I had been helping with the school's Fall Book Fair. The school day was over and I gathered the kids and their backpacks and all their other paraphenalia and we were heading out the door to get Peter's allergy shots and then on to Faith Formation. I knew we would be in the car for at least 20 minutes so I turned to Peter and said, "Do you need to go to the potty before we get in the car?"
He nervously looked over his shoulder and then looked up at me and said with great disdain, "Potty? Seriously Mom!"
Baby talk is a hard habit to break after almost 8 years. I'll do my best to try though because I would hate to embarrass my kids.
"By the way honey, your shirt's on backwards," I whispered.
