Maddie: A Conversation with Herself

[Scene: Madeleine standing in the corner in the kitchen. Riely is in his seat at the table, watching me cut up broccoli. Maddie is muttering to herself.]

M: Poop.
[clearly doing some work]
M: Ouchy poop!
[more work]
M: Push the poop! Push the poop! Push the poop!
[poop pushing continues]
[and continues]
[and continues]
[and then, much clapping of hands]
M: Yay Maddie! Yay Maddie!

Such a self-sufficient girl. Gives her own pep talks and everything.

Completely hilarious.

Get that girl a potty! My oldest was a go-getter like that, I explained how the toilet caught the poopies and she was all into learning a new skill. She was 14 months old when she started.

Now I know what I have to look forward to. Boo just turns bright red, puts his legs up in the air and grunts. Then he smiles. Then I need to get him to the changing table before I choke on the stink.

Maddie, what a riot!
