Great post! Feel like I know you a little better now! From the sound of it your parents weren't the best role models??? Via blog I can tell you're an amazing mother. You're little ones are very lucky! :)

Ps. Have you told poop girl you know her DIRTY secret? I'd call her out on it...

The wife said...

I haven't told poop girl she's been discovered. I don't want to embarrass her, but I am still upset about it. I feel like it was completely disrespectful of her to do that. We are having another holiday party soon and I had to go ahead and lay the ground work about her NOT being able to spend the night. We'll see if she gets that!
My parents are a whole series of posts for a later date!!

Just Ask Beth said...

Snooty Primadona said...

Well done! I'm not sure I have the patience to do 50 things about me, much less 100...

Now, wait. This was a friend of yours who pooped in your PJ's? Is she two years old? That's the last time I poopied in my pants, lol.
