whassat?

i'm slow getting around these days...
& sunshine boy decided that it's time to start announcing every bodily function that has occurred, might occur, is occurring RIGHT NOW or may occur in the near or distant future.
i'm gonna be honest here & admit that Sloanie has been bearing the brunt of the potty training duress that seems to have begun. i just can't whip him up in my arms & make a run for it - so instead, at his first mention of that word, "poo?" i holler for Sloanie (who is my arms & legs) & she deals with the mess, or the wait, or the success, or the... (you get the idea).
Tuesdays though, my big 3 have violin lessons - & while i was at home with the younger 4, suddenly Gage came up behind me & suggested in a calm voice, "poo" - like he was mentioning a book he had just read - or a symphony he thought i might like...
i spied Charter & as i jumped up & grabbed my crutches & started hobbling, i told him to grab his brother & put him on the potty....
When i arrived i saw Mollen howling & pointing, "you got pooooooo on the toilet, Charter!"
& indeed, he had pulled down the pull up & without noticing it's soiled state, had obediently put his brother on the toilet.
This is when it got funny.
Mollen was completely nonchalant... like, 'Yeh, i see that poo, it's not gonna bite me, mom'll clean it up... it's kinda funny... ok, it's hilariously funny...'
Gage was a little more concerned, 'um, can someone bigger pulleeze take over this situation because this is obviously getting out of control...'
But Charter...
Sweet Charter...
He was undone.
i walked in & when he saw what he had done, he grabbed his head in his hands & cowered back by the sink, shaking in horror, squeezing his eyes shut, sounds of revulsion escaping his clenched lips. i thought for a minute he was gonna dry heave.
i sent him out & decided he's off the hook as far as helping with potty training goes.
Either he can't take it...
or he's an evil genius who discovered how to escape the worst job ever...
Whatever it is, i say he earned his freedom.
