Toilet Talk

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

women's restroom signWhen we were at the mall, my daughter asked about the “special” trash cans in the stall of the women’s restroom. I explained that they were for disposing of sanitary napkins. Later, while opening a hand sanitizing wipe before lunch at the food court, she asked, “Is this a sanitary napkin?”

girl pintingMy husband was working with our daughter  on some basic spelling. He’d say a word, spell it for her, and then repeat the word. This went on and on as usual until he came to the word “up.” He said, “Up. ‘U-P.’ Up.” To which, Lyla very quickly replied, “No, Daddy. I pee down.”

boy scared of shotMy son was nervous about going to the doctor for abdominal pain, so I explained to him the importance of doctors and how they help make us feel better. He turned to me and said, “Mom, you know I have an irrational fear of doctors.”
