doing wrong, aren't doing, etc. I think he just needs to find his way. I totally feel for your DD, and can relate to what she is going through. Having an acceptable teacher makes all of the difference. I think you are doing a great job at helping her go through this tough time. Try not to be so hard on yourself. We all think you are an amazing mother.
