A friend of mine realized she was missing her yellow food coloring. That seemed odd. All the other colors were there. After inquiring among her children, the truth came out. Her six-year-old boy had taken it and for several days had been squirting it in the toilet to make the family think uh, you know…that it was not flushed! Ha! Thanks for the story June!
I have thought of the story often and have laughed out loud every time. My four year old to date has just not been serious about potty training. She doesn’t care. This story inspired my potty training treat idea. Today she and I made a little potty. Serious! I had some white frosting, so we squeezed a drop of yellow food coloring into it. Then we poured it in the potty. “This is where the pee-pee goes.” (Guffaws) Then we placed some Hershey’s chocolate in the “pee-pee.” “This is where the poo-poo goes.” (Rolling on the floor laughing) When all else fails, why not try just having some fun? Make little potty treats!
“I can’t wait to eat the pee-pee Mom.”
Then later, “Yum, best pee-pee I ever tasted!”
