So we had another conversation about someone pooping somewhere inappropriate … I have a 3yo, so of course we have about two dozen conversations like this daily….
Toddler: “I like when [Baby] poops in my hand!”
Me: “What?! She doesn’t do that!”
Toddler: [Opens her hand.] “Grandma peed in her hand … and then showed it to grandpa J-“
Me: “What?! You’re spreading gossip….”
Toddler: [Pauses. Wipes her opened hand on my shoulder.] “Spread gossip!!!!”
Toddler: [Wipes hand again.] “Spread gossip!” [Pauses thoughtfully for several beats.] “Mom, what does gossip mean?”
!!!! So of course I explained gossip … no wiping involved, kiddo….
