He is Sabotaging Me

October 23, 2008

“He” is the Husband in this case. We haven’t even started potty training the Little One (she’s only 18 months old) but when the time comes I am going to be toast.

The Little One has a basic understanding of the concept, but really doesn’t get it. She will say “poo poo” and then go sit on the little potty in the bathroom. Granted she is still wearing her diaper and pants, so she sort of gets what she is supposed to do, but not really.

Well the way we finally convinced the Big One that going on the potty was cool was to bribe her with M&Ms. Even though she’s been out of diapers for several months, she goes in phases where she asks for an M&M and a sticker for a potty reward. I figure it’s one M&M so it’s no big deal.

The other day I was out and the Husband was in charge. Apparently after the Big One went potty he gave both girls an M&M. So now the Little One thinks that every time the Big One goes potty and gets an M&M, somehow she deserves one too.

It’s very sad to see her standing at the counter saying “nemandnem…nemandnem…nemandnem.” So now I am going to have to figure out a new plan for bribing the Little One to go on the potty.

Damn Husband.

    Oooooo bad husband!

    Maybe the Little One should get skittles instead.

    skittles would be my suggestion too (that & confiscating any candy the Husband wants for himself between now & Little Ones training and using HIS candy…)
