Thanks for the laugh Festurrrr


Does this also explain why when men "go back to the breast", they suddenly have bad aim in the bathroom?

The aim is from bad eyesight???

Your "back to the breast" comment brings up another question?

At what age do most women decide to "go back to the bottle"?

Depends on which bottle...but I think it is usally somewhere between "I do" and "Hey,sweetcheeks, run in the kitchen and grab me another beer"....Tequilla anyone?

I remember my mom telling me that my behavior would cause me to go blind. I developed cramps in my hand, so my deterioration stopped at 20/600 vision. The bad aim of most men could probably be corrected with a little more TLC from the wife.

My daughter was stubborn like that at 3 also. All it took for her was for a friend (1 year older than her) to go in the bathroom with her (like girls always do!) She didn't want her friend to think she wasn't a big kid too!

Asking for a diaper and squatting? That sounds pretty smart to me.

Here's a thought, stop giving it to her and let her crap her pants a few times. Maybe then she'll stop.

Or you could put a cat box in the corner and save on Pampers.

She might point out to the kid that that is how cats relieve themselves, and not big girls.

My baby's diapers smell a little like rotting cabbage. Too bad I can't post the smell here. Words do not do it justice.

NO! I know you well enough to guess what your're thinking, and you're thinking about sending everyone a letter.

Au, if that is true...take me off the mailing list, I ahve two grandsons, and had three kids...I know that smell..lol.

Mememe, I know it might be hard, but STOP giving into her demands for a diaper and if she has accidents in her underwear, so be it. Each time you give her a diaper you are reinforcing to her that this behavior is acceptable.

When my son was two and half, he articulated very well one day that "Mommy, last diaper, got to buy more." If he could say all that, he could tell me it was potty time. He hated it, but we got through it and so will you.

I worry that if I stop putting her in a diaper she will hold it and end up with an impacted bowel. My son had that at one time {not from anything like she pulls} and I remember what he went thru.

You could at least try it and see if it goes TOO long, and then give her a diaper.

Trust me, she wouldnt go that long. Even if she has an accident here and there, she will get the idea. Make sure she is getting plenty of fluids and fiber to prevent constipation. If she does not get constipated she will not get an impaction.

She is not all that far away now from kindergarten, if you do not get passed this by then, what will she do? She will hold it til she gets home. Nip it in the bud now while you can be there to reassure her.

I know this is hard. We went through it last year with my grandson. It is not impossible, you know this, you are a Momma. \:\)

Right. There's nothing like crap in one's pants to concentrate one's attention on prevention.
