Conversation with Nutmeg

on January 27, 2010

She’s too young to have a real conversation but nonetheless…

Scene: Nutmeg is carrying her nappy (diaper) to the bin in the kitchen. The Engineer is holding the bin-cupboard door open for her.

The Engineer: “Come on, in the bin!”
Nutmeg drops the nappy, and sits down next to it.
TE picks it up and holds it near the bin. “Come on sweetie, come and get it.”
Nutmeg gets up, retrieves nappy from TE, drops it next to bin, sits down by it. Looks at her father and shakes her head very firmly.
Nutmeg thinks: “My intention is to play with this nappy, and hopefully chew it a bit. I’m not putting it in there. I know you won’t let me have it back afterwards!”

  1. Awww! Don't you think she might really be getting the idea that if she can put her nappy in the bin you might make her use the potty? I bet that's it – and she doesn't want to be tricked into it!

    BTW – thank you for stopping by and leaving such kind sentiments last week. Each kind thought was like a hug I needed to bolster me strength. Thank you:)
