Its pouring rain, were all set to go out. I tell Lil:
“I gotta pee”
Lil says “me pee too”
We go, undress, takes off boots, rain pants, pants, diaper, she sits on the potty, looks up and says:
“me no pee”
We drop by the market after picking up Luke from school. Luke wants pizza, so Lily wants pizza. I get two slices and we sit down.
“Lily, do you want me to cut some small pieces?”
“Yes, wee, wee”
I cut small pieces, she looks at them and gets upset, she looks at Luke who is eating a whole piece
“big big peece”
I cut her a large piece, to no avail.
I put the pizza down and tell her she can help herself, she goes nutty. Doesn’t like that.
Lily is a complex, highly attenuated, lovely, (did I say complicated) little girl person.
