When the kids and I walk the dog, my son likes to hold the leash and run up and down the sidewalk with the dog dragging behind him. After about 5 minutes of this the other day he ran up to me and handed me the leash. Confused, but relieved for the dog, I took over and resumed walking. Then there was a little panicked little voice behind me that piped up, “I have to pee!”
I turned around just in time to see my son standing in the grass between the sidewalk and the road with his pants down around his knees. Facing the road. Ready to pee. Just like the dog.
I can no longer blame my children’s bad habits on my husband, it’s totally the dog’s fault.
