Toilet Negotiations

Recent Discussions with Addison:


Me - "Addison, let's go sit on the toilet and try to go potty."

Addison - "No. I don't do that."

Me - "Well, as soon as you start going potty on the toilet, I'll buy you some pretty big girl panties."

Addison - "I like my Mickey Mouse diapers."

Me - "I'll buy you Mickey Mouse panties."

Addison - "But I like powder."

Me - "You can still have powder."

Addison - "No. I don't do that."

Me - (sigh......)


Me - "Addison, time to go try the toilet."

Addison - "I go potty on toilet tomorrow, ok?"

Me - (sigh....)

Slightly related news....

On our morning announcements at the junior high where I teach, they are doing daily Constitution facts. Well, the little girl who was speaking didn't know how to pronounce the word and instead said "constipation" each time. I was laughing pretty hard because not only was this funny as heck, but not a single student in my class noticed.

Also -

On our recent hike at Mt. Saint Helens, I wanted to mention that Aidan kept saying, "We're gonna die.... we're gonna die. We're gonna get exploded by the volcano and be here forever..." He hiked about 2 very hilly miles very successfully, but apparently didn't have confidence in our surviving the journey.

Hahah! This is very funny!! Maybe the toilet training part isn't exactly hilarious to you, but I got a little chuckle out of it. :o)
