Proud Not Poop'd
I had her sit on the potty before she left out for school to see if she could take care of business and sure enough she did. I reminded her to go before she went outside at school and that would help her keep her pants clean and her butt hurt free.
When she came home with clean pants you would have thought we won the lottery. We were doing our happy dance and high-fives were at work and Miss earned 20 minutes of computer time before homework. Worth playing for? I think so.
She did well overall on homework and Mommy praised her all up and put a sticker on her paper. It is amazing the difference in the work she does at home with me and the work she does in class. Hey what do I know; I’m just the Mom.
Now on to this morning … Miss made the choice not to earn riding to school with Nan and the other kids. She treated Nan badly with mean words, a nasty attitude, and bullying and that does not earn riding to school with Nan, so Dad needed to take her to school. She was not happy about the situation and she expressed that in the form of a tantrum. She pulls out a level of drama that is seriously making us consider acting as an option for Miss. “I am begging you, let me ride with Nannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.” And the dramatic tantrum award goes to … Miss M!
So while we had ourselves a clean pants party yesterday I am not so sure we will be repeating that today. I am thinking an angry little girl just may decide to fill her pants today.
