Bedtime has become a bit of a nightmare around here in the last couple of weeks. Brown Bear in particular hates to lie down and have her clothes and diaper removed. She squirms about so much that it is really tough to get her ready for her bath. And then post-tub…
Holy crapola. She has a bit of a diaper rash now and so we have to make sure she has some kind of barrier cream put on her junkyard. We use Penaten cream because that is what their mother tells me to use.
Anyway, you smear this cream all around the junkyard as she is screaming and squirming about and trying to push her hands down into her…well where the cream is. She then gets the cream on her hands, and then on her face, in her mouth…and then the screams really start.
This evening I got so frustrated I had to step away and let Wifey take over the re-dressing post-tub. Has anybody else seen this behaviour from their little ones? She is just about eleven months old. Her twin sister Blonde Bear does the same sort of thing but not nearly to the extent that Story does.
What words of advice can you offer me, us? Please comment! I’m losing it over this squirmy, wormy kidlet. Ack.
