warning: i'm going to talk about poop.




to that corner of my brain that is completely occupied by my kids' bowel functions:

someday that small part of my brain will not be consumed with thoughts like:
'did katers poop today?'
'did evie poop? what was the consistency?' [this matters when it's time for ev to eat and a decision has to be made between pears and bananas]
'did kate drink her poop juice today?' [aka metamucil but isn't the term poop juice just so much more appetizing??]

it's ridiculous how much time i spend thinking about my kids and their bowels.
please tell me i'm not alone.
i can't wait for the day when i can release this responsibility and worry to my kids.
imagine all the life problems i could solve with that brain space now free.
for example, i could finally decide between the light gray and dark gray corduroys that are sitting on my bedroom floor.
what a day that will be!

How true is this, haha! The joys of parenting:) I thought potty training would be the solution to so many problems but really they just added more.
I vote the lite gray!
