Sorry, No HNT Here Tonight

I'll be back for HNT next week, I promise! I'm just not feeling it tonight. Don't worry about me, I am doing a bit better. Spent most of the evening curled up in MrKB's arms, which was just what I needed. :)

Check this out, though...He called the caseworker again today to find out about getting Meghan's S.S.#. She asked us AGAIN if we had her birth certificate. The answer was still NO...duh! Apparently DHS doesn't have it either (or she just doesn't want to mess with it) so now I have to go down to the Health Department tomorrow and get a copy of the birth certificate myself, and then go to the S.S. office and get Meghan a number. In other words, doing their job for them. Wish she would've told us this two weeks ago when we first called. We could've had taxes filed by now.

In other news....Destiny has been wearing "big girl panties" during the day since this past Saturday. She's doing really well, only had one minor accident on Saturday night. She was so cute when we had gone to MrKB's Aunt's house for a get-together. She kept pulling the panties up from her jeans to show anybody who'd look, and saying "Look! Like Mommy's!" LOL Only problem she's been having is when I put pull-ups on her for nap or for the night, she's been peeing in them again big time. I'm talking filling them up so full it looks like she went swimming in them or something! The whole reason I decided to try panties on her was because she was doing so well at staying dry all the time, even when sleeping. Now it's like she thinks that just because she has a pull-up on that it's alright to pee in them. I hope she gets over that real soon!

Anyway, y'all go and enjoy HNT, and I will check you out later, mmmkay?

Hey K-mummy-bear :o)

May I share some things I did with Jacob and pee training LOL

His last main drink was with dinner and he'd maybe have a very small one between dinner and bedtime.

I got him up and put him on the loo 2 - 3 hours after he went to sleep and then again before I went to bed. He'd be have asleep but I didn't care .. LOL

The reward system was good .. everytime he woke up dry he'd get a sticker and when he had so many he'd get a special treat and I made a big fuss over him .. I also told him it was ok when he had an 'accident' coz I didnt want him being scared of what I would say if he pee'd his pants.

I still get the occasional wet bed .. but hey .. these things happen ..

Keep smiling lovie!! :o)

Bexxie xox

My little man is almost seven and to this day if I don't make him potty before laying down he will have an accident. It's like he sleeps so sound that this bodily function is not enough to wake him.
Good Luck!!

I used to flash my lacy big girl panties by lifting my dress over my head... and I think that was only the other day. haha

MamaKBear said...

Bexxie: You gave me a giggle this morning, and I needed that! I've been meaning to get a sticker chart for reward incentive for her, but haven't yet.

Flygirl: I'll be by in a bit to see what you came up with. I'll be back next week!

Bekah: I do have her go potty before she takes a nap or goes to bed for the night. Before panties she was even dry after sleeping (not all the time, but often)..dunno what's got into her.

Randi: LMAO! That cracks me up! :)

With Nati I had to go full panties, no pull-ups at all b/c she would pee in them if she could. If it was gonna go down her legs or on her bed she'd not pee, but if she had on a pull-up she would. I put panties on her and then plastic ones over them so it held the pee against her and felt nasty but wasn't everywhere, she stopped very fast. Pull-ups pull it away from their body and they don't feel nasty so they don't stop. You might try that. My SIL is going through the same thing with her girls, she switches back and forth and is struggling.

MrsCoach2U said...

I hope that didn't sound like I know it all! I mean I think I do, but there are those who will disagree! I know, imagine that!!!! Just thought you might want to try it, sometimes it's a mental game with kids.

MamaKBear said...

Kali: Sometimes just being held is the best thing, ain't it?

Chris: (((((Chris)))))) She's got her moments, that's for sure! :)

Real Kidd: Thank you sweetie!

Roxi: Love you too, and I sure hope so! LOL

MrsCoach: I'd actually thought about doing that already. The pull-ups are the Feel and Learn ones, and they're supposed to be able to tell when they are wet, but I'm guessing it doesn't do the job very well. May go ahead and try panties all the time, just not sure about that yet. And no, it didn't seem like you knew it all! (What?!?! You don't???!!)

Far said...

LOL that is too cute "like mommys" awe...

Wenchy said...

Thinking of you.............

SignGurl said...

Hey MamaK! I think (like everyone else) that the Pull ups don't work. Try putting a blue pad (like the ones from the hospital) under her. That way if she wets it won't soak the bed but will soak her so. Worked for both of my girls.

I'm glad you are feeling better. I'm sending more {{{{hugs}}}}

Sorry about your problems with DHS. It really shouldn't be that hard. Good luck on getting your taxes filed.

Enjoy your week of from HNT. I wish you could take a week off from everything else that has been going on. You really deserve it.
