As you all know, my kids are pretty young - the oldest is 6 - so I need to get some input from those of you whose kids are a bit older. At what point are these kids going to take responsibility for their own bathroom habits? Because this is how the days sound at our house now:
Morning: Did you go pee-pee yet?
When they are playing outside and try to drop their pants and go in the basement window well: NO! You have to go pee pee inside!!!
When they are talking to me and obviously holding themselves: Just go pee-pee and come back, ok?
When they are wiggling so much they can't even eat dinner: Please just go pee-pee and then you can come back and finish.
Before bed: Did you go pee-pee? Are you sure???
Also, does anyone want to weigh in on whether or not this is strictly a boy phenomenon? Not that it really matters to me, since boys are all I'm dealing with around here. I'd just like to know if/when there's a light at the end of the tunnel for me somewhere.
