I was playing on the computer this morning and was interrupted by Billy yelling, "Honey, can you please come here?" I got up and found Billy and he proceeded to tell me that our oldest son decided to pee, YES PEE, off the second story banister. WHAT?
Honestly, I was upset, but it was almost more comical than upsetting, however, I could never let Gavin know that. Now, I know that I have never specifically told him not to pee off the banister, but what in the world was he thinking? I thought my biggest worries about anything coming off the banister would be cars/toys/balls and that was specifically explained as bad behavior. Billy and I both asked him why he did it and his best answer was "I could not make it to the bathroom and I really had to go." If you were wondering, the bathroom was another 5 feet so of course that explanation was not good enough....not that any explanation would work because there is no excuse for his behavior. He was sent to his room as we assessed the damage and tried to contain our laughter. As far as he knows, we were really mad (which we mostly were), but we could not quit laughing (inside of course). Thankfully, there were clean clothes (waiting to be put away) on top of the chair that received the bulk of the bad behavior.
Oh, and if you were wondering how we found out, he told on himself, he is only 4 and they do that to themselves. I know that will change in due time. :)
