Daddy Talk

I'm sure my youngest will forgive me for talking about her toilet habits.

Didi still wets the bed at night. Last summer, we tried to train her, but it was a complete disaster. You can cope with changing the bed once or twice in a week, but twice a night? You run out of sheets, towels, underwear, and pyjama bottoms. And Pampers Care Mats, which are a boon.

So we gave up, and tried her in these new fangled Pampers that instead of feeling totally dry, give the child a "wet sensation", which is supposed to be part of training her to wake up and notice.

They seemed to be working, and he had several dry nights, but then we started to suspect she was getting up in the morning and peeing in the nappy instead of bothering to go to the toilet. You know how it is when you're young: no time for things like that.

So I decided we ought to try again, on the theory that she was dry through the night.

The result? Complete disaster, and we've run out of sheets, towels, underwear, pyjama bottoms, trousers, care mats, patience.

Aaaaaggggh! We never had this trouble with the first one! I'm completely at a loss.
