I went upstairs for a moment to get a cup to put in the dishwasher. DS #2 (who had literally JUST awaken from his 2 hr nap) decided he needed to visit his bathroom downstairs while I ran upstairs. This COMPLETE narrative occurred in the time it took him to simply go pee-pee in the potty … and not flush.
DS #2 (entering the bathroom): Mama, where are you?
Mama, I am in the bathroom.
Mama, I am going pee-pee.
I have puppy with me. My puppy needs to poop in the potty.
I need a snack.
And juice. Lots of juice. Ok, Mama????
Mama, “DS #1” and “DD” and “DS #3” are sleeping. Maybe not “DS #1”. “DS #1” is awake.
Puppy just pooped, Mama.
Mama, that wind is blowing.
Mama, I need my book.
Mama, where is Daddy?
Where is Mr. BW?
Is he playing with his cows?
What is for dinner tonight?
Mama, I need chocolate.
Maybe some Froot Loops like this morning.
What are we doing tonight, mama?
Are we going grocery shopping?
Mama, BUY CHOCOLATE.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, MAMA, DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU NEED TO MAKE KINSEY’S CHOCOLATE CAKE FOR HER BIRTHDAY????????
I NEED some chocolate cake.
Can I do some more zebra coloring?
Zebra starts with Z.
DS #2 (leaving the bathroom): Mama, ARE YOU DONE YET????????????? I need to tell you something when you come down here. Hey, let’s do dishes!
What he doesn’t know is that I SAT DOWN upstairs and wrote down all of his narrative. Seriously. We worried that he would never speak.
