Let me tell you something about my oldest child, Miss H. As the product of Mr. Rose and I, Miss H is quite possibly the most stubborn child ever born. She is nearly three years old and has only successfully used the potty once or twice, and only because I asked her to sit on it and not because she told me she needed to pee.
I know she is ready. She hides from me to make #2. I see her run behind the recliner or in another room, and when she returns, STINK-O!
I have tried positive reinforcement. I have tried bribery. The child is just not cooperating! She will sit there if I beg her and bribe her with candy, but nothing happens. Ugh. I am so tired of changing her diapers, which is a battle in itself.
I am down to my last resort.
Sorry honey, but you are getting big girl panties this weekend. You are going to learn that when you go to the bathroom in your pants, it is uncomfortable and yucky, and that the place to do that is in the potty.
Lord, give me the grace to get through this weekend!
