Playing with words

I hereby confess that already Punch overpowers me with words at every possible chance..so, she does not take after me in this department too.

e.g.
1. I tell her patiently and lovingly that I am your friend, you must listen to me, I will get you your favourite things etc etc and she retorts back..yes amma, you are my friend, do not scold or hit me, then I will cry no, ok

2. Punch likes shortcuts such as peeing on the floor instead of going to the bathroom when she is engrossed in seeing TV. Inspite of many reminders, she just does not listen to me..but the smart girl she is, she gets up and puts the doormat over the pee area and then comes to me and says amma, get me another dress, this dress is wet and pretends to be deaf when i ask how did it get wet.

Any special tips for me to overpower her?

LOL!!We clearly know who's the boss?hehee..
but seriously,about the toilet thing..just keep an eye on time..and remind her early..if she drinking more,get her to go more often.
About the no scolding rule-if you find a way around it..tell me too:D
I hope you guys are all settled in now!

Punch dialogues by Punch eh :)

Pattu used to refuse to pee when she is engrossed in play/ TV. I used to just shut the TV / pack her playthings. That interruption helped...try it...

Hi TP - cute - her don't hit or scold me! :) Of course not.
How old is she? Toilet training - have fun! :) I think the only way then is to time her and take her every now and then so she knows you only go in the toilet...
