Oh my dear, dear Nathan. You my son are one of a kind. And I don't say that clichely.. (yeah, your momma just made that word up). You are just your very own person. There is no one even remotely like you.. well.. besides your daddy when he was your age. But let's not split hairs here.
Tonight was a prime example.
It probably started while we were in line to see Santa. It took forever to get to see him because it was also "bring your pet night". Which was cool. It gave you and your siblings something to look at. You wanted me to "hold chew". While holding you, you kept grabbing "yourself" and I asked what you were doing. "Just holdin' my 'googi' (that's what we call your little penis.. as do you and your siblings and the last few generations on your Gramsie's side of the family.. digressing...). We finally get up to the front and your picture was taken. You smiled wonderfully. We get the pictures and go to play at the indoor playground inside the mall. You were running around having a great time. Your daddy called you over to tie your shoe. So you climbed in his lap. While he was tying your shoe you grabbed yourself again and said you had to go potty....
And not two seconds later you say.....
Wait for it... wait for it..
"Oh well!" (in a long drawn out southern drawl)
Your daddy gets this confused yet shocked look on his face.. turns to me and says...
*side note here: I am laughing uncontrollably while typing this.*
"Did he just pee on me???.... Yes.. he just did."
And you did.
I held it together all through the mall. Kept my mean mommy face on and told you that you really knew better than to wet your pants. I kept it together while getting you and your brother and sister buckled into your seats.
But when I looked at your daddy as we were driving off to head home (no change of clothes were found) I couldn't hold it together anymore.
I laughed and laughed.
Your daddy found no humor in the situation. Even questioning why I was laughing.
I will probably laugh about that for a good long while. The priceless expressions on your face and your daddy's will keep me smiling for quite some time.
Thank you for the laughs!
