Last week at Pumpkin's 3-1/2 year check up, we talked to the doctor about her unwillingness to do #2 in the toilet, and entertained the possibility that being constipated was a contributing factor. Since it is impossible to get Pumpkin to eat food that isn't beige in colour, we were told to give her a particular laxative product that contains mineral oil, which would get things moving more easily. My recommendation: DON'T DO THIS! I'm not going to describe to you the subsequent events after a week of spiking her juice with this product, but you can refer to the title of this post and draw your own conclusions if you feel so inclined. All I will say is that doing the kind of laundry that I am doing right now does not exactly endear Pumpkin to me all that much right now.
