Too Smart for Me

September 11, 2010

I am still in unpacking mode.  It’s a pain.  I hate it. You would think with all the moves in the last eight years that I would have it down to a science.  And when you consider that I have moved into this house three times now you would think that I would have finished the task in no time.  Not so much.


I was working on the play room while the Big One was at school.  I assumed that doing it with one kiddo was much easier than doing it with two. I was putting together these wire cube thingies. They are a pain to put together, but the hold the dirt cheap Ikea boxes quite well.  And I needed my book shelves for my “office” (which is really a part of my kitchen, but that’s another story). {And just a note, those “dirt cheap” bins used to be red and blue and only 99cents  each.}


So I had moving boxes, paper, wire frames and pieces everywhere when the Little One insisted that she needed to get out of the playroom immediately.  The conversation went something like this:


Little One:  “Scuse me Momma”
FixItMommy: “Ummmm, not right this second.”
Little One:  “Momma, I need to get out.” {in an exasperated tone}
FixItMommy:  “Do you NOT see the mess in here, I cannot let you out right now.”
Little One: “UGGGHHHHH! Mooooommmmmyyyy!” {hands on her hips}
FixItMommy: “I will be done in a minute and can make you a path out.”
Little One: “But I have to go pee!!!!!”

At this point, I believe her and quickly drop what I am doing, make her a path and lead her out of the playroom.


I kid you not, the kid then looked at me, grinned and said, “I don’t fink I haf to pee Momma.”


Are you freaking kidding me? She has been potty trained for just a bit but has already figured out how to get my attention and apparently get what she wants.

    Gotta love when they use they “I need to go potty” to get what they want!! Our potty trainer likes to get out of his seat when we are at a restaurant and has figured out that the bathroom is a sure way to do it. It is hard because you don’t want to ignore it and force and accident! Little stinkers:)
