So to distract myself, and because I have neglected my mommyblogging while in the throes of treatment, I give you a brief scene from this morning, just after Bat Girl and I rose for the day:
Me: Let's take off your diaper before you start playing with your toys.
BG: NO! GO AWAY FROM ME! DON'T TOUCH ME!* I'M VERY VERY BUSY!
Me: Honey, that's not a very nice way to talk to Mommy.
BG: [sweetly] Could you pleeeease go away from me now?
*This is her latest thing--screaming "Get away from me!" or "Don't touch me!" whenever we try to do something incredibly offensive like, say, remove her sodden overnight diaper or tuck in her blankets when she wakes in the middle of the night or get a closer look at a boo-boo. Charming, no?
