Last night, I went to use the restroom as Lucas and I were heading to the pool for a swim. It looked odd to me. There was a HUGE wet spot in it. Much bigger than a kitten could make. I thought maybe the big cat had gotten in there, but it covered from one corner to the next- not how a cat does such things. Then I thought, maybe it was the dog? There was some wetness outside the box too.
Puzzled, I showed it to Peter and he was perplexed too. What dog would do that?
So, I left for the pool with Lucas. As I pulled out of the driveway, he cautiously says,
"I'm the one that peed in the litterbox"
Now here's a parenting moment.
Do you completely crack up?
Do you scold and yell and give a consequence?
To be honest "consequence" never even crossed my mind in that moment.
I was too busy holding back some intense laughter.
So I said, "Have you ever done that before?" (I suspected something one other time but thought he poured water in there)
He lifted 2 fingers. So, yes indeed he has done it twice.
Holding back the laughter I kindly said...
"Don't do that again, 'K?"
"no more peeing in the litterbox--got it?"
He said "OK"
I'm still chuckling writing this. It was a very funny moment.
I guess some things are just a little too tempting for a boy!
