Adventures in the Outdoors..

My friend Jennie and I took her kids down to a river to take them swimming. We had a blast watching the kids run in and out of the water, enjoying the freedom of being outdoors and playing in the water.

However, there are a few things I realized about spending an afternoon with kids... sometimes there are minor "inconveniences" and you have to think on your feet to help them out. Thankfully Jennie and I both grew up in the country, so we were able to help them out.

First incident? Kid A has to pee and turns to Jennie and says, "Where's the bathroom?" Her response? "All around. Pick a spot. Make sure you watch where you're peeing." He looks at her like she has five heads. But, he did it.

Next incident? Kid B shouts, "Mommy! I have to go pooooooop!" Jennie and I had to make a game time decision. We told him to plop a squat. He, also, looked at us like we had five heads. The squatting wasn't too bad, but when he asked how he was going to wipe? Jennie handed him a leaf. It was quite hilarious.

Not so hilarious? He pooped in his pants a little bit later and shouts to us, "Mommy! I pooped in my pants.. what do I do?" Mom's great idea? Take them off and get in the river. That was a great idea, until he swims out to us and says "Oh! It fell out of my bathing suit." We assumed it was floating upstream, right? Fast forward about five minutes and I feel something squishing under my heel. Yes, I stepped in poo.

Darn kids.
