You have been warned. So read on knowing that this is possibly TMI.
When Soso was two years old and starting to potty train, we got her a book called, “Once Upon a Potty for Her”. In the book is a character named Prudence undergoing potty training. I think she has an accident in the book and we we started saying “Don’t do a Prudence” in order to stop Soso from having accidents.
Flash forward to today. I come out of the bathroom this morning and in walks Soso. Next thing I hear is “Ew, Mommy! What is that on the floor?” I walk back in and she’s pointing to a spot and then she says, “Did you do a Prudence Mommy?” Then she looks fully into my eyes and says with a tone I cannot quite define, part amazement, part chagrin, part gleeful, “Mommy, you did do a Prudence.”
No amount of explanation of pooling water at the feet after a shower will convince her otherwise. So as of this moment, Soso is convinced that Mommy did a Prudence. I just hope she doesn’t choose to share this particular information with her gang.
I did NOT do a Prudence. Really!
