Bathroom Horror

I have to pee so bad! But I won't go, I just can't bring myself to do it. Why you ask? I'll tell you why...it's because my Kiki finally went #2 after 2 days of holding it and that sucker is so big it won't go down! I only have 1 bathroom and JimmyEW isn't here to send it to its resting place.

So...I was soooooo tempted to post a picture of the clogging menace however I think that Sister HB would throw up in her mouth, along with some readers, so I am exercising self control. And Yes, I did take a picture. Kiki likes me to send them to his daddy when daddy is working late. So I have a whole poop gallery on my phone.

And Speaking of Poop, my poor Kiki hates to do it. He's a holder. So I tell him stories while he sits on the pot about all his adventures. His escapades always end up with him somehow at the 3 Bears House with his cousins and brother, pooping his pants, causing the toilet to overflow then trying to wash clothes and falling asleep upstairs. The Bears come home to a house that smells like a sewer and a bunch of young boys asleep upstairs. He loves it!

But today I thought he was going fall off he was laughing so hard. Today I introduced a character called "Mr. Poopy". Kiki's character had a BM that sprouted arms and legs (like Mr. Hanky the Christmas poo) and called himself Mr. Poopy. It chased all the boys around trying to get a hugs from them. I thought my boy was going to cry he was laughing so hard as I described how Mr. Poopy was scratching on his door at night trying to get him to come out and hug him. It was great fun!

So what are some weird quirky things you do to get your kids to do what you want/need them to do? Am I the only weirdo that tells potty stories?

What's that? You want to comment? Just click on the itty-bitty words below that say "Gimme Some Sugar". Can you see them? Good. We can't wait to chat with you.

When my son was potty training {it took 1 1/2 years!} I would read his Toy Story books to him and tell the story like it was Woody or Buzz Lightyear that had to go potty and their adventures of trying to make it to the bathroom in time. :0) Good times. Good stuff.
Kenzee wouldn't sit still for a story. We bribe her with stickers and bubbles to go poopy {which we have a holder too. Try 4 days!}

I've heard this is pretty darned common for boys. And I'll have to think about what weird stuff I've done to get C to do things he doesn't want to... hmmm...

You are so strange. Please never show me poopy pictures from your phone.

When I was a nanny toliet training was nearly permanently delayed by the movie Jurassic Park. You know the scene where the lawyer runs away and goes to the toliet and T-Rex comes along and eats him? Yeah. Ruined the potty for Gavin totally. I never told him poopy stories or did anything weird to get him to go. That would have been a good idea.

My daughter is a total holder. We tell her that the poopies are in line, waiting to get out...one or two for each day she's skipped. When she finally goes, we'll say, "Oh, that was Thursday's poop!" Then we'll tell her that the next ones in line want to get out so they can play in the sewers with their poopy friends. She totally knows it's a big joke, but it helps.

I see you are in Traverse City; I've been there many times! I moved from the Detroit area to Northern California in 2000. I'll bet if we played the six degrees of separation game we'd find a connection. Or not. I dunno.

I love that boy to death, but I have NEVER heard of a three year old clogging a toilet. That thing was HUGE! I don't remember when the last time I had one that huge either.

It also clogged my phone inbox. You should try to resend it, cause couldn't see it.

Awww... poor Kiki! At least he finally er... got it out of his system. I hope JEW was able to flush the remains out of your lives...

OK - that is bizarre. I have a friend who is the most gorgeous thing (slender, elegant, beautiful) who tells a similar grown-up story of clogging a loo in Canada (visiting her boyfriend, who lived there, from Australia, where she lives) and having to BREAK IT IN HALF WITH HER HANDS to get it down. Seriously. I could hardly look her in the eye for laughter and shock after she told me... am so pleased there was no picture to accompany!!! Had a great laugh thanks sisters...

Oh my gosh!!!!

Thanks for NOT documenting that visual for us :)

My Noodle was a holder as well. Lots of sweaty crying on the throne. yuck.

Sister Sassy said...

Well I'm glad I made the right choice in not showing the Poo. :)

Nightvision said...

Oh is that your boy? He's so cute, looks a lot like my girl. :-)
Maybe you could give him some prunes or more water so it's easier to poop. No wonder kids don't like to poop if it feels difficult.

Sister Sassy said...

I've tried many things with him. What mostly seems to work is to give him some mineral oil every night...but sometimes we're not that great at remembering :(
