I hope you don't have "Privacy"!!!

So L is really into asking what words mean lately. Today in her Samantha book she wanted to know what a hem was. She loves learning new words. Well last night I realized that I need to teach more definitions of the words L hears. Here is how the conversation went...........

L: "Mommy I went to the bathroom and had privacy." (She seemed upset and I thought she meant B had walked in on her and just had the wording wrong.)
M:"Did B walk in by accident?"
L:"No, I had privacy!!!"
M:"Why are you upset that you had privacy?"
L:"Because maybe I'm getting sick"
M:"Do you know what privacy means?" (Long Pause.) It means that you have time to yourself."
L:"Oh." (very confused look)
M:It then hits me. "Do you mean you had diarrhea?" (trying not to laugh)
L:"Yeah, That's what I meant!!!"

So I'm really wondering what L must have thought when mommy would say, "I just need some privacy." L wasn't sick. She just had that one episode of "privacy".


  1. Great story! It will haunt Liah for a long, long time!

  2. Regan came to me yesterday morning saying that her diaper was making her privacy hurt. Kids say the darndest things, don't they!?
