So after the crazy thunder storm and tornado watch we had last night that finally started like at 2 in the morning. I was just hoping my power did not go out because since I am packing I have packed all the good candles up and left out the not so great ones. Thank goodness it was late at night and was time for bed anyways. I also ended up with my 13 yr old and 2 yr old in my bed, which they take up most of the room and I get a corner.
So I tried to sleep in after getting up early and that was not going over so well my baby got up and I had to tend to her. I was tired and tried to cat nap but then it was silence in the house. Had to question where is my damn daughter at because she was just upstairs making all kinds of noise. I am calling her name and she is not responding to me at all, I had to get up and go check on her. While heading down the stairs I smell you guessed it bowl movements I was not happy at all. Then I look and all on my couch my damn rugs and her there it is. Needless to say my day got started I had to give her a bath and clean up the mess, good thing I had some rug cleaner and spray for the rug to make it smell good.
So now I am here reading the forums and online camming. I am about to work on some reviews because I am bored. Yes I said I would take a break but I just got my package in and tried out my stuff and now it's time to review, until I crash again.
I hope everyone else had a mild day compared to mine.
Aw! Bless your heart! I am so sorry. I hope you are doing okay with all that storming. It's been a day since you posted this, so I hope we hear from ya soon. I know I've seen bad weather all over the news. We had just some light rain this week and a thunderstorm, but nothing serious. Gosh. I hate power outages! Hell, I hate storms. Those are two things I really despise. Lol.
I have a tough time with poop too! I can handle throw-up just fine, but poop makes me cringe. Your daughter reminds me a little of the way one of the boys were as a baby. He often woke up before everyone else and to wake us up, he'd... ahem.... manage to get inside his diaper & either smear it or throw it! It was awful. Awful! It gets old really quick, so I can see how you're stressed. Some kids just do not want to use the potty. Seems like it's worse with poop. The 3 year old (girl) has issues there. She is totally fine using the potty and peeing, but she acts almost scared to poop there. She'll tell us she needs to, but says she doesn't want to on the potty. She's been with her dad for nearly a month straight now, and he's a firm believer in pull-ups. Ugh! She will go sometimes when she's here, but not always. I actually started thinking that it hurt when she went. It's possible, especially if they're constipated and she was a lot. Maybe something about pooping on the toilet is scary when they know it's going to hurt. Heck, I don't know.
You've probably already tried this, but I'll say it anyway -- one way we've had luck (not every time unfortunately) is by saying "we use the toilet! Mommy uses it, nana uses it & we'll tell her that the other kids use it & that they LIKE to use the potty. That has worked before.
Besides convincing them, though, the only other thing I know is bribing, and even that doesn't always work. Also, if they tell you beforehand that they have to go, take them to the bathroom and stay & say "we ain't leaving the room until it happens." That has worked some too. Or if you can get them on the toilet and start an interesting conversation during the toilet sitting, they sometimes finally end up using it.
Darn! No power and poop is never fun. You poor thing.
LOL I know that's not funny about her calling people "bitch," but I couldn't help but laugh a little. I apologize. She'll probably grow out of it.
You and your family are in my thoughts & prayers.
