It was pouring outside today (anyone else noticing a common theme here???) so back to the Mega Mall we went, this time to check out the water park. My sweet, brave, sensory-seeking, thrill-loving boy loved it! It was two hours of pure laughter until his lips were purple and his teeth were chattering and I had to pull him out against his will. Today, Grandma decided to pay the extra $8 to come in and watch and I think the front row seat to her grandson's sheer delight was worth every penny.
On a totally separate note, I could use some advice from all you parents and especially adoptive parents out there (those of you who don't like bathroom talk may want to skip this part)... Samuel has only pooped twice since I got him a week ago tomorrow. Once right after he arrived and again Monday morning; nothing since. He has been drinking lots of water and eating lots of fruit, little dairy and no junk food but still nothing. On Monday I was able to get him to go by having him sit on his potty bowl for a while but now he is refusing to sit on the potty bowl or toilet for any length of time. I tried giving him baby prunes today but he wouldn't eat them. I'm starting to get concerned as I really don't want this to turn into a serious problem. Any advice or suggestions anyone has for things I can try (bearing in mind that I am in Vietnam) would be greatly appreciated.
