I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Wouldn't you rather have a nice dry behind instead of a soaking wet one? Diaper changes with Aaron are becoming increasingly difficult. Getting the diaper off is pretty easy because I just take it off when he's standing at the gate to our room. To get the next one ON, I need to have him lying down. However, each time I put him down, he just flips over and is on all fours in half a second. If you've seen a dog spring up from the lying down position to standing on all fours.....that's what he looks like. In the next half second, he's grinning at me and scuttling away. Yes, I know he's just playing with me but the game usually ends in tears because I end up having to hold him down firmly which obviously isn't very fun.
Yesterday, I finally decided to try some 'angry voices'. They didn't work all that well, and I think I got too carried away and communicated too much anger. He gave it back to me by waking up every single hour last night. I couldn't get angry at him
then because it appeared that he was hurt and kept clinging to me as if I would leave him. Same thing happened all day today.....wouldn't let me out of his sight.
I'll have to think of some other way to get these diaper changes under control. Its also started me wondering about the sort of disciplining approach I should take. He is really starting to test his boundaries and our limits now.
OMG! I hope this isn't the start of my grey hairs....
