Only Diapers Go in the Trash!!

We have recently taught Boy 2 to throw away his own diapers. It's really cute and he even trys to say trash. He gets a kick out of it and we make a big deal over it and clap and praise him when he does it. Of course this just excites him to no end.

However - I never thought of the repercussions from this.....

He now tries to throw everything in the trash! When you don't praise him and make a big deal over it he than tries to fish it out himself. When he can't - he screams for you to come get it out and than does it all over again - just waiting for that praise!

Today I fished out of the trash - a bottle of Motrin, a bottle of Tylenol, a toothbrush holder and my cell phone case.

(And I'm not a bad mom - you're probably thinking he shouldn't of had these things to begin with - but no matter where you put things he seems to get them. As an example the other day I was in the kitchen and walked into the living room and Boy 2 was standing on the couch. I asked Girl and Boy 1 how he got there and they said he climbed. I said what?? He can't climb on something that high. Come to find out he used the dog as a stepping stool!)

Maybe the whole diaper - trash idea wasn't such a good idea after all.....

Eeeew! A toothbrush holder and a cell phone case. That makes even this seasoned mom cringe. I hope it was a DIFFERENT trash can! :)

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
