Under Lock and Key

Graham is a difficult child. Well, not really but he does have some extremely annoying habits. His most common issue is stripping his bed, stripping himself, and then urinating all over his mattress, bedding, and yes even the carpet. How often? Every time we put him in his crib; naps, bedtime every time.

Out of frustration and a lack of laundry detergent I decided to get creative. We've tried just about everything. He's learned to get out of everything short of a straight jacket. So last night I put him in a zip up P.J. outfit and then took a safety pin and pinned the zipper to the fabric so it can't be unzipped.

SUCCESS!! He woke up this morning fully dressed with diaper intact. YAY! I really just want to potty train him but he's just not ready. Even if I were able to train him during the day he wakes up every morning with either a full diaper or a fully soaked bed. This will have to do in the mean time.
