Ohhhh, what a week. Here are some choice moments, from my crazy household to yours.
The Threenager, running to the potty: I feel like I have to pee!
Me: That’s great! Go pee! Go pee!
The Threenager: I want to watch a show while I’m peeing.
The Husband: Why don’t you try peeing first, and then we can talk about watching a show?
The Threenager: But I want to watch while I’m peeing! That’s my plan.
The Threenager (sitting on the potty, having watched an episode of fucking Caillou): I want to watch another.
Me: No. Remember? We decided you would play with some toys after this show.
The Threenager: No. I did not to-cide anything.
The Threenager: Look! I fastened the seatbelts on my snowpants by myself!
Me: Do you want some eggs?
The Threenager: No, I just want THE YOLK.
Me, cutting away some yolk and putting on fork: Here you go.
The Threenager: THERE’S EGG ON IT!!
Me: …Well…yes, yolk is egg…but it’s just yolk…
The Threenager: NO! I don’t want EGG, I want YOLK!!
The Husband: Okay, let me get you some without any egg on it *pretends to get a new piece* There! How’s that?
The Threenager: Good. Thank you.
The Threenager: Here! Have some sausage.
Me: No thank you! I’m not hungry.
The Threenager: Please? Can you have a piece of my sausage?
Me: No, that’s alright. But thank you for offering!
The Threenager: NO! You need some protein.
Me, sending photo of baby C almost crawling: Look! He’s almost there! Can you believe it?
The Husband: Did you empty the potty (pictured in the background)?
Me: OF COURSE I DID. *runs to empty potty*
