Re: Why is my 3 1/2 year old peeing all over the house?! Help!
That was my first reaction, that she was seeking attention in some way. Way to go mama!

She had one 'accident' today when I was putting the youngest to sleep!! But seems to be doing better though or at least happier. I think only time will tell if the increased attention in this department will help. I made her clean up the accident today too which was new. We are on day 2 of the new approach. Keep the ideas coming though!! I'm just still so confused as to why she was fully trained- even night trained- to this??? That's why I'm thinking with me being pregnant and sick and her being the middle child- she may be getting left out a little or feeling that way? I homeschool the oldest and she has expressed she wishes she homeschooled too. She may be feeling left out. I'm glad we are having a fourth so she can share middle position!!
