do unto others....................especially children!!!!

It will come back to haunt you!

Emilia decided that she was going to be the keeper of the toilet paper last night. She likes to go to the bathroom with me and keep a running commentary for anyone who will listen. So last night as I was going pee-pee potty, she kept asking me if I was done, even before I sat down, but anyway, she likes to hand me the toilet paper when I am done...she also like to try to wipe me, but that's a completely different story that I just will not get into...so, when I was done she got all excited and handed me this piece of toilet paper about the size of a quarter. She had the most serious look on her face and then said "Mommy, mo?" so I told her that yes, I needed more than that....she looks at me and giggles and says "Peas," like I should say "Please" for my toilet paper...so, I did. That wasn't good enough. I also had to sign it.

***side note*** Her daycare teaches them sign language as part of the curriculum.

So, long story short, I had to beg for my toilet paper last night. For about 5 minutes I had to say "please," and I had to sign for it each time I said it, which was funny because she kept telling me I wasn't doing it right. I kept watching her, but she would move her hands a little differently every time, so I got yelled at too, "No Mommy, tummy!" Every time I said /signed it, I was rewarded with another quarter size piece of toilet paper. It was actually quite funny and endearing, but it got old pretty quickly, so I just had to get the rest myself.

Moral of the story......when potty training, be kind and generous with the toilet paper because one day they may have to "teach" you or help you and they will remember that Mommy only gave them 1 square.

Happy Tuesday everyone, one day closer!

That is too funny! So...what you are saying is - you can teach them to be conservative BUT maybe not with the TP.
