Long, long ago in a completely different timewarp, my babies wore cloth diapers with rubber pants on top to keep the leaks to a minimum....there was no such thing as velcro. We used diaper pins which were big safety pins with colored heads. We ran the sharp end through our hair so they would go through the cloth easier. When they started to potty train, they wore really thick under pants and at night we put the rubber pants on over the really thick under pants. That's just the way it was. We never dreamed of disposable anything. You guys have it a lot easier!!!!!
Once a month, DH and I work in our church nursery during the Sunday School hour. We have the sweetest children and they ALL love Mr. Russell! They could care less about me. He is kind of like the Pied Piper.
There is a cute set of twin girls who are 2 and in pull ups for potty training. They aren't identical, but for the life of me, I can't tell them apart, so when they come in I say one of their names and the one that looks up I figure is that twin! I know, I'm brilliant! By the way, that has NOTHING to do with this story, just sort of FYI.
I asked today if they needed to go potty and both wanted to go, so off we went. They both accomplished their task with pride. L's pull up was wet and I looked in her bag and could only see diapers. She was NOT having that, she decided she would just stay put on the potty if she couldn't have a pull up.....oh, what was I to do? Mr. Russell solved the problem by taking a closer look in their diaper bag and coming up triumphantly with a pull up which I promptly helped L put on along with her bloomers and out into the nursery we went to continue playing.
Our shift was over and we proceeded along to "big" church. After the service was over and we were on our way out, the twins dad came up and said did you know you put a swimmie on L instead of a pull up, to which I replied "a swim what?"
Swimmies hold some things, but liquid isn't one of them.......during the church service L had to go again and went......in her swimmie. It doesn't hold water. Oops!
We were informed we will be participating in a tutorial on the difference between pull ups and swimmies! Who KNEW!?
