Short Order Cook

Lately Owen has been saying the same thing to me every morning, before he says good morning or anything else: ‘Mama, I want chocolate with bun with chocolate with a petit suisse with a spoon with water.’

I’m not all that surprised that the first thing he says is about what he wants for breakfast. This is the kid that nursed voraciously for the first 2.5 years of his life, and when he learned to talk used to come down the stairs saying ‘Hungry Mama, hungry, hungry!’. But it’s the ‘with a spoon’ that kills me… like I’m going to give him a yogurt (for our non French readers, petit suisse is a small yogurt like thing) to eat without a spoon! Although his father is less attentive to details before having coffee, so maybe it’s good that Owen throws that detail in!

Embarrassment Factor: High

Owen has been toilet trained for about a year now, and knows how to do most everything toilet related himself. However, he can’t wipe after a BM, and needs to ask for help.

Lately, he sings out ‘I’m done!’ followed by a cheery ‘Who’s going to wipe my bottom?’ Ahhh… the suspense… and the lucky winner is greeted by an ‘Oh, it’s you, Mama!!’
