Ok, I love my son but he is a freak!
See what I mean! Now how did this get in there? This was James as a gargoyle last year for Halloween!
What, where did this come from? This was James as the Joker this past Halloween!
I digress! What I mean is James thinks that every bump, bruise, mark, sore, itch, scrap, and tingle means he has some disease and he will probably need a shot and then die! Why, I have no idea! This past weekend he asked my husband what a colostomy was and what were the reasons a person might get one. Thank God my husband is a doctor. I would never know how to answer half of my sons questions! And let me tell you, my son asks a million questions about the human body. Sometimes my husband will forget who he is talking to when he describes a procedure so I do have to remind him to use layman's terms. Jim explained a few things and then he and I went back to cleaning the garage but not before James asked if he would ever have to have a colostomy. Jim said, "Honey as far as I can tell, I don't see why you would need one right now." James said, "whew good" and off he went with Claire on the trampoline. And we went back to cleaning where we spent most of our weekend and two trips to the Good Will! Wow, what a feeling to get rid of crap!
James did come back and ask a few more questions but I didn't really hear the details so no biggy! Later that day James went over to a friends house and we had Claire and ooooh, Kids Choice Awards! I cannot believe I had to sit through that, yuck! I could feel my brain just oozing out of my head just like that slime! James came back home around 10:30. I was reading in bed when I heard him come in. He asked my husband for a snack and they chatted for a few minutes and off to bed he went!
Flash forward ahead 3 hours and James is standing at "MY" side of the bed, crying! He is confessing that the reason he asked his Dad about the colostomy was because he thinks he needs one! He says, "I haven't pooped for 2 days!" In between muffled cries, he says, "I think I'm going to die! Wake up Jim your son needs you! You know being woken up like that is not good for the heart! We had a tough time calming the kid down but eventually we did! Jim explained that it is completely normal to not poop for two days and he should drink more water and eat some more fruit the next day. I gave James a hug and wished him good night as my husband took him upstairs. The last words I heard before going to bed, "Again", were "Dad, how many times do you poop a day?"
Never a dull moment around here, now I can't wait for him to ask me how many times I poop a day!
Happy Monday everyone! Do you know how many times you poop a day? Ha!
