I looked at baby Cash the other day and said to Rick…
“He’s so cute. Couldn’t you just have one more?”
He didn’t respond but I noticed he started googling “how to get a quick vasectomy when your wife is a lunatic” on his iPad.
This week, I decided to take our 5 kids to the library after school. I mean, what could go wrong?
Other than Cash howling because he was apparently starving and the moment I sat down to nurse him, 3-year-old Chase said, “I have to poop.”
I tried to convince 8-year-old Dylan to take him to the bathroom but she claimed wiping poop is not part of her skill set. 6-year-old Summer was suddenly very focused on children’s literature.
I told Chase I would take him to the bathroom in a few minutes which caused him to yell out, “I HAVE TO POOP NOW!!” Okay, simmer down there boy. This is a library.
I stopped nursing Cash and brought Chase to do his business.
But he only peed.
Then I went back to feeding Cash and about 47 seconds later Chase said, “I have to poop.”
OMG. Poor Cash once again lost his chance at a meal, as I walked Chase back to the bathroom. Where he did indeed finally poop.
And I think the kids checked out books, although I don’t even know because I just handed my older girls the library cards and told them to take care of it. So we may have stolen them but whatever, at least they won’t be overdue.
Meanwhile, the twins are going to camp in a few weeks which is good because I asked Chase the other day who his friends are. This was the list.
2. Tommy Tom (his grandfather)
3. Matej (his cousin)
4. Cash (his baby brother)
See? Chase needs some non-family friends. You know, just a couple toddlers boys that he can hang with and tell them about his ridiculous mother who tried to get him to hold his poop at the library.
