For those of you keeping score at home, we are up to 1.2 pees in the potty and 2 pees on the floor.
Not that it’s my place to tell you this, but Bambi went to Hershey, PA, over the weekend. I only mention it because I have the righteous jealousy of the girl who got left behind when all the other cool kids went to the prom. I. So. Want. To go there. (Since I didn’t go with her, Bambi did the next best thing and brought ME a giant Hershey’s Kiss, which I am considering melting into the bathtub and rolling myself in.) She brought Eleanor a snow globe as a Pee Present. Elly really likes snow globes at the moment. She wants to swirl every one she sees, and now she’s bonkers over the one she has of her very own.
And who knew it was a multitasker?
I took Elly to her room today to lay her down for a nap. She had her globe and made this curious gesture where she touched her globe and then each ear.
“Doctors ears,” she said. “Djew lie back… dats good,” and then she put the snow globe on my tummy. The bottom of the snow globe is hollow and made a thwank sound that made us both laugh.
“Theck da tummy… Theck da ears… theck da udder ears…”
“DA tummy says ger-lub ger-lub ger-lub!”
Doctor Elly does a thorough job. She checked me over and over and over and over and… It was a really good time. Eleanor spent a good bit of time checking her own tummy and that of her sister, but, hey, that’s just a part of the new HMO group policy. She wanted to sleep with her globe tonight and, I guess, dream of real stethoscopes.
