Warning: The following post contains references to bodily functions, continue at your own risk!

So, being the father of two girls under three there is a whole lot of talk around our house about bodily functions. We have regular conversations about poo-poo and pee-pee. There is the occasional talk of tooting as well as snot, wiping, and various other things. It is amazing how much time I have spent in the past two months dealing with or talking about the bowel habits of my children. When the girls moved in, our oldest was already potty trained; we thought we had it made. But little did I know that being potty trained and getting the pee-pee in the potty are two different things. No need for details but I will never understand the plumbing and physiology of females. So why this topic you ask? Well three things. First of all our youngest has started to tell us when she has thrown the deuce in the diapers, which is a nice thing and makes cleanup easier but she also will now ask to go pee-pee on the potty. It is the cutest thing in the world seeing that petite little girl sitting on the john, holding on to me saying "Come out pee-pee, come out", and then grunting like she knows exactly what to do. The other two things both come about because of my adventures with the girls this week. We had to make another trip to see the doctor and things went much better this time. I had so many snacks and games that we could have stayed the night. But when it is two little girls and daddy for hours on end, nature does call. So the other day as I maneuver the stroller into the large handicap stall (thank you ADA) my oldest does her thing (don't get me started on those stupid toilet seats with the gap, I mean why is it there? It just freaks my daughter out and she has to sit sideways and then we hope her "aim" is ok, but I digress). So as we are in the stall I proceed to use the toilet as well. So there I am going #1 and my youngest looks into the potty and says, "Ohhhhh, Bubbles!!" She was so intrigued by the bubbles it was all I could do to hold my aim and keep her hands out of the water. Ahhh, the innocence of youth. On Wednesday I had to take the girls to a DCFS visit and then to a local Lutheran School where I was a judge for the Science Fair. The girls were great and had a good time. We did visit the potty before we left and on our way out of the restroom, my oldest says (as we pass the urinals), "Hey look its daddy potties." What a crack-up. I never thought of if that way before but she is right. Thanks for listening to the pee and poo stories. I could go on but the FCC might ban this site. Have a great week!!

Oh, I remember those days well. Many conversations in my house were (and sometimes still are) about bodily functions. And by the way, Matthew calls urinals "big boy potties".

Holy cow...still hilarious after hearing it in person. Those girls are a hoot!

Blogger are you still alive?

So, I've been kicking around the idea of long form blogging again.  I got away from it almost 9 years ago when Facebook and Twitter bega...
