I’ll be honest: I am in no hurry to potty train Briar.
I know a lot of people cringe at the idea of having two babies in diapers but for some bizarre reason it doesn’t bother me (joke’s on me?). Sure, diapers are definitely an expense, however, the idea of constantly having to run to the bathroom with a toddler or clean up inevitable accidents on the floor…well, let’s just say I am more than happy to let her make the call as to when she is ready.
This is especially true as the weather heats up and we spend more and more time outside, either swimming or lounging in the kiddie pool or splashing around at the water table. The last thing I want to do is repeatedly shuttle her in and out of the house in her wet bathing suit to use the bathroom. I mean, I barely want to do that for myself! (Is there any grosser feeling than peeling off a wet bathing suit? Blah!)
Because of this, I’ve set up a little changing area for Briar on the patio, complete with Munchkin’s new STEP diaper pail and a basket full of swim diapers, wipes, sunscreen, towels, and a few other necessities for outdoor water play.
I think my favorite part about the STEP diaper pail (aside from the fact that it eliminates odor better than any other trash system we’ve used!) is how sleek this thing looks! Baby products tend to be hit-or-miss when it comes to aesthetics, so to be able to reap the benefits of form AND function in one product? Well, consider me sold.
This little watermelon is allllll about outdoor livin.’ If she could stay in that kiddie pool forever, she would be one happy camper. The only way to get her out of the water with minimal tears is to promise her that we will immediately put her in the bathtub…girl knows what she wants!
I’m pretty sure this is exactly what the coming summer is going to look like: my naturally tan baby living it up in the sunshine and her pale mama hiding under several layers of sunscreen and a giant hat (ha!).
If your babe is currently in the diaper stage of life, you can purchase the Munchkin STEP diaper pail at your local Target. And best of all, for every pail purchased, Munchkin will plant a tree! Win win.
