Just to Explain, She Learned it From Her Big Brothers...

Marin still has an abnormal interest in bathing. Yesterday she was throwing things in the bath and making a mess so I made her leave the room.

Me- “Ok, that’s enough. You’re done. Go downstairs.”

Marin walked out but I heard her say, “Mommy, asshole.” (She says “a-ole” but it’s pretty clear what she’s saying.)

I ignored it but the Katie came running to report Marin.

Katie- “Uh-oh! Marin said the “A” word!”

Marin didn’t deny it and confessed instead- “I say it, “A” word.”

This morning she was over the side and in the bathtub with me before I had a chance to object.

Me- “I guess you’re taking a bath with me.”

Marin- “Yeah.”

We had a few moments of peace before Marin announced, “I peed!” I briefly toyed with the idea of calling her an asshole but elected not to.

I'm sorry, but that one had me cracking up. I guess because I picture Marin doing that (even though I have never met you or her).

I love your blog. Please most more often, or else...

...I will just have to be patient.

Fabulous! That IS funny. My kids have been toilet trained for ages but still pee in their bath. I have been unsuccessful in training them not to for some reason.

Ha! I seem to remember a post or two where you wrote about some of the things you'd say to other drivers!

Stacie- I'm happy you didn't give up on me! I'm trying to do better. I was having blog guilt...

Julia- Marin is doing great with the potty training. I always tell everyone to go potty before bathing, getting in the car, going to bed, etc. I forgot to remind Marin since she climbed in so quickly so it was my own fault.

Tim- I've never uttered a foul word, as you know....

You showed amazing parental restraint there..

At least pee from a healthy individual is sterile. It even acts as a moisturizer for the skin...she was in essence giving you the gift of softer, blemish-free skin.
