While Mommy and Daddy went on a little movie date tonight (Captain America, if you're wondering), I was busy playing with Mimi, Poppy, and Auntie.
I've known Poppy for 2.5 years now, and there's one thing I figured out about this guy early on: Poppy doesn't say "no" unless it's dangerous. Which is why the following actions and conversation were able to happen tonight.
Me: Poppy, I want a banana.
Poppy: KK, I don't think there are any more bananas.
Me: No! I want my own banana.
Poppy: Look right here in the fruit basket. There aren't any bananas left.
Me: Let me get up there and see.
Poppy picks me up and sets me on the counter.
Me (looking in fruit basket): There aren't any more bananas. Let me stay up here, though.
Poppy (of course) lets me stay up on the counter. I open some cupboards, check out the drawers, and eventually become attracted to Mommy's countertop canisters.
Me: Open those up, Poppy.
Poppy (of course) opens up each canister, one at a time.
Me (upon Poppy opening the canister with sugar): What is that?
Poppy: What do you think it is?
Me: I don't know.
Poppy: Lick your finger and stick it in there, then taste it.
Me (after licking my finger and sticking it in): It's sugar!
Poppy: Yeah! Do you want to do it again?
Me: Uh huh!
Poppy (of course) lets me stick my finger in two or three more times.
Poppy: Shh, don't tell Mommy that I let you do that.
Me: Shh! Okay.
Poppy opens up the flour canister.
Me: What is it?
Poppy: Lick your finger again and taste it.
I lick my finger and taste it, then make a yucky face.
Poppy: What does it taste like?
That Poppy sure is a fun guy! He even agreed (of course) to wear my Bo Peep hat while we played in a homemade tent.
