More Beanisms

Let's face it....two year olds say the darndedst things.

  • We pray for all the sick, including great grandpa M. So the other night Beanie asks at prayers "What the matter with Aunt Annie's dad?" And I answered that he fell and broke his hip. "Oh! Poor little guy!" she responded. I told her he wasn't little, but a big guy. And she said, "He has lots of cavities!" Go figure.

  • Beanie takes off her diaper all the time right now. It is infuriating, because she doesn't really get the underwear toilet training concept either. I have cleaned up 100 messes in the last few weeks. I don't think she's ready, but she keeps taking off her diaper so I keep asking her if she wants a diaper, a princess pull-up, or underwear. She often chooses underwear and then I keep putting her on the potty with zippo success. Anyway, this evening at bedtime I was trying to get a diaper on her. She was standing in front of me and then marched up to me, hands on her hips, and exclaimed, "I am 16 years old and I DON'T need a diaper!" Perhaps its time to lay off "The Sound of Music"!

The Bean is too much. I miss her terribly!!! I loved the 16 comment and you M are pretty funny with the line about the Sound of Music. I was gawfawing like mad. Thanks for the great chuckles and I'll pray that the Bean stops with the accidents. I think I would scratch "choices" right now and just tell her that you are through cleaning up so she MUST keep the diaper on. When she takes it off next time and puddles, give her the rags, sprays, whatever and watch HER clean it up. She's so smart if might work. Just a humble suggestion from one who TT'd 7.
