Wiping My Bottom
When I was a little boy my mum used to help me to wipe my bottom. It's hard for little boys to wipe their own bottom. But it is easy for big boys to do it.
I don't like wiping my bottom, because I am afraid I might get poo on my hands.
Sometimes I wait too long before going to the toilet. Then I mess my pants and it smells horrible.
My mum will give me some disposable gloves to use when I wipe my bottom. Then I will not have to touch the poo.
I will try to go to the toilet when I need to at school and at home.
I will put on the gloves before I touch the toilet paper.
