playing nice in the world's sandbox

Ok. I admit it. I once swore vehemently that I would not use 'pull-ups'. "What is the purpose of those?", I asked myself. Well, now I know. When you are potty-training a strong-willed little boy I have a little advice;

a. buy the pull-ups. They work better than a diaper in the transitional event that the wee one is not quite ready for an outing with nothing on their bum. Diapers just never go back on the same way after you've velcroed the little tabs on. Besides, you can only bring so many under-pants, and pants. I thought the idea of a potty-training toddler was that you finally eliminated the "Diaper Bag".

b. the pull-ups are not quite up to snuff when it comes to overnight usage. Use a regular diaper.

c. nod your head and smile patronizingly at me, when I tell you I'm seriously considering using dishtowels at this point. With safety pins.

p.s. since when did the words 'safety' and 'pins' go together, that's like pin.
