please explain! please explain!

since i spend a significant amount of time with the pt (my t being for 'terror'), and therefore am the honored sounding-board for most of her widsom (quote: WHAT?), my father asked me to write up some of the more memorable conversations. i stalled for a few months, but after today's trip to the park, i think it might even be therapeutic.

as we were walking home, we passed a kid i used to babysit. he waved across the street and called, 'hi perel!', thus making the sad mistake of calling attention to himself and becoming a blip on the pt radar.

'WHAT?' the pt squawks. 'he knows your NAME?'

'who, moishe? yeah. he's my friend.'

'but he's not your age,' she pointed out.

'no, he's not. but i used to babysit for him.'

'WHAT? you mean you used to live at his house?'

'no! i used to watch him when his parents weren't home.'

'his parents left him home alone?'

there's just no good way to end these kinds of conversations, so i usually just distract her. 'oh look! we're almost home! and then you can have a popcycle. maybe you should start walking faster.'

'yeah, but not until i go to the potty.'

'right. we'll go to the potty and THEN you can have your popcycle.'

'yeah, but...it's too bad my pishy came out already.'

'your...yonina, you know you're supposed to wait until you get to the potty!'

'yeah, but my pishy doesn't care.'

'you didn't even tell me you had to go the potty!'

'yes i did!'

'no you didn't! when?'

'when we were walking HOME!'

if anybody wants me, i'll be in bed with a half-melted popcycle on my forehead.

well, sickle had sick in it, and sicle is like something you chop wheat with - plus sicle cell anemia is spelled that way and that's bad. cycle, on the other hand, makes me think of unicycles, which are funny. plus, you will note that it is YOUR windshield in danger anyway.
the defense rests.

Our four year old still sometimes doesn't quite make it to the potty.

I make it to the potty every time, but get much less praise for this than I'd like. It's the trap of raised expectations.

"I make it to the potty every time, but get much less praise for this than I'd like."

Give it a couple of years.

Hey the beauty of IBS is that I fear that the day I do not make it is coming sooner than later.

Many funny stories about my racing to get there. Let me tell you, if you see a 230 pound racing at full speed to the toilet, for your own safety do not get in the way.

oy.

If the whole PT/Mrs. Balabusta family is this funny around the dinner table, it's a wonder any of you can stop laughing long enough to eat. :)

Perel, that was a stitch! Welcome to the comedy club. :)

PsychoToddler said...

Yeah, Friday night dinner at the PT home is quite a riot, but you need a deep appreciation for Homestar Runner.

Homestar Runner? Who? (Or as Yonina is wont to say, "WHAT?" :) )(Sigh.) My age is showing again.
