She's not a pooper...but she sure knows how to wheel and deal

Well, the potty training has been going unusaully well for us the last 5 1/2 weeks. Only a handful of accidents really and the Queen is now telling me when she has to go or just going on her own. However, I need to clarify that she only willingly goes pee, pooping...now that's a whole other ballgame. We have to sit on the potty in front of the TV and have some snacks and some milk. And pray that in 30 minutes, there are remnants in the potty to prove that we have been there for the last 1/2 hour. Typically, there is not, and it ends up being an emergent situation in which I am rushing her over to the potty and BAM! there we have it.
Well, today, Herself decides that she needs to negotiate prior to giving us what we want. It has been almost a week now and I will be stopping at the store for some prune juice and some laxitives for this child. Unless she gets her way....either way, there WILL be poop in the potty tonite. My mom has had her sitting on the potty the majority of the day. Caitlyn looks at her and says she just can't do it. Then quizzically looks at Grandma and says, "If I go poop on the potty, will you buy me 'The Princess and the Pauper?'" (new Barbie movie) My mom, thinking that this is ever so cute, agrees. Caitlyn then tells her, "But I am not going to go poop here, I have to do it at home. I will have Mommy call and tell you that I pooped so that you can buy me the movie."
Nix on the scientist idea....I think she may be a lawyer????
