Clean-Out: Day One & The Fair

I wasn't able to begin Lucy's clean-out yesterday. She had an afternoon playdate with her friend and by the time we got home, she still needed a nap and it was getting late. We have never used Magnesium Citrate before, so was kind of unknown how it was going to effect Lucy and just how quickly. I didn't want to give it to her in the evening and be up with a poopy kid all night long.

I gave her two ounces of the laxative this morning with a little apple juice. She downed it, but nothing has happened! As I write this blog, it has been over 12 hours since I gave it to her and she has pooped regular Lucy poop twice. There has been no signs of cleaning anything out! Seriously, not to be too graphic, but I was expecting huge blowouts! Maybe I am mistaken on how this laxative clean-out is supposed to work, but it doesn't seem like it is working. I am going to continue the routine tomorrow of two ounces of Mag Cit AND give her the regular cap full of Miralax that she takes everyday.

Since there was no bowel issues today due to the laxatives, we decided to take an evening trip to the Sacramento County Fair. We spent five hours exploring the grounds, letting Lucy lead the way.

She found a science corner with fun crazy mirrors, games and activities. We played with magnets, pulleys, levers, air pressure and gears. She was being silly, and danced in front of these mirrors for a long time!

We went into a petting zoo. Lucy was in 'hog' heaven! She absolutely adores animals, and we had a hard time getting her to leave the pen. Pygmy goats, sheep, pigs, deer, donkey, chickens, wallaby, and llama were there, and oh so friendly!

Luckily this sign was just a joke. Lucy needs all the calories she can get! She had a Fair dinner, some of her Vava's funnel cake, and a few whole bunch of licks off of my dipped cone!

Still no clean-out progress, but who cares when we had such an enjoyable evening at the fair! There is always time tomorrow for more laxatives!
