A New Use for Duct Tape

Elijah has found out that he is knowledgeable on how to remove his clothes and his diaper. About two weeks ago I went up and opened the door to Elijah's room to find him looking out his window with NO clothes/diaper on. So we dressed him and went on our merry way telling him that we do not take our clothes/diaper off. The next day he did the same thing. After being disciplined, I decided that I would put him in a one piece outfit for bedtime and for nap time.

Well yesterday he figured out how to get out of overalls. He was standing in his room with no clothes/diaper on. So today I put him in a one piece outfit for nap time. Elijah figured out how to undress himself. Every time I ask him what happened and he shrugs his shoulders and repeats "what happened" but the way he says it is cute.

So I told Noel that we were going to give him something that he could not get out of. Tonight we used Duct tape to secure his diaper. We will see if tomorrow morning he is standing in his room with no clothes/diaper on. If that is the case then I will be taking suggestions.

Of course we took a picture. I like this one because you see the Duct tape and Elijah is holding the Duct tape like he did it to himself. Enjoy our stresses and resolutions.

Clicked over from your comment at Rocks in My Dryer. We have 5 kids, spaced a little further apart than yours: our oldest is 17 and the youngest is 3 months!

Our 2nd born (now 12), we called The Diaper Genie, since she could get out of ANY outfit/diaper combo in record time. We started putting her diapers on backwards (with the tapes in the back. No problemo! Diaper Genie figured that one out within the hour! Next solution? Duct tape! You know what? It worked! Perhaps not coincidentally, she was our earliest potty trainer.

You have a great blog and ohmystars! the Cutie-Pie-Factor in your house is OFF the charts!
