In case you’re like me and all the holiday festivities leave you feeling a bit harried and scattered, I thought I would just share a fun, quick story. Enough to give you a laugh, but not enough to totally derail you from tending to all the activities of this week and sneaking in what you can of those delightful Hallmark channel movies before the season officially ends.
This story is courtesy of my witty, cool cousin. God bless her sharing it with me and allowing me to share it with you. It’s the kind of story that is perfect for when you are having a sucky day and just think it can’t get any worse…it can.
Setting the scene, she was desperately trying to sneak in pee one busy night. Obviously, she left the door open, because closing it is of course a luxury of those people without young kids. Also obviously, the cat came in with her, because pets always like to make peeing a group affair. While she was releieving herself, she heard her 4 yr. old son saying that he needed to use the potty. She yelled for him to come to the bathroom and that she would be finished in a second.
You can imagine how the rest of this went down. He did come to the bathroom, he did get his pants down, but she just wasn’t able to switch out and get him on the seat fast enough. He started peeing right in the middle of the bathroom…all over the cat. The cat then took the opportunity to flee from the bathroom and fling the pee all over the house in his mad dash. The clean-up was so much fun.
Moral of the story: if you find yourself with a day free of pee on the cat, you’re doing fantastic. It might not feel like it, but things are going really, really well 😉
