But it does pose a bit of an issue if we are out and about and don't have a change of clothes with us.
A couple of weeks ago, we went over to my parents' house for dinner, and Abby had a blowout. Even though she is two, we still deal with those sometimes as she has bowel issues. They are rare enough that I don't think about packing an extra set of clothing anymore. Unfortunately, her blowout was a major one that required all of her clothes to end up in a tightly knotted plastic bag until we could get home and throw it in the washer.
The meltdown that ensued was massive. No amount of reasoning was working, so in a moment of desperation, I figured out a solution.
I grabbed one of my mom's t-shirts and a rubber band and made a makeshift jumper for her. I put the shirt on her, and then gathered the extra material between her legs and rubber-banded it in the back. She kind of looked like she had a tail. Ha! But it worked! The second she was redressed, the crying stopped and our happy Abby was back.
