daughter is 6 years 2 months. Totally healthy, athletic, playful, sporty, awesome.
She poops... a lot. And somehow (not sure how) it became a joke for her to poop on command. I think it was about a month ago she'd pooped 3x in one day and at the MOST inconvenient times. I joked that if she pooped before bed (to ensure she'd be down for the night and not getting up a million times) I'd give her a dollar. And she did. On command, immediately. A perfectly formed poop. And now she does it often, no longer for cash (as we put the stop to that) but to prove her point or shock/awe us all.
Considered calling pediatrician but.... ehhh... Is this a physical or mental thing? If we ignore it will it disappear like all weird phases do?

LOL! I wish my dau could do that. She has the opposite problem, so when she does go, she could put most men to shame! :p
