Potty fun, or not
My poor baby caught a cold Thursday and has been miserable. I don't mind saying I've coped pretty well with the irritability and the aversion to taking medicine. I even kept calm when she did what she did today. I put her down for her midday sleep, then she took her nappy off and had diarrhea through the cot and, somehow, on the floor. Yep, it happens with toddlers, yep, she is sick. But this is not the first time we've had midday baths and sheet washing sessions because the damn nappy doesn't stay on. Even Granny has had a turn in dealing with this at her place. So that's why I think I've done well to get the hot soapy water and mop bucket out with patience.
I was less controlled when 10 minutes after being returned to a freshly scrubbed bed with clean sheets my little angel took her nappy off again. Luckily I got a new one on in time but she was told to put that head down and to stay quiet because I wouldn't be coming back till she had a rest! Of course she then needed a drink which I gave in to and then called for other things but eventually fell asleep. Sigh, been so busy I've only had one cuppy tea today!
*PS. I had been out on Friday to stock up on some all in ones with snaps at the crutch, if these don't work I'll have to try a modified straight jacked for her bum. : )
* PSS. Very soon I'll stop procrastinating and will have some sewing to write about.
