Boys are gross, Part Deux

Why does Parker suddenly want to pee standing up? I’m a girl, I don’t understand the trajectory of the three-year-old penis. And I'm not sure he's ever actually seen it done (Where's Greg when I need him?). We now have pee all over the bathroom, back of the toilet and his pants.

In the meantime, Dillon was sitting at the table finishing his dinner. He used the corn on the cob and chicken nuggets to scoop up the mashed potatoes. It took two wipes to clean-up his hands and face. And his shirt is still a mess.

Oh well, looks like an early bath tonight.

Boys are gross

Case in point: Today Parker picked up a long blue fingernail at the park and said, “Look at this, Mom.” Yesterday it was a used Band-Aid.

In the car on the way home, Dillon says, “Mommy, I got a gooby (aka bugger).” I handed him a tissue to get it off his finger and off we went.

I’m grossed out on a daily basis. I was so hopeful when Parker refused to eat certain things because it would make him “all dirty.” That phase has past, and quite quickly, I might add. Oh well, off to clean-up yet another mess.

Is the word playdate in the dictionary?

I never thought I’d use the word playdate. What kind of word is that? Is it even a word? Two words? Anyway, I thought it was a word only minivan driving soccer moms use and here I am using it.

In fact, I kind of live for playdates. Any excuse to have an adult conversation and have someone (besides me) entertain my boys.

So, if you’re looking to have a (gasp) playdate, you know who to call.
