Adventures With Trot

At some point during the day today, Trot decided to pee in the toilet standing up.

For anyone without kids or who only has girls, this may not seem that big of a deal.

However, if you've ever been 8 inches away from a 2 year old boy while he SITS on the toilet and tries to pee, this is a HUGE development.

Imagine if you will a child who still thinks it's funny to go on the living room floor, sitting on a toilet and trying to go INTO a commode while his equipment isn't exactly ready to do anything other than shoot dead ahead.

This is the bathroom equivalent of throwing a football through a tire swing being moved by a tornado; the odds aren't in your favor. Remember Ralph Machio in the "Karate Kid" trying to catch a fly with a pair of chop sticks? Multiply that times 1,000 and you may come close to the odds of Trot NOT peeing on you, the floor, or the bathroom cabinets sitting down.

When he's standing up?

You know that feeling you get when Big Papi comes to bat in a clutch situation and you just KNOW he's gonna come through?

This is even better.

Fantastic analogies! lol

Hooray for Trot! Especially now that we are deep into potty training with Sierra too...

I still think it's funny to go on the living room floor and I'm 23.

Tex, I'll try and remember this one day. And knowing him, peeing standing up will be at the top of the highlight list.

Thanks Mattie and John I'll check that out. Good luck with Sierra, Redbeard. Girls are MUCH easier IMO.

And Rich? Not surprised. I told my wife last night that I can't freaking wait to meet you.

I am a bizzare little man friend.

A bizzare little man.

Ted D said...

Well, yeah. I knew that; just looking forward to finally see you in person.
