• NOT leaving the house without a matching HAIR ACCESSORY
• BELIEVING that NOT NICE girls shouldn’t be allowed to wear PRETTY bows
• Picking shoes to MATCH her outfit
• Being NAKED is NOT NICE (except when walking to a from a bath)
• Lot of other stuff too!!!
Today was the first day G wore a PULL UP to school. As soon as she got out of bed I took her to the potty. My thought process is like what I do with me and my puppies…go potty first thing when you wake up. I swore I wouldn’t pressure G into this whole potty training thing…but what’s the point of putting on a fresh pull up only for her to PP in it right away??? Okay, so she’s flipping out! She’s NOT walking to the potty NAKED! OMG, why would I torture (see above list) her with this!!! She’s NOT happy. So I just carry her downstairs to the powder room and offer Big Potty or Small potty. She keeps saying “I DONE” but she hasn’t done anything. I know, I know…but I just want her to sit there for a few minutes! Then she yells “GO AWAY….SHUT DE DOOR”. So, I’m thinking we might be in business. NADA. Don’t know what she did but I understand privacy. Anyway, after 10 minutes and no PP I tortured her by telling her to walk around the family room/kitchen naked. She yelled at me the whole time. “I WANT MY CLOTHES” You know she’s 2.5, right! So I tell her I’m calling Ms Tammy (her teacher) and tell her that it’s good for little girls to go PP in the morning before mommies put on the pull up. You see, this trick has been brilliant in the past and worked EVERY TIME! So I get off the fake phone conversation and tell G what Ms. Tammy said to me and you know what that STINKER yelled…
with a smart a$$ tone along with a how-dare-you stance!
This is a photo of her on the very same day just as we got out of the car for school. I couldn't hear what she was saying but it was probably something like...
"SEE THIS FACE...DON'T EVEN TRY AND PLAY ME!"
and of course...some more cute photos!!!
and this is the "I DON'T WANNA GO" look when I came to pick her up! :0
