I want a T. O. ( time out in ‘tween’) Wanna know why? Sure you do!
This was the scenario when I was in the shower this morning, as heard through the bathroom door:
Child: I pooped!
At this point, I handled it quite well. Cleaned up. Not too bad, considering.
Child: Mom! Mom!
Child: Could you wipe my bum bum?
Mommy: No, honey. You have to do that yourself (she’s 4)
Child: I don’t want to wipe my bum - it’s YUCKY! You do it.
Now I’m starting to wonder what I’ve done wrong.
And then THIS:
Guess where she got the water from? Yeah.
What’s a mom to do?
Yup. I said it: Go watch TV.
