I quit!

Hannah figured out how to get out of her zippered backward pajamas. They have a zipper and a snap at the top? How is that possible?



I had heard of children like her, but I have never seen one up close and personal like.

How can I do parenthood four times and never, see ever what I am witnessing now on a daily basis?

Overwhelmed by child who wants to sleep naked but isn't potty trained.

Gonna try a safety pin first.


Bring on the duct tape.

I am sure you have already thought of this. 😁
I know from what you have said she is super smart.
Bribery...I mean... positive reinforcement if she leaves the PJ's on?

Oh, I have one of those kids! He is still the most exhausting of my 4 kids, even at age 5. He is so much fun though! I am pretty sure unless someone has a kids like this they don't quite grasp how challenging it is. They are going to do amazing things someday!

I honestly think, as smart as she is, she isn't quite able to grasp a bribery for a long time later. If I bribe her immediately, she gets it. But you know, it might be worth a try.

I can say my friend used a couple of jelly beans that were in a cup that was visible but on a high shelf as a "bribe" to keep her son in bed and it worked. He wasn't one who stripped down though so I don't know if that would work and as busy as she is she might try to find a way to get to them.

Oh Wendi, I can't even imagine! I would try bribery too though. My daughter does not respond well to having things taken away, but if she works toward a goal of something she does great. I know Hannah is only 2, but I bet she would get it

Actually, I really, really thought she was too young for delayed bribery. But I've been using a jelly bean and it is actually working the last two days. FINGERS CROSSED!
