that is super cute! kids are so funny
i have been sick for eight years, so i was sick when my son was born, and he didnt' really understand, all he knew was that he had to spend alot of time playing in the bathroom, luckily he thought that was fun! it was worse for me than for him, becuase i couldnt' take him anywhere, but he didnt'realize that yet.
Anyway, he was 22months when i had my surgery, and as a result he had to live with my grandma for six weeks, because i couldnt' take care of him, and my husband had to go back to work. That was hard on him, and he his far to little to understand, he only knows that mommy's belly is broken. Well the first time i took him in the batrhoom with me, was right after he came back to live with us (that sounds awful) anyway he looked at the bag, and said, "what's that thing called?" and i said it's an ileostomy, and he said, oh an ileostomy (in two year old speak, but he actually pronoucned it pretty good) anyway he asked what it was for and i told him, and he went about his business, the next time he jsut watched, thought it was really neat. A few times later he asked me again, and i said, "i keep poo in there" and he said, "how did winnie the pooh get in there?" i lauged so hard! i explained it to him, again. and now he seems to get it, i stil have to be careful becasuse he is rather wild and wants to jump on my tummy, and i am afraid he will yank my bag off!
