It's a canoe race...


Okay boys and girls, that’s our schedule for the day. Any other questions or comments?


Jack: “Did you know I can hold my pee for a really, really, really long time?” (Big smile)


Me: “Huh. Well. Are you experimenting with that theory right about now?”


Jack: “What does that mean?”


“That means – go to the bathroom. We’ll wait.”

So my kid is starting preschool and she's about 95% potty trained.

I fear she will pee pee all over things cause she'll be so darn excited :)

Frau said...

You have such talented kids this year and they are so funny!

Pippa said...

It means that in my house too!

plainolebob said...

VM. eggsactly.

Vodka Logic said...

The operative word being "experimenting" we know they don't always work.
:)

Kat said...

I had to learn that skill on road trips with my dad! "Hey dad I got to pee!" "Ok next exit I promise!" *60 MPH past next exit...*

LadyFi said...

My kids can literally hold it ALL day!

Alix said...

You're easy, VM. He totally played you. Gone are the days of raising hands and asking for hall passes.

otin said...

I used to be able to hold my pee forever! I could drive from NJ to NC, drink 3 cups of coffee and do the whole drive without peeing! I barely make it out of my driveway now! hahaha!

Beth said...

Nobody can hold their pee as long as teachers can. Nobody.

They should make an Olympic sport with that talent.

Irish Gumbo said...

I thought that was a submarine race...oops, never mind...

Brian Miller said...

this will come in handy in later life when faced with rush hour traffic after too many cups of coffee...

The Blonde Duck said...

Tomorrow, it's waffles of course. Slathered in syrup.

Lynn from For Love or Funny said...

If only peeing was more exciting...our kids would do it more often.

Gaston Studio said...

Boys! They've always been able to hold their pee longer than us girls! It's just not fair.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

So funny. Now he wants to boast of holding it, and in just a few years he'll want to claim he has to pee frequently to get out of class and roam the hallways...

confused homemaker said...

Not a talent that he really is going to be proud of in a few years given UTIs aren't that funny when they are yours.

Sara said...

That child is going to be a senator.

CSY said...

I WISH my bladder was that strong, but after 3 kids NOTHING is where its supposed to be!

just making my way said...

Love it. I really think my 3.5 yr old is going to be the kid who is not potty trained by kindergarten. Girlfriend has NO interest in it. Sigh.

The Good Cook said...

Such talent! His parents must be sooo proud!

FRANNIE said...

How cute is that, until he can't hold it anymore and it's at the worst time. :)

Secretia said...

Why do they always want to see how long they can hold it?

SkylersDad said...

My once mighty bladder has seen better days now that I am one the downward slope past 50!

Steven Anthony said...

You have the best conversations...lol

Meeko Fabulous said...

I was THAT kid in the classroom! LOL! I didn't want to go to the bathroom because I was afraid I'd miss something. (Overachiever??? LOL!) My teachers were pretty good at spotting it though (I think my mom clued them in).

Captain Dumbass said...

They never tire of that one.

Kate Hanley said...

Cracks me up. Seriously, any kid who mentions any part of the bathroom should be sent there - it's like a code for "I gotta go."

Susan said...

I can't.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Princess Nagger 'experiments' with trying to hold it as long as possible. When I notice her doing the 'pee dance' I have to order her to go pee. ;)

Grand Pooba said...

Of course I have to read this post as the same moment I am dying to go pee!

Julie said...

Ahahahahahahahahha....

blueviolet said...

Good call, teacher.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Now that's the kid to take on a roadtrip.

adrienne said...

That must open up a lot of career possibilities. Toll booth operator is the first one I can think of...

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

I love your stories.

Heifer.

Angie Ledbetter said...

With your intuitive and decoding skills, you could work for the CIA.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

'sperimenting 5 year olds is always iffy.... espeically when there is pee involved.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Where do kids come up with this stuff :-)
What a crack up.
xo

Laszlo Brown said...

At least Jack wasn't on a canoe.

U R U! said...

Hey,


My son told me the other day a boy got sent to the principal's office during recess. He couldn't believe it. I asked him what the boy had done for that to happen.... he said he was showing the girls his pee pee....oh, the proud parents after THAT phone call!!

Awake In Rochester said...

I'm at the library experimenting with that very same theory right now. =~o

CatLadyLarew said...

The most difficult part of teaching small children is interpreting everything they say in a timely fashion!

Bethany said...

Haha! It reminds me of a boy I have who always insists he doesn't have to go to the bathroom, but has a certain dance he does when he needs to pee...lol!

bingo lover said...

haha! funny! ok. this just reminded me when i was younger. my classmate really told me a scary story about the comfort room. So, during the class, I felt like peeing. I know how to ask permission to go to the CR but my thoughts overshadowed my voice.So, there- I did it inside the class! And I was like, did i just pee?

Barrie said...

VERY funny!!

KaLynn said...

you just kill me!! you must be an awesome teacher!

Scary Mommy said...

Good call, indeed!
