We have had a really nice family afternoon. We all went to the Thresheree. This is a big gathering of people who are into antique tractors and old methods of farming. I think Evan enjoyed the big machines and the steam train ride. Kate however hated every min. of the train ride and loud whistles. Not that interesting of an outing for us girls but hey, we tagged along.
Kate has finally showed an interest in potty training so when we got home we put her up on her little potty seat on the big toliet and Evan on his little Baby Bjorn potty. YEAH, big girl Kate made a little pee. Of course we have to make a big deal about it. We want repeats!! Hey, figuring that we had not gotten any dirty diapers out of Evan, now must be the time. After 45 min. of sitting, peeing and scooting his little potty up and down the hall, we gave up and put on a diaper. Of course last time we did that, the little booger went down the hall and promptly pooped in his diaper. As if to say, Hah, you can't control this.
Sure enough, he dissappeared. I was busy making dinner then. I looked downstairs, we have an open stair well, just in time to see Mr. Evan take of his shorts and diaper and proceed to play in his waste. AARGH!! I snatched him up and ran and plunked his butt in the bathtub. Scott ran and grabbed the carpet scrubber etc. I turned off my stove, removed Kate from a chair at the kitchen counter and got back to the tub to give Evan one heck of a shower. After the carpet shampooer and cleanup job Scott did we got the place back under control. Well, we just called a few places about having our carpets cleaned anyhow...
Yes, I clearly remember Susanna pulling this trick at least once too. But, given that Evan can now make the sign language for poopy, does poopy in his potty and seems to know when to disappear to pull this we are not too happy with him for a while this evening.
By bedtime he is back to his charming little boy and we are happy to sing him a quick song and tuck him in for the night.
