Just before bedtime, Sean (who is six) ran to the bathroom. He emerged several minutes later, with the following observation:
"It felt like I peed outta my butt."
"Well," I reassured him, "that happens to all of us sometimes." I mean, hey: We've all been there.
A while later, after the lights were out and I was busy sharing hugs and kisses with the small fry, Sean said:
"I think my penis got fired and the butt got its job."
Before I could even react with laughter he continued,
"And now the penis is working in the poop factory."
I absolutely LOVE my children.
