Conundrum, I call you Preschooler

Syd (to me, 2 seconds after I've sat down at the table to feed her brother and myself): "Mama! I needa go potty! Please! Come take me potty!"

Me (to my daughter, who is fully capable of taking herself potty, but will only do so at preschool. WTH): "Mama just sat down! If you go potty all by yourself, you'll get a special surprise treat* when you come out!"

*I have no idea what the "special surprise treat" will be.

Syd (hands clenched firmly in her crotch, doing the potty dance): "What is the treat? Mama! Tell me what is the surprise!!"

Me: "You'll find out when you come back from going potty ALL BY YOURSELF!"

Syd: "Mama! You needa come with me!"

Me (in a brilliant revelation): "Candy corn! You can have THREE pieces of candy corn!!"

Syd: (runs off to the bathroom!)

Me: (brings bite of cereal halfway to my mouth)

Syd: (screaming from bathroom) "MAMA! You NEEDA COME HERE! I MADE A BIG MESS!"

Me: (mopping pee off the bathroom floor while my cereal gets soggy. FAIL.)

    Yes, Kalena also wants me to take her potty all the time even though she is fully capable. This, after a phase of “I DO IT MYSELF!!” It’s obnoxious.
