I don’t know what happened, but after almost three weeks of almost no accidents, Alex suddenly regressed. Friday night he pooped in his underwear. Sat & Sun he did the same. We didn’t have any successful pooping in the potty all weekend.
Monday at daycare, he had another accident. Not only that, he asked Barb if she smelled something. When she said yes, he blamed it on Beth! So she changed Beth to find out it wasn’t Beth. It was Alex all along. Monday night I told him specifically at bedtime to try and go poopy. Nothing. Not five minutes later, he had pooped in his underwear and seemed to think it was a joke. I was really mad. I restrained myself from yelling at him, but did make it clear that mommy was not happy with him. He got no story that night, no hugs, no kisses, no “Goodnight”. I just got him dressed again and told him I was leaving because I was mad at him and he should finish his snack and go to bed. Hopefully now he realizes that it was not a joke.
Yesterday he didn’t poop at Barb’s and Eric did manage to get him to poop in the potty at bedtime. We’ll see if it gets better again, but right now I’m frustrated with him. After three good weeks, this was just too much!
