The Scene: Rushing Mike along to the car because we are already running late.
Momma: Mikey, be careful, it is really icy and I don’t want you …
Mikey: (sitting on the icy parking lot) WAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
Momma: Oh, baby (picking him up). Did you fall? That probably scared you!
Mikey: (tears and red faced) Hurt butt!
Momma: Oh goodness.
Mikey: Hurt butt, hurt butt!
Momma: Okay, well let’s get into the car seat and I will give you a book (really wants to say ‘get in the damn car already, we are so late and you are fine’)
Mikey: (screaming loudly) KISS BUTT! KISS BUTT MOMMA! KISS BUTT!
Momma: (trying not to laugh) Can I kiss your hand lovey?
Mikey: (getting increasingly louder) NO NO NO KISS BUTT!
Momma: Okay, lovie. (kisses hand and taps butt)
Mikey: (tears stop instantly) Thank you Mommy.
