Important breaking news!
I posted the picture above on my 365 day picture blog with a blurb about how GREAT it is that my 5 year old scoops poop for me every day. He does. Before the kids play, he will grab the poop scooper and go through the yard in a systematic grid-like pattern and pick up Puppy Poops. I taught him the methodology. It goes back to my years of working as a kennel manager.
Anyway, it is GREAT! that James does this for me...willing, with joy, unasked...Really really amazing and great...until that moment...
Which let me give you a little back-story. My work has no AC where our offices are located so we have moved to the basement and set up temporary offices on the old lab benches. It has brought us all a little bit closer and well, people are in my business a little more than usual. Thus, the Daily Poop Scoop was born. I want my coworkers to steer clear of me and think I'm odd. Really. So daily, I update them on the status of my off-springs bowel movements and fun things that happen with it. It.Is.Awesome.
Last week it was the following conversation I relayed to them:
Set scene: James on the toilet taking his morning dump.
James: Mommy will you wipe my butt?
Me: Sure, Buddy. But you know, you are going to have to learn to do it by yourself cause when you go to school they can't do it for you.
James: I'll be nice and ask my teacher.
Me: No, Bud, you can't. You gotta do it yourself.
James: Mommy, are there alarms at school that go off if someone sticks their finger in their butt?
Okay, ya'll digest that a little bit.
Cue to my FB status of "My son just patted my face...if you get the Daily Poop Scoop, you know my horror."
Yes, James had stinky, poop under his fingernails, icky boy hands. Only it wasn't his butt he was messing with...No, he had a Problem Puppy Poop Pile (P4) and used his hands to scoop it into the pan. Probably in Section 3 Grid 4, the grass is especially lush there.
We are still working on the wiping butts, poop has germs and always wash your hands lessons.
Peace and LOVE Little Boys!!!!
