    It upsets me that I can't come up with one good poop joke.

    Poop is the wrong way to go, you should have gone with:

    I find it a lot easier to pull up my pants once I move your mom's head out of my lap.

    Beside [a solid object like a bed] and REALLY lean to one side using that object to stop yourself from falling out ... but watch snapping a hip! Can you transfer to a toilet? Been getting dressed like that all these 27yrs.

    I'd recommend using gloves so you don't get your hands full of it.

    Use suspenders. Put them over your shoulders and do a couple pushups. Just kidding... I think. I always put mine on in bed. So much easier.

    wearing pants is over-rated, just go naked

    I see you're getting a lot of serious responses here!

    I have discovered that if I put my right foot on the strap behind my legs I can lean over onto the bed on my left side, put my hand into my sweats and pull them up. I then turn around and place my left foot on the strap and pull up the left side. Putting the leg up helps elevate my hips more.

    I also put my outside foot up to transfer into bed. After a few scary episodes of not making it onto the bed I found this gives me a lot more lift.

    With the belt behind my legs I have to be careful not getting my foot caught under it. It's best to remove your shoes!!

    You seem to have an unhealthy facination with my mother.

    I scoot out to the edge of the cushion and lean back... and get them up as far up on my thigh as possible. Then lean side to side as I pull up. Or push my butt up by doing a wc push up with the one hand as I pull up pant with the other. I do this w/ jeans so should be easier for you [i know you aren't a jeans girl].
