8 Is Enough!






Swiped right off the sink while I was brushing my teeth and flushed without me even knowing it. She's so good at what she does. I think she has a future testing systems for alarm companies or working for the FBI! This makes 8 tubes of toothpaste down the toilet! My new record for getting the toilet off and back on again is 27 minutes.

Speechless about the toothpaste flushing. In awe over what an amazing mom you are! Always praying for you and your precious family.

If she flushes tooth paste down the toilet maybe it's time for her to clean the toilet. And the sink. And the bath tub. ;)

Since it's obviously a control issue (she feels it is one of the very few things she an control) I would actively try and find more appropriate things for her to feel in control of. It doesn't have to be holding something that she can turn into something negative. My kids teachers at school had the kids make the rules for the classroom. It was brilliant. My kids came home and listed all the things they should not do. They said it was their idea. Even though the teacher obviously guides them, the kids took ownership of the rules. I would literally have a FHE about the kids making house rules. I would have one blank white poster for the rules. I would have another for the privileges they want to earn when they don't break a rule for a set period of time. If they broke a rule I would take them back to the laminated poster that shows they broke their own rule. Obviously you could take it from there on consequences. But that is what I would try next.

Hope you're getting some "me" time!

I forgot to mention, they have to do the actual writing of the rules on the poster. Even if it is a drawn picture because they cannot write the words, it has to be in their own handwriting. :)

You might want to have separate rules for each child.

Hugs to you bth. Praying that she will stop doing the toothpaste soon. Can you put a lock on the medicine cabinet? I know it's hard to change but might work.

Wow! Blossom needs a new trick. ;)

Keep your sense of humor about all this, if you can. Someday it will make for good stories in your family history. We are all rooting for you both.
