Swords

In the tales of men, there is a long history of playing swords in the bathroom. I remember as a kid, whenever I had to pee, I was usually able to get a friend or one of my brothers to cross pee streams while calling it swords. Not sure why we did it, but it just happened. Well the genius that I am, I thought it would be a great idea to teach Trenton the concept of swords to encourage him to pee while standing up (one of the greatest advantages to being a man). Well the idea officially was put in the "poor decision" category today as when he had to pee he shouted lets do swords daddy. I said okay, but before I knew it Trenton had aimed completely out of the toilet and sprayed the shower curtain, wall, side of the toilet and the floor. Of course he thought this was funny and it was at this point that I realized two things. One, that it was going to suck having to clean that up. And two, maybe this is why all men struggle hitting the toilet water when peeing. So much for parenting ideas from dad...

I guess it's good I found out this story on here rather than in person because you made me laugh. Not sure I would have laughed while looking at the mess in the bathroom!

Landon... You don't need to teach that one. It is AUTOMATIC with boys. But two little ones together and they figure it out on their own. They are hard wired by God to do it I am pretty sure.

That is awesome. Your kid is funny.

And when I saw the title to this blog, I immediately thought of Will Ferrell as Alex Trabek telling Sean Connery (Darrell Hammond) "That's 's-words'".
