Okayt, so it's ONE AM. My Little Prince just came out of his room ten minutes ago. He was coughing and I could tell he was half out of it. I asked him if he wanted me to come lay down with him. No answer. Asked him if he wanted some water. No answer. He stumbles back behind the sofa - the play area. I'm sitting on the floor on the laptop when I hear, ever so faintly, water dripping.

I turn around, and lo and behold, he has proceeded to PEE on his train table!!! Luckily, I guess, he and hubcaps had just assembled the train (so there weren't hundreds of cars to clean up, just a few tracks)...but it was still pretty gross.

As moms, we get used to cleaning up these disgusting displays. Poop in the tub - that's a favorite of mine. Vomit of all sorts. Snot. Eeeek. Honestly, the mere sight of snot makes me dry heave. Literally. All kinds of snot. Adult snot, kid snot, baby snot. I'm not talking about the clear runny nose snot - that doesn't bother me one bit. I can wipe it off the kid's face with my bare hand and then smear it on my jeans. It's the green globby snot that hangs there, dangling in the wind....THAT snot makes me heave!! Not even the rotavirus poo made me heave like the snot thing.

I can't take it anymore. I cannot wait until I don't have to hear a "mommy wipe me" from across the house! What a glorious day that will be, no? Don't get me wrong, kids are GREAT - but come on, coudln't we have figured out some way to overcome this? You know, we are so technologically advanced and yet, we still have this "problem" - but I guess it's like Oprah says about "we all poop" - it really is the common denominator. LOL.

Well, I think that's enough of the potty humor. Have a Happy Tuesday!!

I say the SAME THING about not wanting a dog! I clean up enough ick, and I really LOVE the people who leave it around. I think I'd resent a dog way too much at this point.

The pee story made me laugh. It's a family legend in the making!

It's kind of funny, when I worked in daycare, I worked with a girl who could stomach anything but a snotty nose. My weakness was puke. So our deal was, I took care of any nasty nose, and she got the pukers. Perfect trade off. LOL!

Ah funny! He peed on the train table?? Was he still asleep?

I'm good with green snottys, but I don't like tub poop.

Hilarious! I just had a flashback of being a kid, my brother was sleep walking and peed on our playroom floor (it was on hte OPPOSITE side of the hall as the bathroom). Oops! lol

And snots ARE gross...although I have never had to clean up green globs from anyone but myself (and eye boogers from the puppies. LOL)
