Kaden - what else can I say?


Our son Kaden is a sweet boy. Sometimes I have to repeat this phrase to myself multiple times throughout the day. Only on days like yesterday. My kids wake up at 6:45 sharp no matter what time they go to bed. So 6:45 rolls around and Danny is trying to get out the door to leave for a 48 (hour shift) and I am trying to get three children their breakfast so they will stop saying that they are starving - I mean it's been a whole 2 seconds since they woke up...pick up the pace mom. Anyway, we are all running around like crazy heads and all of the sudden we hear fluid hitting the hardwood floor. I think to myself - "self, Brinlee is in diapers and both of the boys have been potty trained forever..." But I turn to find my sweet son wetting on the floor. Why you ask? I don't know, I don't even think Kaden knows. Lately he has been waiting to long to go in to the bathroom and sometimes he barley makes it so I got him all cleaned up and explained as lovingly as I could on a morning like this that we don't wet our pants. Later in the afternoon Aunt Marge (Ciera) came over and she watched the kids while Brin and I went to go get our haircut. Right before I left, I was telling kaden that if he needs to go to the bathroom - he needs to not wait but go right away to which he responds " no mom I'll just wear my peed pants" Needless to say Marge threw him in the tub and Brin and I left. Right after I got to my moms and sat in the chair Marge called and told me that Kaden just "messed" in the tub! SERIOUSLY! I'm not wanting to give you all of the gory details suffice to say - he made a huge mess. When I got home, I fed him and put him right to bed, letting him know that I was "sooooo unhappy with his choices today!" Then when I went in later to put Parker to bed, I opened the door and the room was so stinky! He had messed his pants...................YOU CAN'T EVEN MAKE THIS STUFF UP! Kaden got to take a cold shower. go ahead and call CPS I don't even care - it was so disgusting! I have decided that his behavior is because I put him back in pullups at night because he wasn't able to stay dry and I was washing sheets daily. But ever since then he wants to be a baby so we've gone back to no pullups and me taking him potty at 1am or whenever I go to bed. Oh the joys. And even after the nightmare of a day I had with him, he still is one of my three favorite kids in the whole world. He is the funniest guy and the spaces in his teeth make me smile (which them shows the spaces in my teeth) He loves to snuggle and he is a good big brother. Now if we could just get him to go to the bathroom correctly!

Arrgh! I hate that! We are going through that with Summer right now. Our punishment of choice is the "cold bath" so CPS can call on us both or something. The last time we were at Lee and Carrie's I don't know how but Summer had "stinky pants" in the den, and it was all over the floor. BUT, her underwear and pants were still on. Did she take it out with her hands? I don't wanna know. OHHHH kids are fantastic!

Did the cold shower work? I did that with Braden and then the next day when he had an accident I found him upstairs in the bath tub (water overflowing) and Tanner fully clothed taking a bath as well. When I asked why he did that, he said he wanted a warm bath....

I love the cold bath trick too, although I have to tell you that your story made my day! :) That's just plain naughty, and I have to ask myself "where does that naughtiness come from?"

It is so hard when they regress. Sometimes that happens rights before they have a huge growth spurt. Bella regressed last year and I thought that I was going to die throwing up:)
