optimism, or my pee looks like glitter

Alice is four years old. Four and a half, really. Okay, technically, she is closer to five at this point, but not close enough to round up. All this is to say that she is toilet trained, and has been for a very long time. Which is why this little episode was such a surprise. Enjoy:

Alice: (hops on toilet) I have to pee! I don’t have pants or undies or anything to pee in, so I peed on the floor.

The Mama: (freezes) Really?

Alice: Yes, I peed on my rug. Let me show you.

(finishes up on the toilet, washes her hands, then escorts her still-shocked mother to her bedroom)

Alice: (pointing to the world’s smallest drop of urine) Don’t you see that little glitter? That’s my pee!

Kids really need to come with warning labels. Something like this:

  1. The Mama,
    How you made me laugh. I think this WARNING sign should be given to fraternity kids in universities… The Kidling is superb.

  2. Fortunately I have learned to read these posts after I have gone to the bathroom, or I fear the embarrassment I would cause myself. She and her mama are a daily gift of sunshine.

  3. Heehee. She’s really a fairy. Or a unicorn. One of those. I bet she would enjoy unicorn poop cookies (google it!).
    Not to be competitive or anything–but I know you enjoy a good pissing contest (har, har)–MY daughter has been known to pee DELIBERATELY and PROFUSELY on the floor during time-outs. It has happened about five times.
    Oh, she pisses me off!

  4. A little tiny drop is not so bad. One of my friends used to wake up late at night to find their son peeing against the wall – at it wasn’t a little drop. And it happened more than once. Thankfully I haven’t had any experience like this with MM.
