He Actually Asked Me To Do This!

Ian, my favorite subject matter lately, always announces to me when he needs to go to the bathroom. I have the feeling that I may be getting phone calls when he goes off to college...I don't know. Anyway last night he makes his announcement right before bed. He was playing with a remote control that had lights so going potty was not on the top of his list of what he wanted to be doing with his time. So, he looks and me and says, "Can you put the lid up for me and pull down my pants." Um, NO, but thanks for asking. The remote control required two hands to operate. Evan was looking on in amazement at the whole thing. Needless to say, as much as I love my son and want to be a helpful mommy, I declined. I told him he had to do it himself....For which I received a sigh and an eye roll that he picked up from one of the teenagers... Why do I have so many urine stories about these boys?

I remember when I was a kid asking my mom "Can I go to the bathroom?" To this day we don't know why I felt like I had to ask permission. That must be the difference between boys and girls... I guess I felt like I was being polite, boys just want to announce something "big" that they're doing. :-)

It's so cute how he wanted help going to the bathroom so that he could continue with his more interesting activity. SO CUTE !

Thanks for sharing Shellie ! ! !
