Potty Time

You know - as I've lamented before - we are working on potty training at our house - have been for MONTHS - yes, we are trained - Chloe is not!!! I ask her - she says "No" - I take her - she goes. That's always the routine - so I just have to remember to take her and all is well. A week or so ago the boys were with her for just a bit when Joe and I ran out and Chloe had to go - not just the usual pee either!! So we get a call from Micah saying that Chloe had to go - THE BIG STUFF - and what should he do?? We told him that he would need to wipe her - after he picked his jaw up off the floor, we gave him instructions as to how to do that (sad, but the boys have not had to do this yet - or maybe that's a good thing!!). He agreed he could handle it BUT he was still a little hesitant so Dad (rich man that he is) offered him a dollar. That clinched it - he could do it!!! Well tonight I get another phone call - Chloe has gone potty again and what should they do??? (What is up anyway- she never tells me she has to go potty?!?!!?) I explained to Aaron that he would need to wipe her (it was the normal stuff this time so no big deal!!). He paused and I heard, "SO - do I get a dollar???" The jury is still out on that one!

Honey, if the boys will not only babysit, but wipe little bottoms too all for the bargain price of one dollar -- You are doin alright.

That is hilarious! Those boys will have her potty trained in no time because they will constantly be bothering her to sit on the toilet.

Too Funny!

LOLOLOLOL I love it!!! Those boys are becoming shrewed businesmen.Maybe you should consider paying them to potty train her. Sounds like they are doing pretty good at it.

When money is involved, you can rest assured the word will get out. Are you sure they are not paying Chloe to use the potty? If so, eliminate the middle man and save some money. If they work for a dollar, Chloe might be happy with a quarter. Keep the "Bilby Family Antics" coming. Someday you can publish your blog to pay for the potty training expenses!!! Too Funny!!

I vote "Give him the dollar!"
After all, based on how traumatic such a chore always was to my HUSBAND, I cannot imagine the anguish and hardship your poor son had to endure!!!
