Tiny Talk Tuesday

While reading the story of Jairus and his sick little daughter...

A:  "They didn't have an ambulance."


Patrick and Adeline playing hide and seek...

A:  1, 2, 3, ..........10!!!  Ready or not, here I come!!!  Are you in the closet?  Nooooo.  Are you under the table?  Noooo...  (daddy gives a running commentary of where he's looking so she won't get bored, so that's how she plays too).  Are you under the bench?  Nooooo....  Are you under here?  (as she bends down to look under our entertainment center....about two inches of space under there).  precious.

Me:  Adeline, you are going to be three soon.  You need to keep practicing peeing in the potty.  You are going to be a big girl like Amelie, and Violet, and Anna.  You need to stay dry so you can wear big girl panties like them.

A:  and wear big girl panties like mommy?

Me:  Yes, like mommy.

A:  and like Linus?

Me:  No, Linus is a boy.  He doesn't wear panties, but he is learning to use the potty like you.

A:  Like Mrs. Salada?

Me:  uh huh

A:  and Mr. Salada wears big girl panties.

Me:  trying not to lose all sense of composure....  No, Mr. Salada is a man.  He wears underwear.

Head to Mary's for more Tiny Talkers.

Mr Salada would probably get a good laugh out of that conversation!

Oh the potty and pantie conversations...LOL! I can't tell you how many times poor D has been told to get on panties...habits die hard :)

Jen said...

LOL at that last one - I can't really relate since we don't have discussions about panties with having only boys. Maybe that will change with the arrival of baby #3! Good luck with the potty training! :)
