My 2-year-old daughter has started telling me her tummy hurts or her tummy is full whenever she doesn't want to do something she doesn't want to do, like pick up her toys. She especially does this at night when it is her father's turn to finish the bed time routine. The first few times I believed her, but now I really think she's using it just as an excuse. She has a huge appetite and poops regularly. I'm a working mom but I try to spend as much time as possible with my 4-year-old and 2-year-old as possible. I can't tell if she's telling the truth or not wit the stomach thing. When I don't fall for it, she'll cry and throw a tantrum. When I show concern for it, she'll just smile and run away to play or ask for a cookie. I don't just want to wholly chalk this up to her wanting attention if there is a chance she may be sick. She's too young to understand the Boy Who Cried Wolf Story. What should I do?
