An Odd Interest

The Baby is like a little puppy dog. She crawls around carrying things in her mouth. Toys aren't so strange, but her favorite thing to carry around is her big sister's underwear.

Since The Middle Girl is only 6 months potty trained and likes to change her clothes (all her clothes) frequently, I keep a lot of her clean underwear in a basket under the changing table where her diapers used to be. The Baby has discovered this stash and I find her frequently crawling into my bedroom, standing on her tiptoes and snagging a pair of underwear.

She stuffs a corner in her mouth and crawls off babbling to herself -- pleased as punch with her prize. But why? We have lots of other cloth stuff around and lots of normal baby toys within reach. Why underwear? I have no idea.

The Baby sure thinks underwear is nifty. I wonder if this will help with early potty training?


That is so funny. Photo please!!!

When Daughter was potty-training age, the biggest incentive was Big Girl Panties. She absolutely longed to be able to wear them. And when the time came for her to try wearing them to bed at night, we told her that she just had to make up her mind not to have any accidents. The only accident that child ever had was on an airplane when she was too scared of the toilet to sit on it.
