Parents can go a really long time without peeing.
That’s because there never seems to be a good time to go.
Like you don’t want to drag your kids into a public restroom because you’ll have to start yelling, “Don’t touch that! Or that! Oh my gosh. Get off the floor!!”
And there is no such thing as a quick trip to the bathroom because suddenly every kid has to pee (or even worse poop) and of course there is the washing of the hands afterwards and the whole ordeal takes 20 minutes. If you’re lucky.

Or you can’t even figure out where the restroom is. Or there is a line. Or you just forget to go. Or whatever.
My point is – I came home the other day with 2 year old Cash and I hadn’t peed in like 4 hours. Was it really that long? I don’t know. But it was long enough.
I left my son in the playroom so I could pee for 30 seconds and maybe check Twitter and Facebook.
Right away, I knew it was way too QUIET.
Then I heard the chime the freezer makes when it has been left open too long. I hurried to the kitchen and was relieved to find that Cash had only unwrapped a stick of butter.
And then I noticed something else…
Oh mercy. How long was I checking Facebook? I guess for as long as it takes a 2 year old to unwrap a whole box of butter. Yes, he unwrapped each individual stick. He must be planning on doing a lot of cooking!
No wait, correction. According to Cash, they are blocks.
