What's On The Specials Menu Today Then?
Revenge Is Sweet
Well, it seems that more poo hilarity has ensued in the Lucas household today.
I honestly thought Mini Cheddar would be a doddle to potty train. For a two and a half year old, her speech is fantastic. I'm not just saying that because I'm her Mummy - everyone we meet can't believe how well she speaks for her age. She fully understands that the potty or toilet is where we do our 'wee wees and poo poos' and she knows when she's going etc.
See how I thought it would be easy. Well, how naive was I?
When I started to introduce it to her the other month she did great. In fact, by her second day she even asked for the potty, waited for me to get her on it and did a wee straight away.
I don't know what happened but she's regressed totally. Maybe it's because she's started play school (although she does go to the toilet at play school!) or maybe it's because she now knows I'm expecting another baby. Who knows? I can tell she needs to go so I get the potty or get her to the toilet and she goes mad. She will scream the place down and say she doesn't need to go. Then a minute later she's wet herself.
To say I was totally at the end of my tether the other day is an understatement. Let's just say, out of sight of MC I sobbed my heart out with pure frustration. Yes, it was that bad.
|Mmmm strawberry poo|
It all started so well. MC fed the doll, the doll went to the potty and we celebrated with a tea party - we blew up balloons and ate some sweeties.
Then MC said the dolly needed a poo. Wanting to be as realistic as possible I grabbed a few dried strawberries (I'll never eat another one ever again!) from the cupboard and when MC wasn't looking I put them in the potty under the doll.
MC was delighted when she checked if dolly had 'been'.
She wasn't so delighted when our dog, Betty, came into the lounge and ate the fake poo.
