Last night around 9, after finally getting both kids tucked in and collapsing on the couch, Nate sits up and says, “What stinks?  It’s like something smells like urine.”

Really?  You think?

I have a six month old dog who is still not house broken, and a two-year-old son who is in the early stages of potty training.  I clean up an average of 19 rivers (RIVERS) of pee every day, and my fair share of poop as well.  When I’m not finding pee on the floor, I’m lifting people up and down off the potty, changing their underwear, and washing pee soaked clothing.  I haven’t showered in a couple of days, and as we speak, I’m sitting on a couch that has been puked on, peed on, drooled on, and had juice spilled on it…and that’s just in the last week.   So where could that smell be coming from?

I have to go.  Ellie is calling out from the next room, “Moooom, Scotty just peed on his pillow.”
Of course he did.

Blech…sorry.  That doesn’t sound like much fun….  In fact, I might be a little nauseous thinking about all those bodily fluids you have to clean up.  But I was glad to read you might be getting Scotty potty trained before baby.  That could make this all worth it, right?

Oh, I am so sorry. I had to laugh though.  I feel like a spend half my day dealing with pee too, although fortunately most of it is in Bridget’s little potty.  She does have no problem, though, squating down anywhere in the grass and going “peet” as she calls it.  Oh boy, I hope it gets better soon, because soon there will be a nice sour milk smell to go along with all the other smells!

Oh man. You should have been in WL today…I don’t know if I should post the story on xanga, but Christa and I had an interesting experience with someone going in the middle of the playground…both kinds! So this post just made me laugh about how all of our lives are so immersed in gross stuff these days 😦

Sorry, Deb, I heard from more than one person about your pee story.  It just made me laugh.
