Accident, Mommy

Scene 1

Living room. CD and DVD cases strewn all over. A messy pool of silver disks on the floor. Another Josh and Zoë double trouble moment.

One look at my face, Zoë picked up a disk, came over to me, handed it over and said, "Me, Mommy. Accident. Sorry, Mommy." *Kisses and more kisses*

Scene 2

Six o'clock in the morning. A little voice was chirping excitedly next to me: "Look, Mommy, look!" I reluctantly peered through still sleepy eyes and immediately sat upright. Right there on my bed, on the bed sheet, was a thick white glob, about 1.5" high. Zoë was sitting proudly in front of it with a tube of my lotion in her hand.

Me: Zoë! Who did this? (Silly question, I know, as the culprit had been caught redhanded.)

Zoë: Me, Mommy. Sorry. Accident, Mommy. Love you. *Kisses* *More kisses*

Scene 3

Josh and Zoë playing hide-and-seek. Closet doors opening and banging shut. Lots of giggling. Suddenly, "Mommy! Zoë peed in your closet!" Ugh!

She still has the occasional 'accident,' especially when she's busy playing and can't be bothered to stop to go to the washroom. After we cleaned up the mess, she came to me and I told her that she needs to tell us when she has to go to the washroom. She looked at me, all innocence, and said, "Okay, Mommy. Me, accident. Take care, Mommy. Take care. Love you." *Kisses and kisses*

Zoë's very good at saying "sorry" even without prompting. Lately, as if she's trying out the word "accident," she's been owning up to every mischief around here, whether or not she was the perpetrator and saying that each one was an "accident." It's hard for me to keep a straight face when she does that... and she's so earnest, too! Not to mention the kisses and the love-you's that she dishes out whenever she apologizes.

It will take a lot for me to get mad at this little diva. She knows just what to do to butter me up!

How old is Zoe? She's so smart to realize that all she has to do is "kiss kiss" to make it all better. Of course, you can't stay mad at her for too long. She's so cute!
