Potty Training, um yeah, NOT

It went something like this:

Middle: "Can I come down now?" He asks from upstairs.

Me: "Yes, you may come down now."

Middle: "Ok. Mom, I pooped on the stairs."

Me: "You what?"

Middle: "I pooped on the stairs."

This is what I saw when I looked up the stairs:

Little wads of toilet paper. Hmmm...I question the pooper further.

Me: "Middle, where did you poop?"

Middle: "In my pants."

Me: "Yes, but WHERE did you poop?"

Middle: "In my bum."

Me: "How did the poop get on the stairs? Did you poop in your pants and it fell out of your pant leg?" [side bar, he had been sent to time out and in order to get him to go I must threaten removal of Cars decorated clothing items. I removed his pants, then he complied but not before he took off his diaper.]

Middle: "No, I kicked it."

Me: "You kicked it? Where did you kick it from?"

Middle: "From my room."

Me: "So you pooped in your room?"

Middle: "Yes."

While cleaning up, I found this:

Toilet paper on the floor of his room. Hmmmm...I had placed two rolls of toilet paper on the steps, to bring up the next time I went up, at least he knew where to find it!

Edited to add - while I was writing this post - they put this together: I was VERY impressed with this feat!

Oh, I hate situations like this because you have no idea where else he has really been and what else he has touched. You will never know what has been contaminated!

Good luck!

So that'll be the *last* time you put him in time out to get him to poop, then? LOL! ;)

I'm sorry to laugh, but I find that rather amusing. I guess because we've been there.

I think we moms could write a book "The all inclusive inappropriate locations of poop dicovery". Nice ring, don't ya think?

Oh Bless your heart. I have to admit I got a chuckle out of this post - I'm trying to potty train my STUBBORN 3 yr old boy so I can definitely relate! Gosh, the things are kiddos do - LOL

OMG. That is seriously funny. What you need now is a map. Like a treasure map with dotted lines following the path of the poop. I love that toilet paper was involved in multiple locations.
