So my last blog I said that i would humor the school transportation people and put a diaper on Lily. But today I had forgotten to put one on her in the am. Maybe it was on purpose i forgot! Because i am so mad about the situation! And I really think Lily is peeing out of frustration for her being tied into the chair for so long with a miserable bus aide not talking to her. How do I know this you ask............because the aide doesn't speak english! Not to mention the loud spanish radio program that is on for the hour and half bus ride. so maybe it wasn't on an accident I forgot! And for my thinking she didn't need the diaper she had an accident! not only on the way to school but on the way home! Needless to say the aide was extremely mad! though she always looks mad when she pulls up to our house.
This situation made them so mad that when they got back to the transportation center they complained about Lily and her urinating on the bus. I told the lady I was sorry that I think it is because they don't like her and she is not happy on the bus. and that is why she wets her pants. The lady said well they are sitting right here in her office and they say Lily will look at her, the aide, and laugh and then pee. The conversation was dead after that,. I was told that for Lily to continue with school transportation she would need to wear a diaper!
So again, I am sooooo frustrated about transportation. I am so frustrated with potty training!

I am going to try this challenge. I know as a mother to a Down Syndrome daughter, I am always looking to read about other moms day with there DS child. Its always so wonderful to read about the same joy or frustrations I, myself experience with Lily. Some days are so challenging and stressful that i can't imagine anyone else experiencing the same thing. and than I read a blog and there it is, the same challenges. Gives me hope that things will be better because they are actually normal!
I still have the same challenges with Lily. Potty training, behavior, her rejecting me, trying to reason with her, getting her off to school, etc. I thought Lily was potty trained except at night. But this school year she started wetting her pants on the way to school and on the way home. So after a week of this we were asked to put her in a diaper for the bus ride. In a way i thought this is exactly what she wanted to be in a diaper again. She is lazy at times and wants to be a baby and wear a diaper. Which, I have always told her no to! So now she gets to wear her diaper, at age 9, and be the baby she loves to be. I feel like this is definetly taking the 2 steps back again from potty training. I had decided since there was so much friction going on between her and the bus driver and bus aide, I would just please them by putting her in a diaper. But in a month i will not allow this anymore. She is a big girl!
