Number of nappies used: zero!
Number of accidents: 1. I completely forgot she wasn’t wearing a nappy until I heard “wee wee, wee wee!!!” in the middle of Tesco this morning.
Number of changes of trousers: 1. See above.
Number of panic moments: 2. In the middle of Tesco and when she fell asleep in the car seat with no nappy. Fortunately she woke 1.5 hours later dry!
We had a lovely and mostly dry day (I’m talking about the weather now!) Visited Dean Castle Country Park which I would highly recommend for anyone, especially with children as you can have a short woodland walk whilst spotting deer, owls, a river, bridge and some little waterfalls. By the castle there’s also a small farm with pigs, chickens, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, doves and other birds as well as a duck pond. There are 2 playgrounds, 1 for older children with a zip wire and climbing frames and one for the younger ones.
The visitor centre offered a reasonably priced lunch box for kids and a wide variety of sandwiches, wraps, paninis, toasties and jacket potatoes.
The tiddler then napped (nappy free!) in the car en route to Dundonald Castle. In fact we all slept for an hour and a half in the car park when we arrived then headed into the café for a drink. The path up to the castle was quite steep but the views across to the sea and the Isle of Arran were beautiful. The castle itself was tiny so we didn’t fork out the entrance fee and headed back down to the playground.
Although she only had the one accident all day, each potty run was lead by us as she doesn’t always seem to be able to identify when she needs to go unless we’re in the house. We tended to time potty runs roughly 15mins after drinking, before car journeys and straight after her nap. This seems to be working at the moment and hopefully we’ll progress to her being able to tell us when she needs to go.
