A real conversation that transpired in my house this week:
Hubby: Everything in the 6 year old’s drawer is wet.
Me: I’m sure it was his little brother. (he’s unbelievably mischievous).
Hubby: Buddy, do you know why everything is wet?
3 year old: (avoids eye contact)
Hubby: I know that you know.
3 year old: (continues avoiding eye contact)
Hubby: Please tell me why everything is wet, bud. I promise I won’t be mad.
3 year old. (Looks up, grinning) It’s a waterpark!
Hubby: Where did you get the water? Where did it all come from?
3: It’s a special waterpark! ….. A special PEE waterpark!
Hubby: A what? Wait…Did you pee in your brother’s drawer?
3 year old: (gleefully) YES!
Come on, hubby. This isn’t your first rodeo – you should have known it was pee as soon as you noticed everything was wet.
Raising boys sure isn’t for the faint of heart…. Or people who can’t handle a mess…. Or those who can’t laugh a little bit about pee….
Hubby didn’t even get that mad. He just walked into the laundry room muttering, “Yeah, I did that once to my brother too….”
