Potty Talk

My neighbors were gone the week between Christmas and New Years, so I collected their mail for them. One day I noticed a MOMSense magazine (put out by MOPS International and Christianity Today) in the pile. I used to enjoy reading MOMSense when I was in MOPS a few years ago, so I decided to read through this issue. Ever since that day, I have been waiting for the online version of this issue of MOMSense to become available so I could share an article with you...
Have you ever been in a situation when your kids completely humiliated you? Perhaps they said something to a stranger that just shouldn't have been spoken, or they blurted out something you did which was really foolish and you wanted to crawl under a chair and hide. We've all had times as mothers when we regretted teaching our children to talk, when we've wished there was a way to erase from the air the words that just passed their lips.
But I must admit, my children have never done anything to me like the little guy in this story did to his mom! You've got to read it. You might want to stop first and use the bathroom, though, as I anticipate great amounts of laughter coming from you, and we don't want any "accidents."

That is hilarious!
I have had a few embarrassing potty talk moments. A few chuckles. But not like that. Thank you Lord!

That is so funny! Like momteacherfriend, I've had a few embarrassing interactions in the bathroom, but this one makes mine seem tame by comparison.

The big question is, do you think you could keep yourself from laughing out loud if you were one of the observers in that bathroom? I'd at least try to laugh with compassion...Is that possible?
