The potty playdate

Today Jackson had a friend over to play after school. This particular friend is in his class at school, and his babysitter lives on our street, so while his parents were out of town, I offered to take him to preschool with us, pick him up, and bring him home to feed him lunch with my boys. My sister called the day before to say she and her kids were coming for a while that day as well. I picked up Aidan on our way to school, ran errands and did some cleaning while the boys were at school, and then headed to the pick up line at the school. I went to the playground to collect Sam, and we sat in the car with the battery on until it was time for Jack and Aidan to come out. BUUUT, when I went to start the car it made a wierd grinding/cranking sound instead of starting. I freaked. I was the second car in line, so this was going to be a problem. Luckily, there happened to be a mom AND dad in the car in front of me so the dad used my jumper cables to jump the car. Fine. Done, and thank heavens. Started up, and on our way. Turned out Jack had left his light on for a few days and drained the battery. Oops!
After we got home and ate lunch, my sister and her crew showed up and I decided the boys should go out and play, but Sammy was poopy. So I started across the living room to change him and as I glanced out the window at Aidan and Jack, I was shocked to see two bright white pairs of buns staring back at me from the back of the yard. I did a double take and sure enough, the two of them had dropped trow, and were totally peeing all over my mulch bed and bushes. EEEEWWW! So of course I opened the door and yelled "HEY! What're you DOING? STOP THAT!" at which point, Aidan made a beeline for the house, pulling up his pants as he came, and ran to the potty to finish his work, and Jackson penguined back to the house, complaining the whole time that I startled him and made him pee on himself. Well that's what you get! And do you wanna know what Ryan asked when I called to tell him at work? "Did you get a picture?" EW, no. Didn't stop to grab the camera. I had enough flashing for one day, thankyouverymuch!
