Pajamas with feet just aren’t practical when you’re potty training.
Back in May, I wrote about how I was switching Katie over to nightgowns and two-piece pajamas to make potty training easier during the evening hours and in the middle of the night.
Brilliant idea, right?
Not so much.
At least, not when you have a houdini child that decides she prefers to sleep without a stitch of clothing.
Especially if she’s still not completely night-trained.
Especially if she decides that getting up, relieving herself on your just-shampooed carpet and then smearing poo all over the room and herself is her most brilliant idea yet.
So we switched back to pajamas…zippered ones with feet, so she couldn’t escape.
When she figured out how to un-zip those pajamas and escape to again wreck havoc, (this time dumping the tub of her pretty shoes out onto her special pile and grinding it all into the carpet,) Papa decided to try putting her zippered pajamas on backwards, so she couldn’t reach the zipper.
So far, this has worked, but now I’m having to re-stock her pajama options. I got a two different cute Carter’s pajamas at our local Costco, but I’m looking online now for something Christmas-y. I found a couple cute options but I keeping finding things I want for me, including a some cozy winter pajamas from ellos nightwear.
We’ve been accident-free for a few weeks now with the backwards pajamas scheme…hoping she doesn’t figure out how to get around that one.
I feel like I’ve spent enough time scrubbing brown stains out of my carpets, thankyouverymuch. >_<
