My brother and his family are still staying with us and we loaded up all the kids in their minivan yesterday and took them over to Celebration Park in Allen to play at the splash pad. We stopped at Wendy's to grab them some quick lunch on the way home. I was lucky enough to be sitting in the back between Zac and Isabel. When Zac was little and would get hurt, we found that it helped him if we kissed the "ouchy". I think it just validated his feelings but he still asks for kisses even now when he bumps into things and such. It was quiet in the van (only because all the kids were eating) and Zac says, "My penis hurts". That caught every one's attention and we all tried not to burst out laughing. Zac follows up this comment with "Mommy, would you kiss it"? Nobody could hold back the laughter at that point! Poor kid! He was simply stating a fact and asking for some sympathy but Mommy has to draw the line somewhere!
Later that evening, some friends of ours had flown into DFW and were headed out to Tyler, TX. They wanted to stop by and meet Tyler, and see Zac again. David and Andrea offered to watch all four kids so that we could out to dinner and actually enjoy it! What a rare treat! We went to Ra a sushi place in Legacy Center. I highly recommend it if you like sushi - great place! We had a great time and as were driving home, I got two picture messages on my cell phone. The first was a picture of Zac on the potty with toilet paper covering his man parts. It was funny until I saw the second picture! The next one was a photo of a big turd on the floor of our bathroom! Tom immediately called David to find out what the heck was going on. He wouldn't tell us anything until we got home.
Come to find out they were all out in our little pool in the backyard and Zac told David that he had to go pee. David got him out of the pool and told him to go in the grass along the fence! Thanks for that one David! But as Zac tried to pee he said "Uh, I have to go poop". So David sent him inside to go. Apparently Zac hurried into the bathroom but the light wasn't on. He has a little potty seat that he puts on the regular potty and we think that in his attempts in the dark to place the potty seat on the toilet, nature couldn't wait and he accidentally pooped on the floor! David was kind enough to take a photo of it and sent it to us! I'll spare you that imagine on the blog at least!
