Our Little Diva

When I really want something I say to stick with the kids, I make them shake on it.  I say it, and then they repeat it while we’re shaking hands.  It isn’t fail-proof, but it helps.

So my mom just came to pick the “big kids” up for a sleepover at her house tonight.  As they were getting ready to go I reminded Lydia, who is just barely potty trained, that she needed to use the potty if she had to go pee.

Me: Shake on it?

Lydia, while shaking my hand: I pwomise not to pee orr poop on de floy at Gramama’s house.

And then…she takes a bow as if she’s just completed a stunning performance on Broadway.

Oh, how I love that child!

    On de floy? Oh I love that.

    We pinky swear. When I mean it and need them to understand that I mean it, we pinky swear. I make sure not do use unless necessary, so they get that it’s serious.
