Okay, so it is official. My kids won't poop on the potty. Izzy woke up 3 or 4 times last night screaming "POOP!" I took him to the bathroom every time, but he never pooped. By 5am, I was at my wits end. He was wearing a diaper. If he didn't want to poop on the potty, why didn't he just go in his diaper? I am totally confused.
Fortunately, he is uber cute. Otherwise, I might have dropped him off the on the side of a road somewhere.
And Porgie? Well, she is the most stubborn little kid I have ever met. Last night she kept asking me to put a diaper on her, which means that she wanted to poop in her diaper. I refused, and she threw a fit of epic proportions. She screamed for about an hour, but I didn't cave. And honestly, I am not sure I did the right thing. She has been holding it in for 3 days. That is a long time.
Gah. I just wish this would come easily. I hate that every new developmental phase seems like a struggle. Honestly, I would almost prefer that they just shit in their underwear. I loathe the waiting and worrying game that we are currently playing.
It may seem like I am floundering, but don't count me out yet. I have a plan, which involves flax seed oil and prunes. Of course, this is probably going to end very badly. Be expecting pictures of my living room covered in shit.
