Honestly, I couldn't even think of another name for this post, because it was just so damn funny.

Luc ("Luke"), the two year old, told me he had to go potty (#2). I helped him pull down his pants and he sat down on his little training potty and made himself comfortable. I could tell it was going to be a while, so I told him to just yell for me when he was done.

After a couple of minutes, he calls, "Supernanny! I needa book!"

I popped my head into the bathroom. "Excuse me?" I asked, sure that I had him incorrectly.

"I needa book!" he repeated impatiently.

I looked around. " about The Baseball Book of Knowledge?" I asked, grabbing the only book in the immediate vicinity.

"Okay!" he agreed.

I handed it to him, and 2-year-old Luc opened the book and started "reading" it, humming to himself, as he sat on the potty.

It was just the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

So how do you like wiping poopy butts? :-) When Brent FINALLY got potty trained, John was telling the ladies at work, and they started talking about wiping their butts and stuff, and some of them have kids in Kindergarten and stuff. He had NO CLUE that he was gonna have to wipe Brent's butt for that long. He says as far back as he can remember, he always wiped his own butt. Granted, he's really old and can't remember that far back :-)

Crap. You took the burn right out of my mouth.

Actually, though, yeah, I didn't know that even KINDERS needed help wiping sometimes until I started working at the preschool. That was news to me.

And, FYI...I DID up getting paid for last week. Interesting plot twist, eh?

Ooh, very interesting! Did you say something, or was she just feeling generous? ;-)

You got paid from Madonna? Or paid from who?

Jen said...

Yeah, she paid us for all of last week. (Well, except for the girl who also quit last week but didn't give her a full two weeks notice, but I don't blame her for that.)

Well, that is a funny story. I am glad that you got paid - you should of. The poopy butt thing - I have not had to wipe John's in a long time - I think it might have to do with the fact that I refused to do it even when he was first starting out - I always had him do it first and then I would make sure he did okay - tell me if any of you do that too and let me know if that might be the reason.
