Adventures of "Rubber Doggie"

Rubber Doggie attended preschool last week.  He spit on her.  Then, she said something about him pooping?!!!These are two issues we've been working on: no spitting and no accidents.  Maybe she's trying to work all this out through rubber doggie?!!
Thankfully, rubber doggie hasn't started fake burping yet.  My 3 year old decided this was fun after hearing it from a friend.  Someone recommended to ignore this behavior.  Well, with my strong willed child that escalated her behavior to such a level that I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!  When my child looks me straight in the eye and fake burps, that is something I can't ignore. We started discussing yesterday what big girls do and don't do, which included no fake burping.  She was in a time out last night for 1 fake burp.   
**Result: no fake burping at breakfast this morning. I'd say we have a victory at the moment! I realize we will still have to work on this behavior, but any progress is reason to celebrate for this optimist :)
