    Sleepless night and a stubborn poop!!!

    It’s 1 am and I’m cuddling up with my 3 year old daughter on the couch. We are watching Angelina Balerina at the moment. We are here because my daughter is in pain…She cannot sleep because she’s constipated…and she cannot poop! Until now she’s been sleeping on and off…and waking up screaming in her sleep. We are both really exhausted… She’s constipated. I know…such a simple thing can stop a child from sleeping. My daughter doesn’t like being dirty and she obviously hates pooping too! She says she just doesn’t like it…that poop is smelly and disgusting… God I’m so tired… From what I gather the reason she cannot poop…

    Potty Training Off the table

    Yes for now for at least another month or so potty training is off the table for my lil’ daughter! She is just not prepared i guess or i am too weak to actually do it with her. Maybe the fact that i am working has something to do with it as well?!?! At nursery they are saying that she will come around at some point… Well she was sitting on the toilet and potty but not doing anything for around two weeks or so.. Then she started saying that she doesn’t want poo poo so she is now refusing to sit on it altogether! Probably i should push her…
