the elephant in the room

For reasons that only make sense if you are two years old, Greggory used the Elefun Game for target pee-practice while he was playing in our unfinished basement downstairs with the other children. I didn't get the memo, but apparently an Elefun Game makes quite a handy toilet in case of an emergency. (Emergencies can include laziness in not wanting to use the upstairs bathroom). I guess I can kind of see his point of view. They are both...shiny? with a hole in the middle?

I was less than pleased on the matter as I carried the dripping Elefun Game to the garbage. Greggory followed me upstairs, telling me that I needed to get that "thing, er rather, fing" out of the garbage and I reminded him that it was now broken because he had just peed on it.

He insisted that he hadn't peed on it, but in it so it would be fine.

On my wall, I have a sign with a quote by President Hinckley reading, Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.

I wonder if he was including two-year-olds in that statement?

Ah man. No more Elefun? That's a bummer. At least he didn't pee on the floor.

Hey at least he has good aim. I still have to clean it off the floor when my 2 year old misses!!!

I have seen my 3 year old walk PAST the bathroom, out the door, down the stairs, across the patio and halfway across the yard so he could whiz on the bushes. Must be a guy thing. :) So long, Elefun!

The two year olds might have to be "endured". Great story. You should write a book about the humor of motherhood. :)
