He Sure Doesn't Act Like MY Side of the Family!!!

Charlie is amazing his teachers and me with the creative ways he is thinking of to be naughty at school. They all have a slightly disgusting twist to them, which I am sure is an extra special delight for his pregnant teacher.

His latest installment today involves a toilet. When picking him up from school I heard the words every mother dreads when picking their child up from daycare, "Do you have time to chat a bit about Charlie's day?" Which is polite teacher speak for, "I am SO glad you are here to take this kid home because he was NAUGHTY! And he is making me crazy!!!"

While Charlie was using the restroom today, he thought it would be a good idea to stick his head into the toilet and lap up the water like a dog. And maybe I should clarify here that this idea struck his crafty little brain AFTER he had done some business in the water.

His teacher obviously has super powers, as she managed not to ralph into the same toilet Charlie drank out of. My pregnant stomach would not have been able to handle that.

I wasn't even sure what to tell the teacher after that one. Should I mention that he doesn't do that at home? I am sure she is thinking we have GREAT manners here at Casa de la Kleffman.

Sometimes being the mother of boys is just plain baffling. I mean, what in the world possesses you to do such a thing? When I pleaded with Charlie to tell me why, he looked thoughtfully at me for a moment and said, "Well, there was water there. And the toilet was open. And my tongue told me to do it." Right. Why didn't I think of that?!

He must take after his father's side of the family.

OH MY!! WOW! BJ does some pretty crazy stuff, too, but has (thankfully) never sipped out of the toilet. He did paint the toilet, sink, and urinal with blue paint once...

Yes, being a mom to boys is a strange and wonderful thing!

BJ tells me his brain gets all crazy and that's why he acts naughty. Whatever! I'm sure we should brace for years and years of these antics, right? I'll let you know if it's any better with a girl. Somehow, I think she'll have her own set of issues!
