Three little bear cubs


Oh, the stories of potty-training….

The other day, after dinner, during #1’s normal poo time, she yelled to us that she was all done.

When Mr. Serious went in to help her, she said “look daddy, I made a snake!” She was so proud of her snake.

The next day, she was reluctant, so I sent her on her way and reminded her she could make another snake (or “another one snake” as she would say). However, this time, she did not want to make a snake. So, I suggested a lizard, and she took care of business.

The day after that, she needed another animal to make. I suggested she make a bear. Creative, right? She headed on her way.

She yelled that she was all done, but it seemed to quick. Typically, she says she’s done when she’s only half-way done. So, I yelled to her to keep trying.

She said “I made a big bear, mommy.”

My reply “Well, make some bear cubs, then!”

Am I quick-witted or what? Mr. Serious thought this was hilarious. I imagine it would be even better if he were telling it live, but alas, my written story will have to do.

Oh, and the next time, #1 proclaimed that she “made meatballs!” Remind me to never eat any of her “cooking!”

  5. How creative! I have never had to deal with potty training since I have no kids, but I have had to deal with it when baby-sitting. I had one child who would need to go numero dos in a diaper. I told her if she went in a diaper I wasn't changing her all day and she would have to sit in it. Voila! Problem solved and the mother was singing praises. I just hope I can practice tough love with my own kids!

    When we were young, our family was eating spaghetti. Unfortunately, daddy ran out of meatballs, so my sister, God bless her soul, decided to make some more and put them on his plate. Her meatballs were the same as Lizzie's….Thank the LORD our dad realized the nature of the meatball before he bit into it!!!
