Claire, yes, wee little, precious Clairey, has discovered the fine art of teasing. The other evening, after I changed her diaper, she picked up the pee-pee laden nappy and threw it at Jenna, exclaiming, "PEE PEE!!!" and laughing like a crazed hyena. Jenna screamed and ran, so Claire picked up the pee-bomb and ran after Jenna again, this time catapulting it and hitting Jen right in the chest. "PEE PEE!!! yahahahahaaha!!!!" This went on for a while, until I decided that Jenna had had enough. Then I threw the diaper away. Who knew pee-pee diapers could be so much fun?
Last night, the little sweetie and I were snuggled in my bed, watching VeggieTales for the millionth time. Clairey looked at me, grabbed my cheeks, and as I puckered up for a smooch, she whispered, "Poo-poo ca-ca."
Claire:"Poo-poo ca-ca. Mommy poo-poo ca-ca."
Mommy:"I'm not a poo-poo ca-ca!"
Claire: "Yesth! Mommy poo-poo ca-ca!" [insane giggling]
Mommy: "NO. CLAIRE'S a poo-poo ca-ca!"
Claire: "NO, no, no! MOMMY POO-POO CA-CA!!" [more insane giggling]
Well, I knew this had to stop. That's no way for a soon-to-be-two-year-old to talk. So I fixed the problem:
Mommy: "DADDY'S a poo-poo ca-ca."
Claire: "Daddy? Daddy poo-poo ca-ca?"
Claire: "Daddy poo-poo ca-ca! Daddy poo-poo ca-ca!"
All's well that ends well.
