Nevaeh was about to lose another tooth and we didn't want to do another tooth day party with cake because we have noticed a tooth in the back that could be a cavity. What to do, what to do? Well, She loves Angry Birds. LOVES them.
We told her she had a tooth that had to come out and we would pull it out and she could have Angry Birds instead of cake. She was thrilled. Yanked the tooth, went to Walmart and viola..... happy little girl.
Our next move of Bribery was with Selah. She is potty trained and rarely has accidents if you don't count going number #2. To this day she has still never used the potty to go #2. Soooo frustrating. She waits until naptime or bedtime when we put a diaper on her. If she can't wait for that then she waits until she is outside playing. It really sucks when we are at a park. I can't tell you how many pairs of underwear I've simply thrown away. I'M NOT DRAGGING THAT HOME IN THE CAR. Blech!
So the last time at the park and she did the deed it was so bad I had to lay plastic down on the chair and just drive her home to bath. That was the last straw. On the drive I said to Selah "you are a big girl now, you will be 4 in a few months and this has to stop. You need to start using the potty for #2 now. Will you please try?" and she said so sweetly "OK, Mama."
So yesterday she picked out her Angry Bird toy that she wanted and she was told she could not have it unless she went poo poo in the potty.
This kid. The damn toy is sitting in the cupboard in the kitchen. It could be there forever.
