Natalie's latest trick is holding it when we ask her to go potty before bed, and then needing to get out of bed 30 minutes after we tuck her in. I've been a bit stumped, because you can't really MAKE a kid go potty.
Tonight she was sitting on the potty insisting that she didn't have to go. Well, daddy got a bright idea. Instead of fighting with her, he started tickling her, and she went. Boy did she go. I mean, if this were the Nile, it would be flooding. Oh, and she went #2 too.
While we are on the potty train, I have been telling her that "butt" is a word we use in the bathroom. She is quite adament about describing her bottom accurately, and I don't really have a problem with that, but I also don't want her saying "butt" all of the time in public. She is obeying the rule well.
Yesterday I was getting Megan out of the car and she was a tad stinky. I said, "You're a stinky butt!" and Natalie was sure to point out - "Mommy, we only say that word in the bathroom!"
I guess mommy needs to make sure she follows the rules too!
