Among The Many Things I Never Considered Would Be A Part of Parenthood

If you are easily offended, do not read this post. It's content is mildly disgusting, so I considered not posting this. Yet, as it is so representative of my life, I simply could not help myself.

The scene: Busy kitchen right before dinner time. Jay and I are in the final stages of food preparation.

Joey (distraught, running into the room): I was washing my hands in the bathroom and I accidentally dropped my new flashlight pen in the toilet!

Jay: Was there anything in the toilet?

Joey: No.

Jay: OK, then. Don't worry. I will go take care of it as soon as I'm finished here.

Five minutes pass in a flurry of frantic kitchen activity. (You know what's coming next, don't you?)

Lindsey (really, really distraught, running into the kitchen): I just pooped on Joey's new pen! I didn't see it was in the toilet until it was too late!

Stunned silence from Jay and I. A wail from Joey.

Lindsey (loudly whispering): Should I flush, or what?

Yes, another eventful day in the Di Silvestri household.

Thanks for the laugh this morning. It is right up there with the front lawn hose down of Tony. What they couldn't wait for a day or two so that we were there to enjoy the scene. You just have to love the unpredictability of children. Live is never boring with them around.
