There's no question about it.
My life is full of misplaced pee.

I'm sure I am not alone in this misfortune,
but I am pretty sure I have more than my fair share!

Dallin is my current top offender.
I can't complain tooo much, seeing how he potty trained himself at 19 months, but I am not sure why a three year old would just throw in the towel after almost 2 years of using a TOILET and instead, opt for going right in his pants!?!?!?

I'm baffled, but I just don't make a big deal about it.

I tried that with Justin.


I just have Dallin help clean it up and have him get new pants on.

Since I don't want to make a fuss, but am getting tired of dealing with the mess, I found the greatest book EVER about all things potty.

Potty Animals, What to know when you gotta go.

When I took it off of the shelf where a pillar of light had shone upon it,
 I felt like it had been written ESPECIALLY FOR MY KIDS!

I enjoyed it's antics to much that I even put it in my cart on Amazon as
 a must have for our already maxed out collection of kids literature.

I read it to my kids several times and they thoroughly enjoyed it without knowing my ploy.

Then, one morning while we were reading together, I noticed that Dallin was perusing the book once again, on his own.

Oh, what a proud mother I was for being so sly in my attempt to tame him.

Then, he got up from his reading and this is what I saw when I looked up from by book:

I don't know if you can tell, but right next to where he had sat reading, was a huge puddle of the yellow, stinky stuff.

I just shook my head in disbelief, and grabbed my camera,
but for some reason, I just can't convince myself to buy a copy of the book after all....

Misplaced urine can be very frustrating. We had issues with Haylee and Loralai painting with their diaper contents and eventually had to use duct tape on their diapers and put their pajamas on backward. This too shall pass. :)
