I've had a variety of odd symptoms since the beginning of the year - cold and/or allergies and/or sinus issues being the most evident. I picked up a few more symptoms over the weekend and was generally feeling poorly. So, I asked Little Miss nicely if she could be patient with me because I wasn't feeling well. You have to know that Little Miss is rarely sick. She sometimes has the sniffles, but she mostly shows she's not feeling well with a touch of a fever or some special bathroom time. Otherwise, her behavior is often unchanged. So, after asking her for patience, she waits a beat. Then, I hear, from the backseat of the car:
"OK, Mommy. Just don't poop your pants."
She meant it so sincerely so I tried hard not to laugh and thanked her for her medical advice.
