Potty Talk

We all measure time differently. Sure, there are the standard rules of time: a minute, a day, a year. And there are other ways to measure time that are a little more general, but denote mile stones: B.C and A. D., “after The Flood,” “Before we moved,” “After the kids were born.” And then there are phrases that are relative like, “I'll be back in a moment.”

When it comes to children who are still learning the concept of time, you get some funny and interesting conversations.

Mark and I were playing with his firetruck and helicopter when he was called into the other room by Michael. “Mommy,” Mark began, “ I be back -- in a fwush!”

“Don't you mean, 'in a flash?'” I asked him.

“No in a fwush. Like da toywet. In a fwush!”


  1. Aww, that's great! I'm so excited my little one is starting to talk. I love the things kids say!

  2. That is just. so. cute!
