Jack, You've Been Duly Served

After three kids, I have finally mastered the art of buying diapers for a bargain price. And as you can see from the picture, I tend to be an overachiever. But I do have a bit of a dilemma.

As much as I'm enjoying Jack and going through all these stages and phases one last time, I'm not going to be sorry to say goodbye to diapers. He's 2 1/2, shows not the slightest interest in potty training, and cannot be coaxed by the Cars underpants I've bought. So I continue to stockpile.

Today I came home with two more packs and I realized that Jack might not be the only one who is ambivalent toward potty training. So being the older and wiser of the two, I'm making it known that when this stack runs out, we will begin. By my calculations I have approximately 496 diapers left and if we use about 5 per day, it looks like we've got about 99 days before Pee-day commences.

(Of course, if any really great deals come up....)

Ha! I am SO glad I am not the only one with a toddler that isn't interested! I am afraid to stock pile, because I always hold onto this delusional 'Maybe this will be the last pack' mentality. Maybe if I start to stuff the closet full, that will be when she decides to use the potty!

YAY! Sorry to delight in your misfortune, but I was thinking EVERYONE's kid was potty-trained. I went through this exact delimma exactly 4 years ago. Noah was not interested, in fact he flat out refused. He started preschool in diapers and was 3 1/2 before he finally potty-trained. Everyone told me boys were harder... so I was optimistic this time with a girl that it would be easy and she would be one of those awesome over-achieving toddlers that potty trains at 18 months because she wanted to be like her big brother. Nope. Same story, different child. She flat refuses to sit on the potty and when I put her in princess underwear hoping she would wet them, get uncomfortable and start to "get it"... she just peed in them and didn't tell me. She walked around in wet underwear with wet pants and socks and didn't say a word. **SIGH**

We're there, too... I buy in bulk from Sam's -- and I keep hoping one day I'll only have to lug one of those big boxes home, lol! :)
