What's Next?

On the way to have Breakfast with Bou, Tater hollars from the back of the car "I have to Poop!". Lovely. (Notice the sarcasm in my voice). Tot is still a "momma's boy" and won't stay with Bou. Luckily Bou has 3 boys of her own and would know what to do. In fact, after we got there I asked if she would mind taking him and she said no.

She went with Tater straight to the bathroom and we went to the table. I got 2 coffees and 2 milks and waited. And waited. And waited. I was starting to get worried. Did he go in his pants and she was 'cleaning them'? Did they get lost? Strange thoughts go through your mind at times like this. Like the fact I have had only 12 hours sleep in 5 days. I really wish I had not calculated it out nor the calculation that if the average person gets 8 hours a night, then in 5 nights they would have gotten 40 hours. Which meant I got a quarter of the amount of sleep of an average person.

Back to the story... I'm easily sidetracked... Finally they arrived. We ordered, got our toast early, worked on coloring and talked. Eventually I had to ask... what happened in the bathroom. She said he sat down and they waited. She asked him if everything was ok, and he said “Sometimes we just have to wait for the poop”. Yaa, we both laughed.

And then she said he must have emptied his colon. The pot was full. I laughed. I swear that kid poops his weight some days.

It got better. After a very nice breakfast, we got the kids together and started to leave. While standing at the car, Bou mentioned she needed to leave and go to work. Tater responded with "only Boys go to work". I thought we both we would fall over. What???? Then again, every Mon-Fri when Dad leaves... it's "give Dad a kiss before he goes to work". Bou asked what Girls do. Brave woman. "Girls work at home". OMG! She was very sweet to Tater, kissed his forehead and told him that the work girls do at home is MUCH harder than the work away from home.

Yep... that's my boy. Now what? ;-)

OK, I had to laugh at the waiting for the poop thing. That Tater is a hoot.

And I have to say that your writing is amazingly coherent after so little sleep, VW!!

What have you been teaching your kid? I'd expect Clone to spout something off like that! Wow.

Oh you know I have more to add to this... there were all sorts of conversations in that stall!

I'll try to get it up tonight. Hectic here per the usual.

rofl! that kid is hilarious!

Isn't that the truth though? Sometimes you do just have to wait for the poop. :)

We often wait for it too! Oh what a cutie pie!

You people are weird. Do you mean you NEVER have to wait for the poop? What do you do, wait until it's prarie-doggin' before you head for the bathroom?

my cousin's daughter, when she was 3, made the observation that only boys work and that only boys go to school.
it must have been harsh when she started pre-k in the fall!

Oh my -- lol! It's just not a complete week (when you have toddlers) without some type of potty humor! :)

Way too funny!!! Love reliving those days through Tater and Tot's antics.
