This is a "Jaina" post so yes, it will involve lots of bodily functions. Consider yourself warned. :)
Last month, she had the stomach flu for the first time. She woke up in the middle of the night....Her bed was a mess. She was a mess. She touched my bed so it was a mess. Donald did at least four loads of laundry that night. She couldn't even keep water down. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep....She threw up 10 times in 12 hours. It was awful. At noon the next day she took a nap and woke up much better and was able to keep sips of water, pedialyte and a few crackers down. It took her a few days to fully recover...
"Can I take a bath? Say 'yes' mama!"
"Can I have an apple? Say 'yes' mama!"
She calls Dennis "Jennis"
Donald found Jaina staring into the toilet.
"Jaina what are you doing?"
"I'm just smelling Ava's poop!"
"Jaina I see your cute bum!"
"My bum is not cute! It does not talk! It toots in the toilet!"
Dennis was snoring in the chair.
"Jennis! Stop saying pig!"
"Mama, you're my best friend ever."
"Mama, you're the best mama ever!
She's really having hard time with certain aspects of potty training. She feels like she needs to go but when she can't, she won't sit there and wait.....by the time she can go, she isn't fast enough to get to the bathroom.
Dry nights are hit and miss....if she wears a pull up she's dry. If she wears her underwear, she has an accident.
Our latest hurdle has been a week of diarrhea. She doesn't act sick...she doesn't have a fever...she eats and plays like she normally does. Hopefully it clears up soon.
"Your food is moving your ears!" (chewing)
"Jaina, lets take a bath."
"That's a great idea!"
"I love your purple underwear, Jen! I love your white hair, Jen!"
Oh, the honesty of children.
Jen took her to the bathroom while swimming and she was shivering....
Jen asked, "Are you cold, honey?"
Jaina said, "Yes, I am. Are you cold, honey?"
"Does God go poop?"
"Who's your best friend Jaina?"
"Jen. Jennis and Jen. Jennis thpanked me yike dis (demonstrates spanking) and I freamed (screamed) at Jennis."
"Do you wuv my golden hair?"
"Is dat police car gonna thpank me?"
Her favorite song to sing is "Have I Told You Lately that I Love You?"
She loves her new Bible and sings, "Tell Me the Story of Jesus."
I love having conversations with this girl and I appreciate how easy going she is about most things.
