You Know you have Boys When.....

You know that you have boys when the great thing of the week is daddy teaching how to pee in the backyard. Another phrase comes to mind "you might be a redneck if...."

Elijah is in serious potty training mode. He is doing really well. The triplets just look at him and they sit on the potty and then say "i done" and nothing comes of it. I do have to say that they are telling me when they are "dirty" more now and so we are close with them.

Now that it is hot outside we wait until after dinner to go outside, because our backyard is shaded by that time. The other night Esther wanted to sit on daddy's lap but her diaper was full so I started to take her diaper off and then everyone else wanted their diaper off. So I had four bare butts running around in the backyard. Elijah was running around holding his privates and so I asked him if he needed to pee and told me yes. So Noel taught him how to pee standing up and directing it toward the tree. I was laughing so hard that I thought I was going to pee my pants and then I see Elijah holding himself and running to the next tree. Then I see the three amigos following him and Esther trying to figure out why she did not look like Elijah. All I could do was laugh and enjoy the moment. Of course I did not have the camera with me so all I could do was take a picture of the ground so here it is.

Elijah found his underwear and he has been caring it around lately. Well I went to check on him because they were making noise to find that he had put his underwear on over his diaper but he had them on backwards. This is just another day in the lives of my "safari." There is never a dull moment and I have enough stories for everyone.(maybe I should write that book. LOL)

Your story is too funny - oh, I can't wait to potty train triplets! I remember when my husband taught my older son to pee standing up outside. He thought it was so cool, he went around trying to pee in all kinds of public places!

He's welcome to come pee on our compost pile. :) I remember when Josh learned to pee outside. It actually came in handy on occasion. Keep up the good work!
