Toddler Distractions

Picture from Mother’s Day 2011. SoHo.

It’s been so hot here, that I’ve given in, and allowed O to wear dresses. Normally, I don’t want her wearing dresses to school because she won’t be able to run around. But the last few days I’ve given in to her requests. Yesterday, she picked out this dress that is a little old, so I was OK with her wearing it.  She was super excited! And she shocked me by the following statement. Mommy, do you member? I wore this when we went out to dinner with you, me, Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa??  (It was brunch, and it was mother’s day 2011.  Serious memory!!)

But then she had a slight conundrum. Mommy, how do I go peepee?  Well, you lift your dress, and pull down your underwear. Ooohhhh… I have to go peepee.  Okay.  (At this point she lifts up her dress, in the living room, and starts walking to the bathroom).  But then she gets distracted by TV, as a commercial for Pixar’s Brave comes on.  She watches it, with her dress still up around her weist. Mommy, I didn’t see that.  Did I see that, Mommy?  No, you haven’t.  Can I see that, Mommy?  We’ll talk about it.  Don’t you have to go peepee?  Noooo! and laughs.

5 minutes later. Mommy, I have to go peepee!  Ok.

By the way, I’m not sure if you are aware, but there is  Monsters Inc 2, the Prequel coming out next year. O will lose her Shit!
