Noah’s new underwear

Yesterday was kid’s eat free night at Chili’s – apparently it’s every Tuesday – so we took the kids to supper. It was definitely the cheapest we’ve eaten out as a family in a looonng time.

Afterward, Ceili Fey and I had to grab a couple of things at Target. While Ceili Fey was shopping for some new underwear – it seems she’s once again outgrowing things – Noah happened to see some Dora underwear. He immediately grabbed them and told me that he wanted them. I explained that, if he wore them, he couldn’t go potty in the underwear, that he would have to actually go to the potty. He agreed.

He proceeded to carry them through the store.

On the way home he was discussing the other underwear he wanted to get: Thomas, Mickey Mouse…. We told him that if he did a good job with the Dora underwear, we’d get him more – any kind of underwear he wanted.

He was so happy about his purchase and so excited to wear them. Even though it was bedtime once we arrived at home, I agreed to let him wear a pair for a few minutes.

Who knows? Maybe this will be the thing that works.

Review – The Little Looster

The Little Looster was sent to me to review. Unfortuately, I was unable to get any pictures because Elias – who’s newfound interest in the toilet disappeared as quickly as it appeared – won’t stay seated long enough for me to do so. It’s a good product and the principle behind it is simple: Make it easy to climb up to the toilet and work as a foot prop for a child when seated.

It has some good points and some not-so-good points to it. It is truly a great product although it is a bit cumbersome if used in a bathroom that adults also frequent. It’s super easy for a child to climb up onto the toilet by using the Little Looster. I do wish there were some grippy things on the bottom to keep it more stationary – it slid far too easily on our bathroom floor. Overall, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. This is a product that I would recommend to anyone with small children. It is currently available only from The Little Looster website, retailing for $39.99.

As previously stated, the Little Looster was sent to me for the express purpose of a review. I was not compensated monetarily in any fashion.
