At one point when we were potty training Theodore, he woke up in the middle of the night, went to his bathroom, and peed in the trash can.
Today, Radcliffe comes to me and says: ‘Hey, mom, what would happen if I peed in the trash can?’
Me: ‘You are 7. You better not have peed in the trash can.’
Radcliffe: ‘But, it was an accident. I thought it was funny.’
I’m starting to understand why my house smells like urine.
Me: ‘YOU ARE 7! Old enough to know better. Let’s go upstairs and you’re going to clean it up.’
Radcliffe: ‘Good news, mom, there’s none on the walls.’
