Yea, so Abby is not potty trained. I truly feel that I might be the only parent dropping off a diaper bag at kindergarten.
If you know or have ever met Abby, you KNOW that she is headstrong and will tell you exactly what she will and will not do.
(No idea where she gets that from ;) )
We talk about it all the time. I ask her if she wants to use the potty like a big girl. She replies, "Yes, like Mommy, Daddy and Kiss-tofer".
But she just won't physically do it.
So tonight, when she was in the bathtub, she got a funny look on her face. She said, "I need to get out now. I need to poop".
Ok, here's my shot. I got her out and told her that I was not putting a diaper on her, she needed to use the potty. I put her little Princess seat on it. Sat her on it, even got a little step stool for her.
I may or may not have promised her a piece of candy.
After about 10 minutes, nothing.
Oh, there was a lot of "I already did it, Mommy" and "I can't do it".
Side note: Do not ever tell me "Can't". That is not a word. You can do anything.
Finally that little spit-fire jumped off the toilet (nekkid as all get out), threw one hand on her hip and a finger right in my face (I was sitting on the floor), and said....
"GIVE ME THAT CANDY....NOW"
God, Just Give me MORE Patience!
In case you wonder, she got NO candy.
And I can't stay mad at a voice that asks me every night to sing her a song.
And then sings one to me!
