Again about the pee

I was about to post some pictures of the kids, but I then realized that I don’t really have anything current of Renée. Why? Ah, yes, could it be because she is never wearing any pants? That must be it. For the past three months, Renée has pretty much refused clothing. We compromise with forcing her to wear a shirt, and sometimes a jacket or sweater since it has been so cold. She doesn’t really seem to care about the cold. Pants are for wimps.

It actually all started when we were trying AGAIN to get Joseph to use the toilet. While he was telling us that his pee “doesn’t work on the potty; it only works on the carpet,” Renée took one look at the little potty and all the m&m bribes that we were offering Joseph and decided that she’d give it a go. She was sixteen months old, so we weren’t even trying with her. But I guess that’s the competitiveness between siblings. Well, that or the love of forbidden candy. Either way, she gets the idea (at least at home during the day). And as for Joseph, we’re just hoping that he’ll be out of diapers before he turns four so we can send him to preschool. At any rate, I’ll force her to get dressed soon so I can take a few pictures.

Too cute! How do you talk her into wearing pants for playgroup? And don't fret, Joseph will get the hang of it too, in his own time!
See you Wednesday!

The dreaded clothing issue, good luck with that :) Joseph will start when he is good and ready and it will have nothing to do with when you are good and ready!
Have Fun!
