Horribly funny

Have you ever had one of those moments when something happens that makes your child hysterical with tears but it strikes you so funny?! It's awful....as a parent you're to be protecting, nurturing, and comforting as the situation calls for but sometimes you can't help but laugh. This happened to Stephen this week.


We babysat a little girl for two days this week who is in the process of being potty-trained. I have a seat insert that fits on the toilet that we used with our boys (they would not use a potty chair, only the real thing which was actually quite a blessing for me...mess wise) that I put in place for her. Sometime after her daddy picked her up Stephen must have been playing in the bathroom and stuck his head through the seat. He couldn't pull it off because his ears were in the way and he became quite upset. Philip carried him squalling down the hall saying, "you've got to see this!" I laughed, bless his heart, he was so upset but it was too funny!
