After two weeks of very dry pull-ups, I decided it was time to try 'big girl underwears". I followed the advice of my friend Susan and started on a Monday. With her backpack full of extra cloths and her pink princess underwears on Grace set off to school.
I was wondering how her morning would go. Her teachers were aware of the plan and were ready to bring her to the bathroom every 30 minutes. When I picked her up I was very surprised to see her in the same outfit. No accidents! They said she went to the bathroom when they brought her and was proud of her big girl underwear. The next test was her afternoon preschool. They too knew about the plan and were on board. Once a again I was surprised to see her in the same cloths. No accidents!
The real test was home time. I must admit I am not very diligent at putting her on the potty every 30 minutes. Some how life seems to get in the way and 60 or 90 minutes have gone by. Neadless to say we have had a few accidents at home. And perhaps one at school (though Grace claims her pants were wet beacuse she went down the slide that was wet...) Bedtime and night time we still use pull-ups, but Grace is loving her pink big girl underwear and so is her mom!
