Surprise…….it’s a guest blogger

I’m thrilled to mix things up a bit today and trade posts with Casey, the mastermind (and mom) behind Quilao Triplets. She’s one of my oldest blogging buddies and has the funniest triplet stories I’ve ever heard. If you haven’t already paid Casey a visit, now is the time. After you check out my guest post (it’s the phone etiquette post I promised), browse around. And around. You won’t be sorry. Promise.

So without further ado, here’s a little “birdy” talk:

One of my BIG jobs over the summer was to get the girls potty trained. Really it was more like I HAD to get them potty-trained because preschool was starting soon and they couldn’t go in diapers.

So this new milestone in our lives has made our outings more interesting. Lots of trips to the potty between three toddlers.

Lucky for me, my husband has been willing to pitch in and take them along with him if needed.

After one trip recently, I noticed my husband had this weird look on his face as they were walking out. In my mommy brain, I start running through all the scenarios in my head. Did my daughter put her hands all over the toilet or floor and then stick her hand in her mouth? Did she pee on herself? Did she clog up the toilet with a roll of toilet paper? What was the deal?

When my husband sat down next to me, he leaned over and said, “I tried to keep her back, but she kept looking.”

As calmly as possible I ask, “Looking?Looking at what?

My husband says, “She thinks I have a birdy in my pants.”

I almost choked on my Jamba Juice before I started laughing hysterically.

And now she wants to know where mama’s birdy is.

But like all good mothers, I just laugh and then pretend I don’t hear her when she asks the question. Because seriously, who can talk their way out of a birdy in daddy and mommy’s pants?

    This one leaves me speechless. As I’m sure it would in real life! There are some mommy moments I’m just not looking forward to!

    Fun guest post! Casey is hilarious. I can’t imagine potty training three at once. Yikes.

    Birdies in her parents’ pants. Remind her of this story when she gets older and she’ll be MORTIFIED!

    You’re right! Casey is very funny and I agree…this is one of those times when ignoring our children’s questions is in everyones best interest.
    I’m off to read Angie’s post. What fun!!

    Okay, I will be adding her to bloglist. Sounds like our children need to get together for a playdate!
    At least she thought of a birdy and not a snake….:) Innocent enough.

    That is so funny! I love the things kids say!

    A little girl I know saw her daddy, and was overheard telling her friend that “My daddy has hair on his bum and pees out of his tail!”

    Funny. Much nicer than what my daughter has said to her daddy! Although, she made his day with her comment!!

    I can’t imagine training 3 – I’m scared of what training 2 will bring.

    What a crack up! We have had a few choice “child interpretations” that leave us rolling on the floor. My husband and I can’t wait to tell each other the children’s antics for the day. Thanks for sharing!

    so you call it ‘birdy’ too there huh? we also call it so, in Indonesian of course (burung).
    does it look like a bird at all?

    Sydney says

    good grief, I can’t imagine potty training three at once! you deserve some sort of mommy prize for that one! as for the birdy comment… that’s priceless!

    my son likes talking about his “peep”… he’s asked where my peep is… i about died laughing.

    That’s absolutely hilarious. My husband is terrified about having to take my daughter with him into the bathroom for that exact reason.

    My children, who are obsessed with Animal Planet, began playing animals that had a tail in the front like their father. Abi even drew some ‘wonderful’ pictures. so much fun – this age.

    Oh no.

    I hate stuff like this.

    My boys always want to know what my tampons are for.

    I just have selective hearing too.
