(The picture below is from the weekend, but Layla undressing outside has become a very common occurrence that happens at least 2-3 times a day.)
The kids continued to play outside until I suddenly heard Sanaa yell, "NO LAYLA! DON'T PEE ON THE ROCKS!"
I turned to find Layla standing on our rock path with no underwear or pants on and a puddle under her. The conversation that followed went like this:
Me: "Layla, I asked you to potty in the toilet! Why didn't you go inside?"
Layla: "I dunno."
Me: "Is your underwear wet?"
Me: "Bring it here. You need to put it on."
Layla: "Here mommy. See. It's dry. You so proud of me? I not pee in my pants. You so proud of me?"
Me: "Ummm... Layla I'm happy that you did not pee in your pants. But we cannot pee on rocks either. You need to pee in the toilet next time."
Layla: "Okay mommy."
So once again, I need to be very clear with Layla. I thought I was but there's good chance she only heard what she wanted which consisted of "keep your underwear dry." And she did....
