I really think I am messing my kids up. To the point where I need to put a pay pal account up for their future therapy.
I am not exactly sure how this happened, but somehow my 10 and 8 year old daughters believe that once you become an adult, you will no longer have to pee or poop.
Yeah. I seriously have no idea where they come up with this.
10 yr old~ Mom, when do you stop using the bathroom?
Me~ Umm, what?
10 year old~ When do you stop going pee and poop?
8 yr old~ When you are a grown up.
10 yr old~ Okay so what age?
8 yr old~ When you get older, just a little bit older, when you are done being a teenager. That is when you do not pee or poop anymore. Grown up people do not pee or poop. I know this because I am so very smart.
10 year old~ Okay good. I can’t wait.
Me~ Can’t wait for what?
10 year old~ Pay attention Mom, I cannot wait to not pee or poop.
8 yr old~ Me too!!!
Me~ Ummm, who told you guys this?
Both girls in unison~ YOU DID MOM, DUH!!!
10 year old~ When you bought me that gross book about pads and tampons and underwear, and the stupid body changing, you told us no more pee or poop.
Me~ No, no I did not! What? When? What did I say?
10 year old~ You said when we have to use the pad or the other thing we will not have to pee or poop.
Me~ Okay……I think maybe you misunderstood.
I told you I am messing them up! I am not even sure how this happened. I put so much thought and care, and sensitivity into buying the American Girl book that explains the body changing and all that good stuff. I was actually quite proud how I handled the whole puberty thing.
And now? Now it looks like I somehow convinced my daughters that after you are a teenager you no loner have to pee or poop??
