Dogs

We received a letter from the school asking us to discuss Austins behavior with him. Apparently he was walking on the back of a kids shoes and that kid retaliated by kneeing him in the tailbone. This type of middle school move has the name of Corn dogging. Have you ever heard anything so wacky. I have been laughing everytime it is said in the discussion about what happened. I am laughing just writing this,

Corn dogging. What all the cool kids are doing these days. Who knew?

Our dogs has started to be super agressive with the girl and her food. He is just taking it from her and she is starting to get really pissed. She grabs his collar, his fur, hits him, screams at him and just plain attacks him. I am afraid she is going to get bit. He almost bit me today when I was after him for taking her food. It isn't like he doesn't have a dish out. I'm hoping this doesn't get too out of control. But she still likes to give him treats.

Day 2 of potty training was a nightmare. She fought tooth and nail not to sit on the toilet. I had even stretched the time to an hour apart. I made the mistake of trying to finish something as it was approaching the hour mark and sure enough she peed her pants. Then after lunch she just plain would not sit on the toilet. I didn't want to force it too much. I put a pull up on over her underwear so we could go for a walk; it was gorgeous out. I tried to get her to go at the library, since she usually like to check out other bathrooms, but she wasn't falling for that one and peed her pants somewhere on our walk. She napped dry and had a meltdown after the nap, but went on the potty. She was pissed about it and screamed for an hour. It was fun here for a while. I'm about to take her up for a bath hopefully it will go ok.

How funny that the school would ask you to talk to your son simply because he was stepping on the back of some kid's shoes. We used to do that sort of thing all the time as kids. And mostly to our friends. Who knew it had a name? ;)
Good luck on the potty training!

omg I am having pt flashbacks. Like the time Em peed in the dollar store and I had to exit quickly before anyone saw us... She was crying and peeing all over me as we fled the scene.

They have so many accidents and then wham its all normal one day.

Good Luck! I feel for you!

Corn Dogging huh? *L* Ah kids are wonderful.

I know it's not "funny" per say but it's funny that PB fights back. Our dog Molly has that terrible habit of jumping up and stealing food right out of the kids' hands. Drives me NUTS. K-Girl screams at her when she does it and E-Man just starts crying but I guess *luckily* neither of them go after her to try to get it back or even the score.

Good luck with potty training. My daughter was too easy. It makes me fear training my son. ;)
