Pod, Part 3

October 23rd, 2010

Several months ago Katya told me,
“I have to go pod. Pod…that’s how you say ‘potty’ in Spanish.”

It’s also been a month or 2 or 3 since she started wearing underpants at night. She had occasionally been asking to do so for quite some time but it took me forever to get a waterproof sheet. Extreme readiness = zero accidents and zero interest in diapers. Oh, cloth diapers, I will miss you so! On the other hand, after 2-2 1/2 years of pooping pretty much exclusively in potties, Katya does suddenly have a little fear of pooping now. I am sure it will pass soon. (No pun intended.)

Lately at random times with no noticeable reason Katya will ask me what various animals eat. When I told her what flies eat, she gave me the “You Are So Pulling My Leg” look. Today we were hanging out by the goats at the apple farm when a fly flew by her. “Hello Poop eater!” she called out, “What are you doing?”

The Poop Compromise

October 8th, 2010

Setting: My car, 5 PM, on the way home after an entire afternoon spent at the park

A: You want some carrot, or snap peas, or red pepper?
K: No
A: (crunches on one of these vegetables)
K: NO! IT’S MINE!
A: OK, I won’t eat any more.
K: SPIT IT OUT! IT’S MINE!
A: Honey, I brought the veggies for you, but I bought them, and I cut them up, for our whole family. They are yours and mine and Daddy’s.
K: SPIT IT OUT! IT’S MINE!
A: I can’t, I swallowed it. I’d have to barf it up. Do you rememer when you barfed?
K: Yeah
A: You didn’t like barfing at all. So you understand why I don’t want to barf it up.
K: BARF IT UP! BARF IT UP!
A: Would you be willing to wait a little longer and let me poop it out instead?
K: OK.
A: OK, I’m digesting as hard as I can right now so I can poop your veggies back out soon.
K: (sniffles)
