I keep forgetting to write this down and it was so funny that I want to make sure I remember it and can share it with my boys when they’re older.
The other day, I was getting the kids around for school and getting myself ready to go to work. My two youngest boys, Kain and Kelan (7 and 4) have a habit of running into the bathroom and peeing together. There they stood, hip to hip- picture little sleepy faces, rumpled hair and scratching of tiny hinnies. I walked past the bathroom to put my shoes on and said a small prayer to the toilet god to make their aim be true.
For one reason or another, these trips almost always result in some type of hilarious conversation between the two of them. And this morning’s conversation was nothing to sneeze at.
Kelan, “Why does it take you so long to go pee pee?”
Kian, “I don’t know.”
~Pause~ (I could actually visualize the wheels turning in Kian’s head)
Kian, “Because your peeper is a lot bigger than mine.”
Kelan, washing his hands, “Oh.”
Kian, “Yeah, your peeper is bigger than mine. So you can pee a lot faster.” And with that conclusion satisfied, they walked out of the bathroom.
Stuck with horrified amusement I said to my husband, “Really?”
He simply walked around the corner with his hands up, laughing and replied, “Boys, honey. Boys.”
