It was dinner time early last week. Alice, as always, hopped out of her seat approximately 90 seconds into the meal and loudly declared, “I have to go potty!”
Time passed. Lots and lots of time. During this time, many rather un-toilet-related sounds were coming from the bathroom. Singing, talking. . .
Then more singing. . .
And lots more talking. . .
Eventually, I decided to go in. Seriously, how long can it take for a skinny four-year-old to empty her bladder?
The Mama: What are you up to, Alice?
Alice: I was just doing my business. I just put that (points to a toy flagpole from her pirate ship) in the tub, and took that (points to a floating magnet block toy) out, and took out that boat (points to boat with attached balloon “motor”), and blew it up a few times, and put it back in, and . . .
Yes, Alice. You were clearly just doing your business.
