Our almost-4 y/o has been resisting pooping on the toilet for months. She can do it (and has done it), but chooses not to for whatever reason. So she goes at night in a pull-up, or not at all. Like, literally holding it in for up to a week at a time. Last week we had enough. My wife put a chart on the bathroom wall and said that if she fills up a whole row (7 squares) she gets $10. Since then, she's gone 8 times in 6 days. We're going to be paying her like $50/month! Fortunately she doesn't know the difference between a $1 bill and a $10 yet.

I took the day off since our daycare is closed and I'm going with my dad and 2 y/o twins to see the PJ exhibit at MoPop this afternoon. I have an ample supply of lollipops at the ready. We'll see if that backfires. It's going to be a battle of "Something to occupy them, sucking on lollipops" vs. "Sugar overload"

Pray for me.

Cross-posted from the poop thread:

I went to the bathroom this morning and left my infant sons--10 months old--in the kitchen to fend for themselves. Surrounded by toys, snacks, etc. I was gone for 5 minutes and they got into the trash, unloaded a dirty diaper and smeared poop all over themselves and the floor. Threw them both in the bath with their clothes on, cleaned them up, threw them into their cribs naked, cleaned the floor, showered myself, and then got them ready to get out of the house. Quite the morning. I have 5.5 hours of work left and am already completely drained.

My daughter never did the poop smearing thing. At home, at least. One time she blew out her diaper at daycare, crawled through it and spread it all over the nursery. They had to empty the room and steam clean the carpet. :haha:

She'll be 4 this weekend and has finally mastered shitting in the toilet, so I think we're out of that stage...fingers crossed.

My daughter did it maybe 2-3 times, and only when she woke up in her room and had her fun in there. She's 3 next week and we're very, very close on potty training. This may be the first instance of the boys causing trouble together--I know which one was the ringleader because he had more all over him, and the other one had fun in the tub while the worse one spent the whole time whining and crying.

My kids are just about there, as far as pooping in the toilet. So this begs the next question: How long til they can also effectively wipe their own butts?

Top 5 questions the 4 y/o has asked since her grandpa died last month:

5. "Is grandpa at the north pole?"
4. "Do dead people need food?"
3. "Do babies die?"
2. "Will you die?"
1. "Will I die?"

:|

We're taking the approach of being 100% truthful. No euphemisms, no evasion, no afterlife bullshit. So far so good.

My daughter is a psycho. Her and her sister were on top of me roughing me up I was fake yelling and struggling. My daughter stopped, looked me in the eye and in the calmest voice said 'Shhhhhh. No yelling daddy.' and then went on to rough me up even harder

:thumbsup:

I'd like to take credit but mostly it's just exhaustion and lack of creativity to come up with answers that will satisfy her without scaring the shit out of her.

On a lighter note...

What's a good way to ask one's mother to stop talking to the 4 y/o in annoying, exaggerated "baby talk"?

When my wife's grandmother died we were all truthful and my boy fully understood. His aunt was spouting the heaven bullshit and nanny is watching you all crap and my boy just shook his head like she was crazy, walked away muttering "you're wrong". I was very proud.

A couple of years later on the way to my grandfather's funeral he was asking if Pop will turn into a zombie.

My kids have been self-wipers from very early. We may have helped for less than a year. When they started doing it themselves we’d check to make sure they were actually clean and they always were. Even better, my kids barely ever wet the bed when transitioning out of pull-ups. Less than 10 wet beds combined for three kids. #MiraclesAreReal
