Parenting Test

Every morning on the way to work, I listen to The Bert Show on Q100. One of their producers, Tracy, is 8 months pregnant with her first and expecting at the end of this month. This morning, the hosts played a little game with Tracy to test how well she would be as a parent and dealing with tough situations she might face in the future.

The game was to have listeners call in with funny stories or situations they have been in with their kids. Tracy then had to listen to the situation and assess how she would deal with and solve the situation. Then the listener would let her know how they dealt with the situation and see if she answered as a great parent would. Some of the stories were so funny. Some called in and asked how she would deal with a child going into a store and wanting everything in sight. Another called in and told about how her son would always scream Boobies when he saw bras and then try to lift up his mom's shirt to show her boobies....How would you deal with that?

So I thought it would be fun to play the game here on the blog...You readers being the callers and me being new mom Tracy. So here is how it works.....leave a comment with your tough kid situations or funny stories (don't leave how you solved the problem yet)...and we will see how I would deal with them....hopefully I will learn some good tricks for my future crazy situations :)

you put your one and two year old down for a nap. The younger one is in a pack and play and the older is in a toddler bed. After alittle while you stand outside the door to make sure they have gone to sleep but you still hear little noises so you open the door to tell them to lay down. But when you open the door you find both kids in the pack and play, neither have a diaper on and there is poop EVERYWHERE!!!! What do you do?
