The Third Commandment

On Friday we had what we thought was, at the time, a major breakthrough in our ongoing pooping saga. Kate finally gave up her addiction to diapers, stopped the withholding, and pooped on the potty. Gonzo and I celebrated that night with wine. We were giddy with the success, finally able to see the light at the end of that long, dark tunnel.

Not so fast. Saturday brought back the withholding, stained panties, and accidents. Sunday, more of the same. A frustrated Gonzo said to Kate, "I don't understand. You pooped on the potty on Friday. Why can't you poop on the potty today?"

Her answer was, "It's not Friday. Today is Sunday. I don't poop on the potty on Sunday."

My daughter, the good Catholic, following the third commandment- Remember to keep holy the Lord's day.

Oh Kate...give it up for your poor mommy and daddy. Clearly you can do it!!! Any day of the week is good.

OK, everyday, but Sunday then, Kate.

Maybe once she's got 6 days down, she won't be interested in a holy day of rest!

Kristen- That's what is so frustrating. She can do it but chooses not to.

Lori- Kate's complaint is that she doesn't like to poop on the potty. I am hoping that once she starts to go more she will be more willing to go every day.

Well that is just too funny [from over here] not quite so funny if you're you perhaps. I love it anyway.
This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Maddy- I have to find humor in the whole situation. If I don't laugh about it, I'll cry.

Yes very frustrating.
