Pee pee update, boo boo bottoms

I have finally gotten pass the pee pee problem with my middle daughter. (Knock on wood ... hope I am not speaking too quickly.) As you'll remember from POed about pee pee little Miss Amareah was having accidents on a regular basis. Now, all of a sudden, the accidents have stopped.

And I heaved a sigh of release.

Seems as if I heaved too soon: Over the past week my second and my fourth children started boo booing all day long. They don't have diarrhea, but their stools are loose and almost everything that goes in comes back out.

I have inquired in all kinds of ways of my 5-year-old son Andre about what is going on in his stomach. One of our conversations went like this:

M: Does your stomach hurt?
A: No.
M: Does it hurt right before you have to boo boo?
A: Yes.
M: But it doesn't hurt all the time?
A: No.

Hmmm? That didn't tell me anything, did it?

Today alone, beginning at midnight (Yes! Midnight! And no, I haven't had much sleep.) and ending around noon today (they're napping now!) they've boo booed about 10 times.

I must admit if I have to look at one more butt and one more pile of (brace yourself it's about to get gross) pile of mucusy, smelly defecation, I will turn in my mother card. Okay, I'm being a little dramatic.

This has gone so far that Andre has had a couple of accidents in his clothes because he's waiting until the last minute to go and ... well, you know the rest. Luckily, it was just a little bit, but I would prefer not to have to hand wash any little drawers with any little yucky stuff in it.

So, I've progressed from pee pee problems to boo boo episodes. Actually I wouldn't call that progress, but you know what I mean. Hopefully my next post about bathroom habits will include a success story about potty training my youngest.

Hey, I can hope,can't I?
