We went to the Portland Yard & Patio Show last weekend. It is always so much fun to see what you know you shouldn't spend any money on this year.
Karmyn's family spent the afternoon there with us enjoying the lovely displays that the local nurseries and landscapers prepared.
Before we walked out into the rainy evening I took Buttercup into the ladies restroom. We needed to deal with that before catching the MAX back to where we'd parked,.
"You go into this stall and go potty," I told Buttercup, "and I am going into this one. "
"Stay there until I tell you to open the door." I added that bit of information for her so she wouldn't wander out without me.
"Okay, " she replied, and locked herself in.
I'd just settled in when I heard her yell out very loud.
"Grandma !!" she called me.
"Yes, I'm here." I replied without hesitation, worried that something had frightened her .
"You see that green handle? If you have to go Pee Pee, just push it up. If you have to go Poo Poo, just push it down."
"Okay, I've got it. Thanks," I answered with a shake of my head, wondering if that child had any other volume but loud.
Later that night I mentioned to Karmyn that I'd received an instructive lecture in the ladies room at the convention center.
"Oh yes," she nodded her head. "She questioned me about the green handle earlier in the day when we used it. After I told her about pushing the handle up or down, she asked, 'If I go both, do I push the handle sideways?' "
Oh, Buttercup! You do keep us smiling.
