A Funny Thing Happened...

A funny thing happened to me the other day....

It seems like I am in a perpetual state of something funny happening to me, so I am going to start numbering those things on here. This is the first of many!!!

A couple of weeks ago, my kids and I were at the library perusing their meager collection of books. Xander comes up to me holding his his hands between his legs saying, "I gotta potty!" I told him to just go home (we live directly across from the library) go pee, then to come right back so he could pick out his book. He left and came back with amazing speed, but I didn't really think much of it. When we were leaving, I noticed a puddle right by the library door.

Xander then proclaimed loud & proud "I go potty right there, Mommy!" while pointing at the puddle.

I stood there staring at it for a moment and then started pushing him and Kalista away from the puddle as people were coming out the door right behind us. I guess Xander didn't think I heard him because he kept repeating it until we went around the corner. I think I heard one of the little girls behind us laughing. I am going to choose to believe her sister had just told her a very amusing knock-knock joke right at that moment.

What is with boys and peeing outside!? I don't get it.

That's hilarious!! All I can say is get used to it!! ;) Yesterday at Becky's, Evan was soaking wet and he had to go potty. I took him outside the fence and around the corner and let him go. He thought it was hilarious!!! In my mind, it was better than dragging his soaking wet body through Becky's house or having to dry him off before he could go in and him have an accident where everyone was playing!!! ;)

I know your situation is a little different, but that is how my parents potty trained my brother. He would ONLY go if he went outside!! Glad that's changed now! ;)

Hey, if I had one of those things, I probably would have done that too! Maybe I would have at least gone around the corner.

When John was little, he was outside potty trained, then inside potty trained. Then, when Elliott's brother Eric got married, he had an outside reception and as we were walking through the parking lot to the tent, someone said to me, "Hey, isn't that John over there peeing on the grass?" All I could do was nod my head and smile. At least he moved away from the flow of people first. He's considerate that way, my John!

That is so funny, they don't grow out of it either. Just the other day all of us were talking in Sarah's room/Doug's office when Ashley's says, "what's Alex doing?" then.."Oh..and she busts out laughing, as we all look out the window to see him standing spread eagle two feet from the window, back to us (thankfully) relieving himself from the sidewalk. We were quite ammused.
