I Can Do That!

One day my son might kill me for retelling some of these stories but they are just too funny not to share. The beauty of a five old cannot truly be expressed in words. The honesty and innocence are so gratifying and so much fun. Also, he's a lot smarter than me.

Earlier this week we had a conversation about the best way to mark your territory. This took place while we were camping in the woods. Of course, we live in LA where there are no woods. So, actually, we were in a tent alongside the LA freeway.

So here is a condensed version of our discussion.

"Daddy, I have to go pee."

"Just step outside the tent, son, and take care of it."

I peeked outside the tent to watch. To my surprise, my young son did not simply unzip his pants and urinate in the gutter, as I've taught him. He lifted his leg and placed it on top of a fire hydrant, and proceeded to pee on the hydrant.

"Who taught you to do that son?" I asked him.

"I saw a dog do it and I thought: I can do that!"

You cannot help but smile at this. I love that little boy.

Hey, dog, get away from us. Scram! Go! Get out!

So, no comments on this one. And I thought this was my best post ever. Ever! And controversial too. But maybe urination isn't your thing. That's Okay. Sometimes I write about other stuff, like toilet paper.
