Save Me From Boy Humor

I was in the kitchen this morning, prepping shrimp for tonight's dinner by getting the peeling and de-veining (one of my least-favorite kitchen tasks, by the way) over with.

Grasshopper was in the den being babysat by Handy Manny (have you ever noticed that the character on Handy Manny with the bad comb-over is named Mr. Lopart? or rather LOW PART!?! I only realized this after watching approximately 57,000 episodes. I am slow. And easily entertained, apparently.) and suddenly announced that he needed to go potty.

"Mommy I need to go potty!"

"Well, then go, Sweetie! You don't need me for that."

"Yes, I do!"

"No Grasshopper. You don't. You're a big boy, and you can go potty on your own. I'm busy right now."

He runs for the bathroom and a few seconds later is calling for me again. I contemplate feigning deafness, but ultimately decide that perhaps he has had some aiming issues or maybe needs a body part wiped (ahem) and give up on the shrimp so that I can investigate.

"Hang on, I'll be right there!"

"Hurry up Mommy!"

I head for the bathroom while he continues to urge me to hurry.

"Okay, dude. I'm here, what do you need?"

"You almost missed it Mommy!"

"Missed WHAT Grasshopper? I'm trying the get things done this morning and..."

"The Pee Party!"

"The what?"

"The Pee Party!"

"Grasshopper, what in the world is a pee party?"

"It like a Tea Party!"


"Yes! But different. It's funnier than a Tea Party!"


"Mommy? Where you going Mommy? I still having a Pee Party. Mommmmmmyyyy!"

Hee hee! I'm not sure what I dislike more... wiping the poop off my kids or cleaning it off the shrimp. At least the shrimp make a tasty dinner when you're done. The kids, not so much! ;)

I think I might have stuck around to see what a pee party entailed.

Ah, a pee party! Maybe next time you can RSVP that you're busy ahead of time.

Grasshopper seems to have a great (and creative) sense of humour!

O sings the old Eddie Murphy/Rick James tune "Potty all the time!!"

Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!! I wonder if he could invite my son to this Pee Party. Maybe he'd take an interest in getting out of diapers then...
