Why Little Boys Shouldn't Potty Outside!

My husband and son came home so excited yesterday. They had spent the whole day together visiting family and going to Pappa's cemetery for a visit. After seeing a Nana, an Uncle, an Aunt and several cousins the first thing out of my son's mouth was that Daddy let him go "tee-tee" outside on a bush and on a tree. I looked at my husband who was beaming and so proud.

This was my son's first big all day outing with Daddy without a diaper. I told my husband and son before they left to make sure that they go tee-tee at every stop. Well, turns out they took me literally including at Papa's cemetery. Good thing Papa would have thought it was a hoot!

My husband went to run an errand and I got my son ready for bed. As I was changing him, I noticed something funny. The instant he saw my face, he knew something was wrong and started asking what I saw. Can you guess????

Yup, a tick on his "privates" (as he calls them). I totally freaked. I had read online that someone said dish soap will cause them to pull their head out so off I ran to the kitchen with my son holding himself and screaming. All I had was green apple sented soap so I poured it on...Nothing happened.

I ran for the tweezers and pulled with all my might. That litter bugger finally came out with a good hunk of my son's skin in its mouth. Needless to say, my husband was so horrified and my son had a VERY bubbly bath from the dish soap!

Another victory for Mom!
