Ingenuity of the Innocent

So our children have all had a difficult time with waking up "dry" in the morning and so we have set up a reward system. Okay we totally bribe them, so my 3 year old 'A' still sleeps in a diaper at night, but if she wakes up dry she gets a treat. So the other morning she comes in and says "Mommy! I woke up dry! Can I get my treat?" Of course I praise her dramatically and when I give her a hug I feel she's wet. (sometimes she leaks out of her diaper) So I asked her how her diaper is dry, but her clothes are wet. Turns out the little sneak got up early, changed herself into a dry diaper to try and get a treat! Looks like we need a new system don't you think?


  1. We definitely don't give them enough credit for their creative thinking at that age! Love it!

  2. LOL! That is pretty amaizing for a 3 year old. I think that putting a diaper on one's self would be pretty hard.

    And look! I'm following your blog now! Happy? :)

  3. I always knew she was a smart little cookie!!
