Kids say the darnedest things ...

December 4, 2008 - Betsy Bethel
It's interesting how the mind of a 2-year-old -- at least my 2-year-old -- works.

The other day, we were on our way home from the Good Zoo (a great holiday outing, by the way), and as we pulled into the driveway, Emma piped up from the back seat: "I wonder if she still has a boo-boo."

"Who?" my husband and I said in stereo.

"Lucy," Emma said.

Lucy is our new cat, who was spayed a couple weeks ago and has stitches. Dave and I looked at each other with that now all-too-common expression that is a combo of bemusement and exasperation.

"Yes," Dave said. "But she's getting better." I agreed. Then Dave asked Emma: "Where did that come from?"

Emma replied: "From the doctor, silly!"

Over the holiday weekend, Emma and I did a bang-up job getting her potty-trained. It's a great feeling to know I'm saving 33 cents per Pull-Up! The initial savings is being poured into incentives for the prize/treat bag, but it is soooooo worth it!

Anyway, on Saturday, when she pooped in the potty for the first time in a loooong time, I praised her up and down. She excitedly looked between her legs into the toilet bowl and said, "Look! It's a mommy and a baby!"

I laughed 'til I cried!

This morning, Dave, Emma and I were saying our goodbyes as Dave headed to work. Emma, having finished breakfast, asked if she could watch something on TV (a video/DVD). I said, "Well, I have to go upstairs and take a shower."

She promptly took my robe in her hand, put it up to her nose and sniffed.

"No, you're fine," she stated.

Please add your stories -- I never get tired of hearing them!
