Tuesday Toddler Tales
A conversation with my daughter today...
Emily: "Mama, I did not let the poo poo come out"
Me: "What? Emily, do you need to poo poo?"
Emily: "No, mama, I can hold it in"
Me: "Uh, no. RUN to the bathroom!!!"
Emily: (sitting on the toilet) "Mama, I can not poop, I can only hold it in"
Me: "That's not a good idea, honey, holding our poo poo in can make us have a tummy ache"
Emily: (moaning) "Yeah, I have a tummy ache all day!"
Me: (groaning) "Oh, no, really?!? Can you please try to push it out now, while we are on the potty? I will have to take you to the doctor if you don't"
Emily: (crying) "Okay, mama, I will poo poo so you won't be sad"
Me: (desperately trying not to laugh) "Thank you, Emily, I'm so proud of you"
And... she pooped! And all was right with the world again! :)
