clothing issue :)

First things first - Happy Birthday to my beautiful niece Kathryn who turned 18 today!!!


Now onto serious things:

This is how I found Ms V. after nap yesterday:


Here are her clothes in a pile on her bed, usually she throws them across the room:


This is what she woke up in - her pj bottoms. She couldn't get her top on :)

She stripped off her clothes, climbed out of bed, opened up her dresser drawer and pulled out her favorite pj's :) :)

She has decided that sleeping is for being naked. No matter what she wears when she goes down she takes it off. We haven't put a diaper on at naptime for a long time, but she still strips to skin. At bedtime she takes her pj's off, whips her diaper off and we usually find her with just her pj top on. I end up going up after an hour of sleep and re-dressing her. Two nights ago we put duct tape on her diaper so she could not get it off. That really pi**ed her off, but she could not get it off. When I went up to check on her she had only her diaper on. Last night we let her pick out her pj's and decided to just go without a diaper at all. We put the plastic sleeve over her mattress and a towel and layers under her sheets. Last night was the first night in weeks that she kept her pj's on!!!!
Then today's nap she wanted pj's and I told her they were for nighttime. When Dan went up to get her up she was naked with her clothes on the floor.
So I guess maybe we need to put her in pj's for nap too??
I guess we will see how it goes tonight and see if she keeps her pj's on.
If that works I hope we can convince her that all pj's are good and not just the DORA ones!!!!
