Tales of a four year old and a glycerin suppository.

These are just the poopy facts. Read at your own risk.

We've all been there. We've seen the penguin walk. We've heard the moaning and groaning. We ask and get the, "NO, I don't need to poop!" Like STOP asking me that stupid question.

This morning after Lil O's restless and poopless night (and couple of days) I drag out the suppository. Now, how do I do this and not have to call in backup I ask myself?????

I lie of course.

"Let me see your bottom to see if it's red. Maybe that's why you cannot poop."

It got her where I wanted her so to speak. I even gave her something to hold to get her distracted. She wiggled a bit when she realized something was to come. It was quick and painless.

I could see her expression as, "Did you even do anything?" I told her, "You're not going to want to leave the bathroom because you WILL BE pooping very soon."

I was in fact right!

The deed has been done. Then I heard something that you will never ever hear from a child.

"That was a good idea."

What was a good idea I ask?

"The possitory. I feel better now."

You heard it here first!!! The possitory made her feel better!!!!

I am glad that she is feeling better...and that you ARE supermom! Don't cha just love it when they acknowledge the fact too!?
it's a good thing that you really are supermom....when it gets to that stage, suppositories are the worst. But we will do anything to make out child feel better won't we?
