To put on my knight's outfit and attack my DM with a sword because she said 4 is old enough to wipe my own bottom?

I have a good arrangement with my DM, DF, DSis, DBs and indeed any other random people in the locality. I do a poo, they wipe me very nicely while I do a perfectly executed downward dog yoga position in the bathroom as my helpful contribution to the process. So far this has worked well as a hygiene strategy.

Only today things changed.

My DM offered instruction in how to rip off loo paper, how to fold loo paper, and how to reach my arm behind so I can wipe my own bottom. Then she told me to get on with it.

I was disgusted.

Poo is smelly and stinky, I told her, so this should be her job. My arms are too short.

She just laughed and told me to get on with it again.

I was not having that, so I put my entire foam knight's outfit on, got on my hobbyhorse and went into the sitting room armed with my foam sword to teach her a lesson. I was very cross. I rubbed my sword on her neck quite hard.

She just laughed and told me my bottom slaves were not going to do this for me any more. Sword or no sword.

Any amount of crying and protesting failed to work. I am concerned this neglect will continue. WWYD? WIBU?

Lol. Holly here aged 5 londonrach is my aunt. she seemed shocked when i needed my bottom wiped and havent repeated the experience. Need to talk to my uncle about this as need some cousins... Little boffin why would you want to ruin your nice pretty pants and not wipe. I was so pleased to leave nappies behind to get to choose my pants every morning. I have a special drawer and even have some peppa pigs ones. They go nicely under my different princesses clothes. Why a knight outfit when you can be spider or a snowman or a princesses. Outfit changes every half a hour with christmas day or friend visiting ever 10 minutes.... Dm fails to understand why id rather put something else one instead of playing but my friend not see new outfit. Pink and red so go together and fail to see why londonrach said it didnt. Who said they keep something on for a week.....why..theres so much to try on....

I simply cannot believe all you lot. you really need to pull yourselves together and grow up.

I have been wiping my own bottom since I was about 2. It really isn't that hard.

Although I may have been much more advanced than you lot due to my Dear M's commitment to Elimination Communication. I have been continent since I was 3 weeks old.

Independence is a wonderful thing.

There's no pleasing these mummies sometimes! When I learned to wipe my own bottom, I told my Mummy that I didn't need her any more and it was lucky because she'd be dead, soon, anyway.

She got a bit upset. You'd have thought she'd be proud that I could cope on my own at 4, but no! confused

Oooooh you are all giving me lots of ideas! I still have to wear nappies but I do like to roll over the second mummy takes my nappy off so that I can make nice pooey smears on my changing mat. I've also discovered a lovely table covered in all sorts of interesting things just within reaching distance and one day I will squirm and wriggle all the way there while mummy is trying to keep me out of the pooey smears, bwa hahahahaaaaa!

1) poo in the toy box
2) look bemused while parents hunt for source of stench
3) deny all knowledge and blame burglars/mice/ghosts when the poop is found.
4) RESULT - they will escort you to and from the loo and clean your botty forevermore

You think that you guys have problems - Sheesh!! At least you have hands wink

I'm not human, I'm a little hairy furball of a persian but I've got a few tricks for you all smile

My human mummy MUST wipe my bottom on occasions as I can't complete the task myself but sometimes a nasty lady comes and uses a noisy device in my bum area to remove my hair sad

Anyway,to get my revenge here's what I do to annoy mummy-
When your bum's not fully clean, go naked from the waist down and sit on the floor, open your legs and place your hands in front of you then proceed to drag your little arse across the floor/carpet, do it quickly and cover as much space as you can for maximum effect.

Rubbing naked bum on the side of the sofa or on mum's leg will guarantee a reaction too.

Good luck my little human friends, I hope you win your battles smile

Well I have worked out that SOME people in this family will do the decent thing and wipe me, but MUMMY is the mean one who makes me do it all by my own now my arms are long enough. Although getting poo all down my legs and stuck to my ankles just before setting off for school has hopefully provided a disincentive to future wiping exhortations.

I have only got one sticker since Sunday.

Three stickers now and counting.
Seven more to my comic.
I am a knight that says 'OK then'

I did announce at one stage I hated them all, EVEN Daddy.
