When he returned to school the following week, we had prepped him for going potty at school, put on his favorite new undies, and were ready. However, on Monday, he would hold it until he could hold it no longer and wet himself. He was not having pottying at school.
On Tuesday, I got a call that Jude had 2 messy pants. :( When I picked him up, I myself was not feeling well and called Justin to meet us at home soon because we were both feeling pretty yucky. By 6 pm, I was running a fever and Jude was throwing up. The next 4 days we were consumed with messy pants, throw up, and chills. Thankfully, our bug left us, but Jude's fear of extreme stomach pain and stinging in his bottom did not and he began to refuse to go potty because he said it "hurt". Since then, we've given him a few weeks off to calm his fears and feel comfortable again. We're going to attempt the potty thing again before summer.
In April, we also traveled to Eastern Washington to see where Justin has been doing research and it was a nice weekend get away. Jude LOVED seeing all the animals and he is now an expert in knowing the different between cow poop and moose poop, thanks to the knowledge of his Daddy. I took my camera with me but it never left my duffel bag. :(
