Who Ya Gonna Call? (Part Two)

Of course there’s a lot of ridiculousness involved in me toilet training my son, but I do my best to not let it get to me.  For instance, it’s absolutely vital that my son sees me “putting my pee pee in the potty” too, and while I’m not shy, that’s not an activity I’m used to having an audience for, and having him as an audience has proven to be difficult.

Oh, not because of any “shy bladder syndrome,” and not even really because this whole procedure absolutely fascinates my son, and I have to do this trick while also holding him back so he doesn’t get between me and the toilet and all the unfortunate splashing that would entail.

No, it’s difficult because he’s too young to appreciate my “Don’t cross the stream” joke(1), and I hate it when a joke flops with my audience.

(1) And though I linked to the IMDB quote page just in case someone out there doesn’t get the reference (which also, as promised yesterday, explains the post title), I suggest that if you don’t get it, don’t search for the quote.  Trust me, it’ll be more fun to just go watch the movie for yourself.
