Oh sure, you may have a kid who pees and poops in the potty all on their own at 2 or 3, but, ahem, you still aren’t really done.
Because you still have to wipe their tooshies.
And I am SO over this.
For a while Bug was trying to do it on his own, but the skid marks on his underwear were going to send me over the edge, so we went back to mommy and daddy doing it.
It kills me. He goes into the bathroom, shuts the door for privacy and when he’s finished, he yells “I’M DONE MOM!” at the top of his lungs.
Every time I open the door to help him, I’m greeted with his little booty in the air, arms and head on the floor, downward facing dog style. It’s so thoughtful as I have direct access to the area I need to wipe, but seriously kid? It’s just not necessary nor is it welcome. (Nice visual eh? Don’t worry. I’ll spare you the photo.)
The thing that cracks me up is he is totally oblivious. I think he’d play in that position or read a book/watch a video for a few hours, all while very exposed.
So I’m asking a VERY serious question here folks. When can kids adequately wipe their own hineys?
Please say 4. Please say 4. Please say 4.
