Out Of the Mouth of Babes

Written by Stinni on Thursday, March 13, 2008

My daughter has been sick for the past week. Her voice is hoarse. Over breakfast, my daughter was talking about something and my son said, "Your voice isn't nice. You need antennas." You know, to become clear like a radio station in the car.

My daughter is three and still in diapers. We were sitting in the living room and I was explaining to her how she was a big girl now and she shouldn't be in diapers. "Your father doesn't wear diapers, your brother doesn't wear diapers, I don't wear diapers..." My son chimed in, "Yes you do. They're called Always."

Early morning, I woke up and was channel surfing. I came across The Omen 4. My children came into the room and saw a nun character. My daughter said, "She has a necklace like Desta!" (Desta is our housekeeper.) My son said, "Oh yeah, it's a Gee-ZAHS necklace." "Gee-ZAHS?" "Yeah, Gee-ZAHS, it's a Gee-ZAHS necklace." "Who's Gee-ZAHS?" "He's like Allah, he makes people. Do you know him?" "Yes I do."

    Pearls - My son was out of diapers at around 4 but it took him much longer than that for him to learn to do #2 in the toilet. We still have problems in that area at 6 but you've been to my other blog so you know all about that.

    The good news is that at 3-1/2, my daughter is finally out of diapers. I've learned to not push them until they're ready. I've also noticed that you can sort of negotiate and explain things better with a girl. Boys are more stubborn in those areas.

    A few weeks ago, I took off her diaper and told her that she had to stay naked until she went to the bathroom. She was mortified, of course, so I said that I would put underwear on but there were absolutely no more diapers in her future. She peed like 5 times in her pants but she finally got it.

    Oh, and one of her aunties who she hardly sees sort of embarrassed her at a family get-together. "Whhyyyyyyy?! You arrrrrrre big girl now!!! Why you still in pampers?!?! No, no, you must go to the bathroooooom!"


    Patience. :)
