I know all you really care about are the pictures of my adorable little girls, but I'm in need of some serious mommy help. My girls will be 3 years old in a matter of weeks (3 to be exact) and they are currently potty trained during the day. The diapers come off first thing in the morning and they both use the restroom all day long. Of course diapers are used whenever they go to sleep because they can't seem to hold it...especially Allison.
I have tried putting their learning potty in their room, but it ends up on the floor! I've tried making them use the restroom before I lay them down...doesn't work. I even left their bedroom door open one day so they could use their own bathroom toilet...NOT a very good idea. haha.
The only thing that seems to work is putting a diaper on them...which I am okay with. However, this brings up my next problem. They won't leave their diapers on. I have even resulted in duck taping the diapers onto them. The tape goes all the way around their waist and I even tuck the end of the tape into the diaper so they can't pull it off. Well, maybe it's because there are two of them and they work together, but they have figured out my little trick. I am out of ideas. There is nothing I can do to keep their diapers on.
What happens when they get their diapers off?? They go on the floor of course! DISGUSTING does not even begin to describe it. I can't tell you the number of times I have gotten on my hands and knees to pick up their 'business' or how many bottles of febreeze have been used in their room. It's horrible!
How do I handle the situation? I've done everything...talking to them and trying to explain what they should and shouldn't do, time out, spanking and yelling, rewarding them when the diapers stay on, and in very rare occasions, I made them help me clean it. Some days are better than others and no, I don't always handle the situation in the best way. I'm desperate!
Does everyone honestly go through this much trouble, or am I the only lonely mommy that deals with it? Is it a twin thing? A girl thing? A 2 year old thing? HELP!
I'm open to just about anything.
I am at a loss as to what I should do now.
