This Is My Thursday

Well..... I thought it was all going very nicely today. A good nights sleep was had by all, we got out of the house without too many tantrums and then met up with Other Half and an old friend for a lovely lunch. 

Old friend does not have children yet but I think he might aspire to one day in the not too distant future. Pity he wasn't here whilst I stood in the kitchen chopping up a melon just now. I think the conversation went something like this but forgive me if it's not word for word as I'm still a little traumatised.

Small Child: "Mummy I need a wee"
Me: "Off you go upstairs then and give me a shout if you need me"
Small Child: "OK"

Long pause....

Small Child: "Mummy......"
Me: "Yes?"
Small Child: "There's something really heavy in my pants"

The nappy days weren't that long ago but I'll tell you this much....I really don't miss them!

Awwww, bless. I'm so pleased my girls are old enough to attend to their own toileting.

Yes, isn't it fun. At least it was at your house.

Oh no! That's actually really funny, unless you are there at the scene, then I imagine it is not funny at all and really quite messy. No, I don't miss those times either although my 5 year old still makes me go up to the toilet with her. The sooner that stage is finished the better!

Home Office Mum said...

Lovely. Just what you need to brighten up your day.

Ha ha! We're going through the toilet training process at the moment. Wees are fine but poos are a different matter. We have lots of incidents like you described. The best was yesterday in Pumpkin Patch - "Mummy, I've done a poo" followed by putting her hands in her pants and showing me some of the contents whilst announcing "dirty, yukky poo poo" to the whole shop. I don't think I can go back there ever again....

Oh, and to add to my last comment - daughter just appeared with her hands and face covered in brown stuff. Had a minor heart attack until I realised it was a chocolate digestive moment....At least your lovely daughter is past that kind of toileting moment!

Yummy Mummy said...

That just completely brightened my dismal week. God bless her!


that girl? said...

NSM - I'm so looking forward to that bit!
Susanna - I am eternally grateful for small mercies!
Rosie - Am glad that someone elses likes company on the loo. We get to discuss in depth all the poo and wee activity!
HMO - My thoughts exactly! Still it made for a good blog post!
Banana x2 - On both counts... OMG! She is so your daughter! I laughed loads when I read these. I can just imagine you dealing with this in Pumpkin Patch! Apparently I did one under the clothes rail in Dorothy Perkins when I was two! And me who loves shopping too!
YM - Bless her indeed! It was very hard getting the something heavy down into the toilet without any further mishaps, especially as she was so intent on watching very closely!
