Was this in flint??? ETA: Sorry, forgot to say I was nearly in tears (of joy!!) at your story! I loved when the dad said take those bc we have aclot of reading to do! wonderful, just wonderful. Thank you for doing it.
I didn't expect so many replies! Awesome! So it sounds like foreskin isn't likely a factor, which I kind if thought, but like I said I'd heard (er, read) that someone thought it was for her situation and wondered about a broader population.

Do YOU get UTIs? I swear I read anectodal evidence that female partners of intact men get fewer UTI. Wondering how it's played out for others. My dh is circd and I woke up with a uti this morning (yes, I peed, lol) and it got me thinking.

Just wanted to sympathize with the anger you feel. I'm like that too with the pitch my son screams at.

Maddening at times, but it's so nice too. I try and remember they will not always need or want their mom and dad snuggling with them and to savor these moments. It's a nice way to end the day.
lol, that's great! he knew he was busted!!
great news! i've been following your story and was wondering if you had come to an agreement yet. fantastic!
My 4 yo and I made a contract. It got to the point where he Was having leaking accidents several times a day. So I told him he had to sit on the potty everyday. I didn't care if he went or not, but he had to sit. I asked him what time of day he wanted to do it, and for how long. He chose after breakfast for 4 mins. I wrote it out and we both signed it. He chose where he wanted to keep it (one the fridge). We had a few grumbles in the beginning but I just said "look, see?...
