I've just made a terrible error
Although it’s given a brief insight into the functionality of a brain that’s been undernourished of sleep the last few weeks.
My daughter did a wee in her potty. My brain crawls into action:
Need to take potty to sink;
Get rid of the wee;
There’s the dog;
Did I feed the dog this morning?
I’ll just tip this in here;
There you go, Juno dog;
Right, back to the living room;
Something didn’t seem right about that…
WAIT, JUNO! NOOOOOOOO…Posted 4 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
Camper van trip with child no 1, maybe six months old. Horrible smell appears, but it’s a nice day and we’re sat outside on the grass. Wait for the noise and gurning to finish from the little angel, then take her nappy off. Did NOT want to put that child anywhere near the mat, never mind the van seating so left her out on the grass while I fetched the nappy bag. Come back from recesses of the van to see firstborn completely spotless and our border collie licking her lips. Dogs are weird. You’re a bad dog owner and a bad parent. We all are now and again.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
No no.. I made a much worse error last week..
Yunki jr mkII is a handful, and is having a few tentative sits on the potty at nappy changing times, usually with nothing to show for his efforts although he’s quite happy to sit there for quite a while..
And so it went the other evening, only I got distracted and thought it would be ok to leave him there for a minute while i went through to the kitchen..
Now I am fully aware of the importance of warm praise and encouragement during potty training, with all sorts of future problems likely if the matter is not handled positively and with sensitivity..
Still, it was beyond my skill as a parent to behave correctly when my triumphant son came striding proudly into the kitchen brandishing the fruits of his labour in his hands, and a rather chocolatey looking grin on his face..Posted 4 years ago
Whether he will ever use the potty again I can’t say for sure, in fact whether he will ever defecate again remains to be seen.. 🙁kevjMember
Even the bleakest recesses of my mind refuse to imagine how that might have been discovered.
This, and even then, I’m trying very hard to imagine that the circumstances leading up to this event are all coincidental and innocent.
I recall a rumour at school about one boy, his dog and a pot of jam……Posted 4 years ago
