Sneaky Poppy

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?

Me: Paper!

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.

What a FUN Poppy! Great idea about letting them taste it vs. just telling them what it is. I think I'm going to borrow your Poppy's genius idea!
