The Longest Wait

    Dying here. Thank you for making my coffee come right out my nose.

  2. Rae Ann says:

    What a trip your “friend’s” kids are.  when I was a kid, I was convinced that if I did not rock back and forth it was going to get stuck.

  3. Kimberly says:

    This is the most hilarious post I have read in a long, long time!!!  I am glad I have a child who poops very quickly.  After all I do not own an iphone and would not have the opportunity to read war and peace while waiting.  🙂 

  4. Mine is still in diapers, so luckily we don’t have to deal with this yet (potty training is overrated, no?) But, I can clearly remember my brother…ahem…a friend’s brother doing this in the car!

       My, uh, friend’s husband claims it’s the car vibration that causes the potty trips. Makes sense to me! I mean, my friend! I know nothing about this issue, personally.

    My “friend’s” child would feel the need to put her pants on her head and push down on her head to make the poo come out. All while singing or humming. There are pictures to prove it to said child when she’s older!

    Ok, I’ll admit it.  I do not miss that “stage” of that life… Lovin’ my teens.

       That’s how I felt about the baby phase. I don’t LOVE babies like some of my friends do- We got through it and it was fine, but I had so much more fun being a mom once my kids could walk and talk!

  7. Digital Dave says:

    Lindsay, that is hilarious!

    What is it with the motion of the car that inspires poo-poo? Vibration? I do know that my girls quickly developed bladders with the same capacity as the gas tank. My eldest and I had to take a road trip with another mother/daughter duo and we didn’t even get to the state line before we had to make a pit stop. After they got out of the car my 11 year old looked at me, rolled her eyes and said ‘this is going to be a loooong trip, isn’t it?’ She was right. I’d estimated 8 hours for the drive and it took over 10 because the duo insisted on stopping for drinks, then 30 minutes later for potty. Never again!

      My husband shares your car motion theory! He says it gets kids’ digestive systems moving.

      • nundu says:

        I, on the other hand, conk out asleep within 10 minutes of riding in the passenger seat. My husband says I have a button on my bottom. 😀

    My littlest child exactly. However this one requires use of either an iPhone or iPad. Or a Word Search puzzle. Thank you for sharing your “friends” story.
