I had a long day at work and Swee'pea and I got home late. The last few hours of work were especially stressful and I was still keyed up. I was too tired and wired to cook and I didn't want to wait for Sugar D to cook, so I suggested dinner out. Sugar D was unsure... Swee'pea was clearly cranky and tired, not always the best combination in a restaurant.
So I asked Swee'pea, "Do you want to go our for dinner?"
He replied, "Noni dow nono djussss mommy, daddy day da mome!"
[translation: I want to go out with JUST mommy, daddy stay at HOME!"
(He tolerated Sugar D just fine -- except for insisting that "just mommy" help him wash his hands -- and we had a very nice meal out and I feel MUCH more myself now.)
Later, fresh out of the bath, Swee'pea announced he had to pee.
"Pee mommy dow!" [Pee coming out!]
Not long ago he said that and it was shockingly true. Lately, though, he says it when he WANTS pee to come out.
Tonight, I whispered to Sugar D that I don't really believe Swee'pea anymore when he says that. Except that the expression on his face looks kind of like he actually is peeing.
Then I noticed a little fountain rising out of the potty and onto the floor.
I guess now is the time to introduce the penis down rule.
