Then we started again in September, after our foster children had both moved to other places. Monkey did really well with underpants, he even pooped in the potty several times. Late that month he got sick and had diarrhea for over a month straight, I wish I was exaggerating. I did not want to deal with THAT mess, so he wore diapers. Once he was healthy again it was really easy for me to be lazy and only put him in his underpants when I felt like dealing with the mess.
Now in January I got really serious, my boy is 2 1/2 and I think he looks silly in a diaper. He wears underpants every day, and he wants to wear them when he's sleeping! I sometimes let him, but I still don't like the mess, so he usually sleeps in a diaper. After his ridiculous run of diarrhea, he did not want to poop in the potty any more. Oh that made me crazy.
Suddenly, this week - my boy sat on the potty at bed time and pooped. He looked up and grinned at us and told us "Na-ee make poop!"
Hooray for the magic of toddler underpants!!!
