Flies and Poop

My readers are going to start dropping like flies unless I start posting more. I've been spending a lot of time with my Blub Blub Sisters over here. Our BlubHer Overhaul officially started yesterday and I'm trying to get myself healthy. By the way, it's not too late to join us. We've got a great bunch of women there that are simply amazing. Everyone is TREMENDOUSLY supportive. Send me an email if you'd like to jump on the bandwagon.

So, get this. R. went to school yesterday and she went IN smiling!! Um hum...yes she did! I was so proud and excited. She's starting to really enjoy herself now. I am so happy for her.

Now, if I could stop her from poopin' in her drawers. She did well today, but she's been having accidents constantly. I would say it's nerves from school, but it started long before school was an issue.

It's really just a case of being too involved in what she is doing to stop and use the toilet. The other day she had another accident and unfortunately for him, Mr. Schmitty had clean-up duty. I needed to stay in the other room because I was afraid I might rub her nose in it like you would a naughty puppy.

When she came out of the bathroom she said, "Mom, do you know WHY I pooped in my pants?"

I replied, "Um, because you were being too lazy to get up and use the toilet?"

To which she responded, "Well, that's the first reason."

The things she says...OY! And here is another R.ism...though it's totally unrelated to poop or flies, it is just as darned cute.

We were watching tv in her room the other day and a commercial came on for ForReal Friends. They have a new dog which now rolls over.

"Look mama, isn't he cute?"

I thought to myself, "No, not really." It really is kind of an ugly pooch but I told her, "Yes, R., he is."

"I like him!"

Of course she does. She is the stuffed doggie QUEEN! "He can even tumble!"

"I know mama, just like a weed!!"

OMG! My almost-four-year old is seriously regressing in the potty training department too. I have finally resorted to ordering him to the bathroom every hour or so. "No, I don't care what you're doing. This isn't up for negotiation. Go. To. The. Bathroom." He's been potty trained for quite awhile now and this just came out of nowhere. What the heck, kids??

But what was the other reason?

That is to funny..tumble weed.

Regressing in the potty area is the worst! I would have been in the same boat as you...rub rub rub. grrrrr

Really?! Rubbing the nose works for boys too?! Finally a solution!! Thsi boy is so stubborn that he is about to get to that point. That or I ship him off to military school at 4 and let them deal with him. Maybe I should try the nose and the newspaper first....

My son regressed as well. It took him a bit...ok, a LONG time, but he finally got it. Sending him to the potty often helped, but honestly, threatening to take away his favorite toys worked the best.

Aw. Shes is probably just going through a transition. Im happy to hear she's doing and feeling better about school!
