Back into pullups, that is. Friday was great. Everyone had a great day. Avtalyon slept wonderfully Thursday night, thanks to his hib and polio shots that morning; Barak and Iyyar were delightful and charming, and Barak ended the day with clean dry underwear.
Shabbos was great too. But the clean dry underwear turned into gross poopy underwear sometime around 4 pm.
Today, back into pullups. Which were, if not dry, at least not poopy by bathtime. But then, when Barak and Iyyar were both totally naked and about to take baths, and MHH had Iyyar in the tub and Barak was still jumping around his room pre-bath, we heard a horribly familiar wail.
Not just him. But the bed, the sheet, and the wall.
What do you say to that? You know, after bleaching the heck out of half the room?
Is he just holding it all day long until he can't hold it any more? I really really don't think he pooped on the floor on purpose. In fact I'm sure he didn't, because he was hysterical. But I also know that a mere fifteen minutes earlier, he'd told me he didn't need to poop.
Barak is four. He used to be toilet trained. He was toilet trained for a pretty long time. Now he is totally not toilet trained at all. I really don't know what to do here, other than put him back in pullups for the rest of the week per Grandma E and also for my own sanity--I need to not be thinking about Barak's bathroom needs all day long.
I do remember reading somewhere about growth spurts causing toilet regression, and Barak just outgrew all his 4T clothes in the course of about two weeks. I'm really really hoping that that's it, and that it will pass. Soon.
Because I'm almost out of bleach.
