Here is a glimpse into a conversation that happens in our home, every day. You can even omit mommy and put daddy into this conversation, sometimes. Oh, and “aye”? that is what the Princess says for “yes”. You didn’t know? She doubles as a pirate.
Mommy: Bella, why don’t you tell mommy you have to go the bathroom?
Bella: Momma, poo poo.
Mommy: It does not count after you go, while I am changing you. Oh, gross! This is disgusting. Can you please start going the bathroom on the toilet like a big girl? Babies wear diapers. Are you a baby?
Bella: No, big. Two.
Mommy: Please stop moving around, we are going to get poo poo on the carpet. BELLA! LISTEN!
Bella: Tickle. (Laughs goofy.)
Mommy: I am so sick of this. I am going to throw up.
