The tipping point seems to be when you get them into regular underwear instead of a diaper. It's much more uncomfortable for them to soil underwear, so gives them incentive to eliminate elsewhere.

Our first go with the younger was to simply take his diaper off and catch him in time. Yeah. The first time he crapped without the diaper, there was shit on the floor, shit between his toes from him stomping in it, shit on his hands from wiping it off his legs, shit in his hair from wiping his hands off, shit in Mom's hair for the same reason. Pretty much shit everywhere. That didn't go very well.

I suspect toilet training happened earlier when cloth diapers were in use, because of the discomfort of wearing a piss soaked, crap filled cloth diaper. These new disposables form a nice gel and are much more comfortable to wear loaded, as it were. I think.


:lol:

Well last week my daughter was going outside to crap on the patio then yelling at the flies that to 'GO AWAY IT'S MY POO!'. :shifty: This week she's been asking to go to the toilet for wees and poos and today managed a trip to the local nature reserve without any accidents in her knickers. :thumbup:

The first time my oldest crapped in the garden, he didn't get any on him or anything. Then my dog ran up and ate it.

Hi Guys,

We had a small disaster yesterday at the Ignite performance at the kids' school. In the pre-show clowning around before the final show Saturday night, Matthew slipped on a polished wooden floor in front of the audience (we were knocking a beach ball around with the audience) and he came down HARD on his arm. I had to assist him out of the auditorium to the foyer, where he promptly went pale, sweaty, nauseous and was in a lot of pain with his arm at the wrist and elbow. His fingers were numb and he was in tears. We iced it, put his arm in a sling and gave him some Ibuprofen.

This all about 30 minutes before their clown act during the performance...

:whine:

Fortunately, I was dressed like a clown, as Claire had encountered a hostile adult who brushed her out of the way on Thursday (leaving her in tears), so I "helped" the kids do some outside, pre-show clowning on Friday and Saturday's shows. Sooooooo, pappa clown (me) substituted into the act and took over the physical parts of Matthew's routine while he played the saxophone with his throbbing swollen arm in a sling. Here's the result...

Today, I x-rayed Matthew and there's a suspicion of a possible radial epiphysis fracture (Salter-Harris type) so he's in a backslab plaster and arm in a sling till at least Wednesday.

:ill:

I suspect that he'll earn some kudos tomorrow at school when he's seen with his arm in plaster and in a sling. He showed tremendous courage to go back out and put on a show with a possible broken arm only 30 mins after it happened.

:thumbup:

P.S. The Volunteer from the audience was the school's Principal. :evilgrin:

Now isn't that sweet. Sorry about your boy, I hope he's okay. :( But, he's quite the trooper! As for the other clowns there too. :)

I just noticed that he was playing the Simpson's on saxophone. :tongue:

Watching a Disney movie (The Little Mermaid, I think) my then-5-year old daughter turned to me at the wedding scene, and asked "In the movies it's always a girl and a boy who fall in love and get married, but in the real world it could be two girls or two boys, right?" I explained that while girls usually fell in love with boys that she was right, and while same-sex couples who love each other and live together could not yet get married in Australia, that might change soon. "Cool!," she replied, "because it would be completely unfair if they can''t."

Insightful as that was, it was what came next that floored me. She's got younger brothers and her total understanding of sex is that you need a mummy and a daddy to make a baby. So faced with the news that same-sex couples did exist in the non-Disneyfied world, she came out with (as close to a direct quote as I can recall) "But without a mummy and a daddy, they wouldn't be able to have their own kids. That must be really sad for them, but they could still adopt if they wanted kids, right?" (one of her friends is adopted so she knows about that).

Very much a proud daddy moment :)

All my kids are grown up now. But my eldest daughter is expecting her first child, my first grandson (they know the gender) on Dec 3rd, 2 days after my 51st Birthday. So with a bit of luck in a few years I'll have some material to contribute! In the mean time congratulations to all bright little stars that will light up our future!

Good news - the arm isn't broken, merely sprained. The 1/2 plaster should come off tomorrow.

:dance:

Yes, I do have nice legs, don't I ? That's karate, tennis and cycling for you. I could probably crack walnuts between my butt cheeks. But, this and the other favourable attributes of my legs are solely for the use of Mrs Durro, sorry ladies (and Witticism :shock: ).

It's a grandson. When the nurse was doing the ultrasound she told Claire she was having a son, Claire asked how the nurse could tell. The nurse pointed to the screen and said 'Penis, testicles.' Not much she could say to that!

So you'll be rattling around the house all on your ownsom, lots of study time now!

But how did you go Ms Jain ? Keep it al together or become a blubbering mess ?

Your boy is a very handsome young man by the way.
