Knock on Wood...a little longer next time...

Many of you won't want to know this...but you will here in the near future because you will undoubtedly keep reading.

Many times in my conversations with other mothers "bathroom talk" almost always creeps its way in. I guess once you become a mother talking about your child's bowel movements is a right of passage????huh? Well...I always added to the conversation by saying how relieved I was that Carter had not yet "dropped the kids off at the pool"...in this case the Olympic size swimming pool...okay the bathtub! Then, as follows many inevitable statements, everyone chimes in "knock on wood"..well I guess the last time I knocked I didn't do it hard enough...or long enough because, well, today Carter made a liar out of me.

It was gross...I made Josh clean it up. The End.

Hahah! and EEW!!!! And guess what, Ethan has never dropped the kids off at the pool...but he has dropped them off in the basement..and that's even worse!

Cheri said...

Have I ever told you the story about how Ethan almost didn't live past his second birthday??? I didn't even spank him because I was soooo mad I didn't know if my judgement was working right.

Well, its something every mother goes through. I remember you and Casey used to do it a lot, and then scream because the floaties scared you.

Mom...I never did that.

That's hillarious! I am glad you made Josh clean it up. I would do exactly the same thing!

haha I can't believe you made it this far :) lucky duck. I hope that you are able to go a while before another one strikes-hopefully it never will

Liz said...

Seriously, just when you thank your lucky stars for something...!

And I think that definitely falls under the job description of "husband." ;-)

LOL!!! That is so funny. I was just talking to one of my friends about this the other day. She told me it's just a matter of time. YUCK!!!! Tim better be home when it happens. I can handle many things but that is just not one of them!!!

Kristin, Jeff, and Michael said...

Michael LOVES to do that! he has done it about 7 or 8 times. And the first time he ever did it we were at my brother's house. Lovely! And I always yell for Jeff to come and take care of it! And about moving...I say go for it. Although I would miss seeing you. But if your kids are little and not in school I say go for it and have an adventure. I think it would be fun!

smash said...

That is awesome Laura! It was bound to happen.

Casey Marie said...

HAHAHAHA! Is that why you were so mad when you came over the other day?

And Mom...that's embarrassing. :)

The Van Noys said...

what do you mean "Why I was so mad?" I haven't been mad.
