Little Peepers

Hi there!

We're still recovering from a Bus-E weekend, but I have a little story to (hopefully) give you a smile and a laugh on your Monday.

Tonight I was in the kitchen working on dinner.

Little Brother had to go potty. (Surprisingly early. He usually waits until the moment we sit down to eat.)

I "got him started" (aka turned the light on), and then went back to dinner.

He was in there for a little while (he had announced this beforehand), and then I finally heard a flush.

Reflexively, I blurted out, "Don't forget to wash your hands or use 'hanitizer'!"

(You have to say it 1,000,000 times before it becomes automatic. We have a few more to go for this one.)

About a minute later, Little brother still hadn't come out of the bathroom, when Big Brother casually mentioned, "Uh, dad. Little Brother is standing in the sink."

That's right. To be more exact, he was standing, stark naked (he can't go potty without completely undressing), in the basin of the sink.

The resemblance to Mr. Peepers was uncanny.

"What are you doing, dude?"

"I couldn't reach the hanitizer."

You gotta love it when climbing naked into the sink makes more sense than just asking for help.

But that's my 3 year-old.

Have a good week,
Wash your hands,

  1. Yes, I did get a Monday laugh out of your son's adventure with the "hanitizer." Aren't 3 year-olds wonderful!
