Out of the Mouth of Miles: Vol. Two

You know, there have been times over the past year or so when I have wondered if Miles thinks what is in his pull-up or potty is as yucky as I do. When he was a baby, I knew he was completely oblivious to being changed. Mostly he just didn't like that I was bothering him with, you know, cleaning him.

But as he got older and we got into the pull-ups stage and potty-training, I was watching him for signs of cringing or making a face -- something. Mostly he was copying us, saying, "stinky!" or "nasty!" And all of that is cute...even when he would just have to look in the potty when he was done and make some remark about what was there. But I thought that surely one day he would look in the potty and not find it so fascinating.

Well my friends...that day came last night. In Wal-Mart.

I was buying a couple of things in the electronics department when Miles announced to me (as children are wont to do), "Mom...I have to go poo-poo." So I hurried up with my purchase and we made our way to the front of the store and into the bathroom. After Miles was done and I was doing what moms do and cleaning the kid, I was waiting for his usual exclamation at what he found in the potty. Instead I heard him speaking in a very soft and serious voice: "That is disgusting." And there it was...he finally got it. My boy is growing up!

Okay, onto the much cuter and cleaner stuff. This morning our students were out in front of the student union giving out free hugs. I thought I'd go with Miles for an hour or two and take over the filming from Casey while I was there. I had told Miles we were going to the free hugs and asked if he remembered doing that. He said yes -- although, there are times he says 'yes' and I think he's just saying it to appease me.

As we approached the student union Miles stated in a very happy voice, "Almost the kissing!"
