Raising Her Right

I've been meaning to blog about this for a while......

Several days ago I was "assisting" Oda Mae in the bathroom. I think mainly, I was just waiting for her to finish so that I could go. That's the problem with a 1 bathroom house. Especially when you're the only guy with two females. [We're moving before she becomes a teenager!]

Let me preface by saying that Oda Mae is somewhat fascinated by the fact that sometimes Daddy stands up to go potty and sometimes he sits down. Just this morning, she was sitting at the table eating her breakfast when I told her that I would be right back, that I had to go potty. She quickly responded with, "Are you going to stand up or sit down?" When I didn't answer her she proceeded to yell her question while I was taking care of business getting louder every time I did not answer her.

Anyway, after she had finished going to the potty I told her that I had to go. She of course asked me if I was going to stand up or sit down. I told her that I was going to stand up. She promptly said that she would get the potty ready for me and proceeded to raise the lid. :)

I think this should be one of my rewards for staying at home to raise my child. The lid of the potty should be raised by every female after they finish. Stay-At-Home-Dads.....UNITE!
