David Words

I thought I would take a minute to share a couple of cute things that David has said. In our recent quest for 100% potty training, I created a chart whereby David needs to place stickers on five empty squares to receive a reward. (One perfect bathroom session equals one sticker.) The rewards are: a bite-size candy bar, an outdoor bubble-blowing experience, a bowl of popcorn, and a trip to the slide. However, in the last few days he has come down with a cold, so in order to bribe him to take his medicine, we offer him a chocolate bar (the bite-size candybar reward) for swallowing the medicine down. He calls these "chocky bars".

This morning, David arose in the wee hours of dawn to use the bathroom. After spending some time in the bathroom, we called in to him, "David, are you finished?"

He said, "Need help!"

"What do you need help with?" We asked.

"My shorts are upside up."

It is always nice to wake up laughing in the morning, even if it is to simply turn a pair of shorts inside out.

I'm so glad you are keeping track of the cute things David is saying. It's so much fun to see the interesting variations that occur as children acquire new language skills!
