Last night was the THIRD night in a row that playing kid-friendly music at a louder volume helped Jet go to sleep on his own. In fact, it was the best one yet.
We walked in his room together (usually, I have to carry him in because he won’t go on his own). He climbed in his bed all by himself and arranged his pillow. I covered him up, then crossed the room to close the closet door (thankyouverymuch, Monsters, Inc.) and turn on the music. I crossed back to his bed, planning to kiss him goodnight and try to walk out of the room, but fully expecting him to cry and ask me to pat him. However, after the kiss, I told him that I was going to play cards with Daddy, and he said, “Okay.” Then he rolled over and closed his eyes!
I went into the kitchen to play cribbage with Knight, and he never came out of his room. It was fantastic!
The Adventures of the Big Boy Underwears went fairly well yesterday, too. He pooped in the first pair about an hour after I put them on him, but then only had one other wet accident later in the evening. He even survived a 1 1/2 hour trip to the park to feed the ducks and throw rocks in the water without a mess. Yay!
This morning, however, has been another story. Yesterday, I decided not to go to church this morning because I’m positively drowning in laundry and it’s the last week of school. Basically, if I can get my house in order this weekend, this next week will be a breeze for me at school because I won’t be stressing about how messy the house is. Plus, it’s youth Sunday, which is an awesome thing, but I just don’t feel terribly guilty for choosing not to go today since our pastor isn’t speaking.
Anyway, Jet has had three accidents this morning. I haven’t changed anything about the way I’m reminding him every 20-30 minutes. Maybe the novelty has worn off or something. One time, he managed to get his leg all wet but his underwear remained dry. I’m oddly curious about this. (TMI? Sorry.)
