Bubble, Bubble, Toilet and Trouble

The other evening I came home late, after a full day of making sure that the earth kept spinning on its axis and as I sat down to have dinner, my 8 year old son ran to me and said, "here, hold this!" and handed me a lime popsicle. Apparently he had to go to the bathroom and wanted me to be his lime popsicle assistant.

"I'm EATING!" I said because I pity the fool who comes between me and a meal and he said, "No prob! I got it!" and hopped to the bathroom with the popsicle. Then he came out.

"I just held it in my other hand!" he announced.

Potty training doesn't stop when they're out of diapers, you know.

But I know all about potty jokes and how to curtail them. Bow to my wisdom here. And while you're there, enter our contest and win a book. It'll make you smart and shit.

P.S. Spell check is giving me a lot of trouble because it keeps saying that "popsicle" is spelled "Popsicle". But I'm not falling for it.

When I was potty-graining my little girl, there were times when I had to lure her into the bathroom with a cookie and let her eat it WHILE ON THE POTTY.
All together now: EWWWWW.

My mother in law found out what I was doing and reamed me out, and of course I was all, "Um, no, it's TOTALLY fine, the books recommend it (LIE LIE LIE)." (More on my MIL on my post today, "How Not To Be A Bitch." I welcome any opportunity to mention her as she does not go online but she does kind of ruin my life at times).

5770 is looking sticky/sweet already, I see, for young Ladrinka.

Well at least he held it in his other hand. Things could have been disastrous otherwise.

Oh that is funny! And kind of gross. And I'm pretty sure you're right - popsicle is NOT a proper noun!

Love it. He figured it out on his own. What more do we want from our kids! Ha!

Mine just keep having to go as soon as I pour the milk on their cereal. It's a Pavlovian response.

Technically, Popsicle is a proper noun because it's a brand name. If you buy a bargain brand, it probably has to be called something like frozen treat.

If I need a good laugh, I know where to come. And for the record, I would have held that damn Popsicle. Eew.

Mama Bird: He stuck it in his mouth to wash his hands. How do I know? Oh, I have 2 boys at home...

Boys can come up with some stuff, let me tell you! But that's the fun part about them! Well, that and the potty jokes. Can't help but laugh when they can't get thru the whole joke cuz they're giggling so hard!
