Marking His Territory

Is everyone sick of the whole thing where I talk about how Jack is possessed by Bean? Are you like, "We know, we know. Your baby barks. Quit beating it with a dead horse (as my friend Holly was known to say)"?

Well I have just one more story.

Today I was trying to change a diaper when I realized I did not have a diaper within arms reach. Because I was in the living room. I said, "Luke, please run and grab a diaper. Jack, don't pee."

But then Jack got a glint in his eye, and a set in his jaw, and there was a little something about his stance, so I said, "LUKE! Please hurry with that diaper! Jack, don't pee, don't pee, don't pee!"

Luke sauntered in with the diaper some time after Jack had taken 3 steps back and peed on the tiny 5x8 rug, the only area on the main floor where the wood floor is covered.

I was shaking my fist at the heavens. No! No! No!

Luke said, resignedly, "Mom, Jack only peed there because that is where Bean used to pee."

(In other news, it may be time for potty training.)

Too funny! Wesley does that all the time in the bath - I swear he purposely stands up and pees IN the tub... while BOTH his brothers are in there with him. UGH.
