This Is Just to Say

I have found
the pants you peed in
that you hid in
your closet

and which
you were probably
I would never find

I forgive you
Even though they were disgusting
So smelly
and so musty

Love least they were just pants. My son tinkled in the corner of his closet for several nights when he was 3 or 4 because he was 'too scared' to walk the 2 feet to the bathroom.

hahaha...the great times of potty training! I found your blog from Lindsey's blog (I am Jamie Lea) is great to see you and your little family!

Was it beside the red wheelbarrow?

My friend's child had a brief stint using her dirty clothes hamper as a potty, because it was much more comfy.

So I don't know how to contact you any other way on this thing. This is Dan Koopmans. I live up in Ogden now, but I drove all the way down to good old PG to visit you at the high school. Found out you moved to Texas or something like that, but they told me about this blog you have. I don't want to write a whole novel of a comment so if you want, you should e-mail me. I have kind of a random question to ask you. Anyway, give me a write if you get a minute.

That is pretty funny. And enjoyable because it's so well written.

Sue said...

Ha ha ha ha ha Hilarious!

Karen said...

Okay. THAT was one of the funniest things I've read in awhile.

Leisha, my brother used to do the same thing in the closet, although I think it was more laziness rather than being scared!

Loved the poem!!
