No it isn’t me! Unless you count a slight reoccurring addiction to sugary soda as one, I have not become a lush! (There is this all natural brand called Virgil’s I love right now and get through my grocery delivery service, no caffeine or preservatives or HFCS! just sugar of course) Leia has the issue. Leia is a chugger. Unless it is plain water (I have relented and added like an ounce of juice to her water just to get her to drink it) Leia takes her sippy cup with both hands and downs it like she was in a contest. Why is this a problem? She isn’t potty trained yet.
I know it isn’t a cloth diaper issue, it happened on our recent trip to NoCal too when I was using disposables. She just soaks herself pretty routinely. At least with cloth I can play around with giving her extra layers of absorbency for naps and nighttime. The worst is in the car, which of course is a big danger zone if we have to drive for any amount of time. It happened last night we were in LA traffic, going to our friends home. They live a good ways away and there was a total “peeslposion”. I had to change her in the driveway and that seat was soaked! Nothing like having to unhitch a car seat and strip the cover of of it to wash it and get it strapped back in. I want her to drink up, especially with hot weather looming, but I may have to be more strategic in when I let her tank up?
In other news, one good thing about having such a tiny house is it makes the chase a little easier. I took Leia to Park Day the other day, I felt like I couldn’t really talk to anyone, she is too little to really play but too big to stay still! I am pretty close to ready to try for Scoggins baby the second, but lately I have been thinking it will be nice if she is a bit older and doing some self play when i am pregnant, maybe a little less chasing and a little less putting everything in her mouth would be helpful during that time. It is so fun to interact with toddler Leia, but sometimes I miss that little snuggly baby wrapped in a woombie and unable to walk! I definitely miss those Mommy movies too 🙂 She is a joy though, at every stage!! I think we hit the jackpot with having her for a first baby she has overall all been pretty darn angelic 🙂
