I had saved this e-mail from a mom who sent me this hilarious story and felt that this was just the right moment to share it. I've taken the liberty of changing one specific word* (you'll know which one) just because I don't want any searches to get all funky and stuff. This will all make sense as soon as you start reading:
"I can't remember why, but on Friday night my 3 year old son had dinner in his underpants [at least he was wearing them, 'member my cousin's daughter?]. All of a sudden, I realised he had gone super quiet and was looking down. I asked what he was doing. Eyes twinkling he said all proudly: 'Look Mummy, I found my wee wee*!' I craned my neck and realised he had just discovered that his underpants had a peep hole in the front and was thrilled to find he had easy access to his parts. Without missing a beat, and suppressing my hysterics, I calmly said, 'Please put your wee wee* away at the dinner table.' I had to leave the room before he saw me laughing so hard. I can honestly say, I never anticipated saying that."
Oh yes, there are many, many things I never anticipated ever saying either! And this mom happens to have a great parenting website that she just shared with me: http://practicalmum.com
