95% of the time, Luke is so incredibly funny/smart/cute that I wouldn't mind having 10 more just like him.
But then something unbelievable happens and I seriously ask myself "Do I really want another one of these?"
This is a tale from the 5 percent.
We have been working with Luke on peeing standing up. He's still not potty trained, meaning he will still go in his pull-up and he almost never tells us he needs to use the toilet, but if we put him on the potty he will gladly do his business if he needs to go. We added in the stand-up pee a few weeks ago and he's doing well. He seems so proud of himself when he does it.
One morning I stood Luke on his stool and aimed him at the toilet. I left the room to give him some privacy. A short time later I could hear him peeing and he shouted "I did it!"
I ran into the bathroom to praise him only to find that Luke had done more than pee. Yes, dear readers, Luke had pooped on the floor while standing up. Granted I had never told him not to do that, but that's because I thought I didn't need to.
I immediately sat him on the toilet just in case he wasn't done. When he saw his turds he said
"I dropped something on the floor!"
Yes you did, Luke. Yes you did.
