The latest question, v. 2

4 Year-Old: "Mommy, what bad things did you do when you were a kid?"

Me: "Define kid."

4 Year-Old: "Mommy."

Me: "Well... sometimes I was naughty..."

4 Year-Old (intrigued beyond standing it): "Like how?"

Me: "Let's have ice cream for desert tonight!"

4 Year-Old (too smart for that): "Mommy, how were you naughty?"

Me: "I don't know."

4 Year Old: "Yes, you do."

Toddler Haikus

Sorry for the prolonged absence...

I'm back at work (outside the home). That means I'm wearing clothes again, outside of sweat pants, I mean. A good thing.

Meantime, here are some thoughts in haiku form, which is all I have time for these days:

First day back to work
I wake to toddler vomit
Violation! My own bed.

Your small noses run
Colors defy nature
I am surely next

You hit your brother
The rescue comes too late
Teeth marks on your cheek

The rug smells of pee
It’s no fault of my body
You, without diaper.

Please submit your own Toddler Haikus!
