Perfeck and Creem, of course.

Before you read the following funny conversation you should probably know that –
1. We have been accident-free for well over a week now, A. is doing great with the potty! (Still use a pull-up at night, though.)

2. We have a heating vent right next to the toilet in the bathroom downstairs. It is really nice on chilly mornings.

3. Yes, it has been chilly enough for a heater (at least in the mornings) this week, even in California.

Oh, and also, if a toddler who just stripped all of her pjs and pull-up off and says “have to go potteeee” while running to the bathroom, you should stop reading your email and follow her in there. Pronto.

A: Mommy. I need hep (help). Pleeease. Need hep.
M: Okay, A. I’m coming.

(As I’m walking through the playroom, is that water I can hear? Think to myself, “maybe she used the stool and got up on the toilet by herself.” See as I come into bathroom, that is not the case. She is standing right next to the toilet looking horrified as she pees down her leg, on the floor. Quickly put her up on the toilet.)

M: I’m so sorry, honey. It’s okay, that is Mommy’s fault for not getting in here faster.
A: Is okay, Mommy. Don’t worry.

(I must say this to them all the time, it is our mantra around here, “It’s okay. Don’t worry.)

A: Mommy, you clean up my pee-pee?
M: Yes, I am. Hold on just a second and I’ll clean you up, too.
A: Is okay, Mommy. I dry my own foot. Yook
(Look)! Is all nice an dry and creem (clean)! That’s perfeck (perfect)!

She had her foot in front of the heater and was “drying” it off.

A perfeckly creem foot. It’s okay. Don’t worry.

    Care, all I have to say — what a priceless and timeless piece of documenting you are creating by keeping this blog. Imagine the laughter and tears you will experience as you relive all of this 20 or more years down the road. Sigh — they grow so quickly!

    Ah… so resourceful! Good news….urine is sterile. Nothing to worry about. 🙂

    How precious!
    It’s okay – don’t worry! I love it.

    By the way, between you and NBC’s new “green initiative,” I actually remembered to take my GIANT reusable IKEA bags to the grocery store today. I got the strangest looks. But I am SOO glad that I will not have a million little plastic bags to clean up after I put away the groceries…..I think I saved an entire plastic tree. : )

    Saw a great tidbit that said “Eat vegetarian one day a week.” Apparently this saves LOTS of energy – on cooking? Processing the food before we get it? I don’t know but it is supposed to help!

    LOL! Wait til she tries using one of those air dryers in the public bathrooms…she’ll be in heaven. Purfeck and creem in no time!

    I have so been there with being a little too late. At least now I know she is just being lazy because she can get on the potty sans stool 95% of the time. That other 5% of mommy help I can do though. 🙂 It’s better than the 100% before.

    I have to agree with Kimmer, that saving these sayings will be so enjoyable later on. But beyond that, getting them down verbatim as you do adds so much for us to enjoy right now too.
    Loved your account of Emma asking about the trip earlier, and how it was written all in one breath. Thanks for keeping us posted.

    LOL! Now that the television writers are on strike, some tv exectuvie is going to stumble across your blog and steal all your funy little stories for his sitcom!
    A’s quite the resourceful little gal!

    Love the stories and how you retell them to us, your faithful readers. Aren’t moments like these wonderful? Oh how I love Motherhood and all that it brings to my life.
