FML - The follow-up

Today, I got to spend all of my time scrubbing poop off the walls and carpet because my 2-year-old decided he wanted to 'paint mama a picture.' FML

Hey OP here! First off, thanks for publishing this. It's the first one I've ever submitted. Secondly, yes he was finger painting with it as well as wiping his butt on everything in his room. We're in the middle of potty training so he thought he was helping by cleaning himself off. I also had to clean him and all of his stuffed animals up because he got it EVERYWHERE. Yes, he did get punished in an appropriate way because he's not gonna know it was wrong unless I teach him. And to the comment that I said I need to watch him better, it was while he was napping in his room. Any parent knows you can't watch your kids constantly.

#18: It's a one sentence FML, and it's possible for it to be interpreted different ways. I'm going with finger-painting, since it's taught in early childhood to promote hand-eye coordination. Most two-year-olds would know not to wipe their butt along the ground at that age.

Everyone's a critic. You can't just scrub off a masterpiece that brings beauty to the original inspiration. You know that's how Michelangelo got started. Yep, humble beginnings...

My two year old did that to. I made her help me clean it. The next time I made her clean most if it while I supervised. The third time I made her clean all if it. She didn't do it a forth time.

Let me clear up what I meant. I meant that you shouldn't put the kid in a time out but you should let the kid know that it's not appropriate to wipe shit on the walls. If the kid does it again while having knowledge of the rules, then punish the kid.
