On being considerate.

Mummy. You should go back to bed – I am going to go to the bathroom by myself.

Oh, that’s great – good luck!

[P closes the door, and I happily go back to bed. A pause.]

Mummy! I got up on the big seat all by myself!

That’s great, jellybean! Well done. [Another pause.]

I’m having a bowel movement. I asked you to go so you wouldn’t have to smell my poop.

Fair enough, bud. Let me know if you need anything.

I’m ok!

[Another pause. Some shuffling. A pause. A lot of clicking.]

Maybe the doorknob. [sigh]

Maybe I need help with the doorknob.
