Abigail: (giggling, and "rattling"...) Look, Mom, Ellie's toys are on my bum!
Me: What? Ellie's toys are on your bum?
Abi: (Turning around and lifting up her dress) Yeah, see?
Me: (Reaching in her panties to get them out, but only getting one of the toys)
Abi: HEY! Don't take them out!
Me: Abi, you can't put Ellie's toys on your bum, it has germs and she puts those in her mouth.
Abi: But its not IN my bum, just in my panties.
Me: Ok... You can't put Ellie's toys in your panties.
Abi runs out of the room, rattling.
She returns, quietly.
Abi: Ok Mom. I'm sorry. Look, its gone. (She moons me)
Ok... one thing at a time, I guess.
I will save the lesson on the evils of mooning for tomorrow.
