Here's an episode of "As the Morning Turns" starting Caroline and Bryce (and of course, ME!)

Bryce and I are sitting at the breakfast table eating our cereal (or not eating if you're Bryce) while Caroline dances around entertaining Piper in her pack n' play since she already finished her cereal. I notice Bryce is fidgeting in his chair.

Me: Bryce, do you have to go potty?

Bryce grimacing: No. I'm just holding myself so the pee doesn't come out.

Me: Bryce, you need to go potty.

Bryce: I have to go potty.

I pull out his chair for him to get down from his booster.

Bryce: I don't have to go.

I don't make him go because it's getting late and he'll go when he's ready.

Again, Bryce starts fidgeting and making a weird grunty noise.

Me: Bryce, do you need to go to the bathroom?

Bryce: YES!

I pull out his chair and he runs down the hall to the bathroom.

2 seconds later

Bryce: Waaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: Bryce, what happened?

Bryce: I peed on the carpet!!!!

Caroline runs to look and check out the situation.

Caroline: Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! He peed on the carpet!!! That is my favorite carpet. Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bryce: Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! I peed on the carpet.

So now both kids are crying (Bryce over the accident and Caroline because her "favorite carpet" has pee on it) and I'm trying to take Bryce's pants off of him and get the little rug up off the floor to put it in the washer.

Tears are dried, rug is in washer, Bryce is eating his mushy cereal naked from the waist down and Caroline is back to dancing for Piper.

Is it any wonder I look like Cruella Deville some mornings by the time I get to work?
