What NOT to do
There are a lot of things I think everyone should do.
I think everyone should
Eat Indian food
Look at an Ikea catalog
Wet their pants all the way
Go to a soupus
Shop for clothing out of season
Here is ONE thing you should never do...
Never teach your sons the words, "anus" and "rectum."
Never do that.
I apologize upfront to everyone they know, to the AWANA workers, their Children's Worship Leaders and my neighbors.
I should have skipped that part in their digestive system unit.
I know that now...
After I've heard things in my house like...
Two boys wrestling on a bed, laughing...one yells out..."Get away from my anus."
Hayden walks in, hands down his pants (common posture for little boys, I swear, some days I want to cut off their arms)...I say, "Get out of there." Hayden says..."I wasn't touching my anus."
Three boys jumping from the top bunk onto a mattress on the floor...
"What are ya'll doing in here?" I ask as I enter the room....
"Jumping on our anuses."
You live and you learn.
They have been saying the most awful things...but I can't get onto them with a straight face...I start with a straight face...and then I start smiling and walk away.
