Tiny Talk Tuesday

Selena’s analogy or plea for a new bed.

  • Selena: “Papa, your too big for your bed.”
  • Papa: “What, I am too big for my bed, what bed?”
  • Selena: “Yes, your too big for your bed that you sleep in. You need a new bed.”
  • Papa: “Why so you can have my old bed?”
  • Selena: “Yes, you get a new bed and I can have your bed.”

One morning I heard a noise in the bathroom, I turned around to see what was going on, Selena had the toilet brush and was swishing it around in the toilet. I asked her what she was doing, and she informed me, “I have to get my work done. I can’t do anything until I get my work done.” I think we can find a different chore for her.

I am linking this up at Not Before 7.

Pin It


  1. I wouldn't mind having my kids clean the toilet, except I don't think it would end well. Batman has already tried to unclog it once, and that didn't go well.

  2. She is too cute.

    I am surprised that she would want to clean the toilet! I can't imagine any of my kids even trying.

  3. I like Selena's reasoning for new bed. Perhaps you can build on her interest and transition toilet cleaning to her :)
    I hope the storm will blow over, and you can come back online.

  4. If only the a 4 year old could clean the toilet...sigh. I think I hear some echoes of Grandma, in the "I have to get my work done" :)

  5. Yeah, I think I will wait a while before I let the girls clean the toilet. I've already had Amelia clog the sink.
    I do love the quote though. Do you by any chance say that?
    So is she getting too big for her bed? Very slick way of trying to get something, huh?
