A Potty-Time Conversation

Filed under: funny — by Lex on May 5th, 2008 @ 10:56 pm

After dinner each night, Anya sits on the potty. If her potty trip is to be followed by a bath (it usually is), potty time usually occurs naked. (That is, she’s naked. Lauren and I are normally clothed.)

Tonight, Lauren was at the eye doctor, so it was just Anya and me during potty time. Anya developed an obsession with being held while going potty — an obsession Lauren and I are trying to break her of. So, instead, I gave her a quick kiss on the cheek and then sat down near her. (I don’t kiss too many people as they sit on the potty, but she’s an exception.)

After a moment or two, Anya turned her face and pointed to the other cheek.

Anya: Kiss other cheek? Kiss other one cheek?
Daddy: Of course I’ll kiss your other cheek! He does.
Anya: Thinks for a moment, then points. Kiss belly, too!
Daddy: Sure I’ll kiss your belly! He does.
Anya: Thinks for slightly longer this time. She points. Kiss vagina, too!
Daddy: Um… no. No, I don’t think so.
Anya: Kiss vagina PLEASE!
Daddy: I think we’re all done on the potty. Want to take a bath?

She got her bath. And I promised I would immediately forget that the conversation ever took place.

What conversation?

    Hahaha– what a hoot! Kids + genitalia = the perfect recipe for THE darndest things they say!

    My little man, upon learning that I do not possess a wee-wee like he does, once offered to make me one. As someone else put it: that really takes arts & crafts to a whole new dimension!
