As a general rule, we make numerous decisions daily. Most of our decisions are centered around a well-rounded thought process supporting the reasons behind such decisions. But then there are sometimes where you just don't take the time to think of all the dreaded consequences that could come from your actions, and the stupidity that you try so hard to hide just comes glaring through.
Such a thing happened today, and I will be the first to take full responsibility for the events you are about to read...
Heading to church this morning, we realized that we had forgotten to take Nathan "potty" before we left the house when he declared that he had to "go"..."really really bad" were his words. Not wanting to stop on the side of the road, I did what every well respected redneck would do...I grabbed an empty sippy cup. And he did have to go...really really bad. For fear that the contents would slosh out of the cup with any sudden movement, I stuck the lid back on the sippy cup and set a mental reminder in the left corner of my cerebral cortex to dump the contents when we stopped.
Obviously, the left corner of my cerebral cortex is already full because I totally didn't remember to empty out the pee cup when we got to church.
Fast-forward a few hours (we old baptists like to get our church on, and today was lunch Sunday). I buckled Nate into his seat and happened to look up at Emma making the most awful face with spit running down her chin. "UGH! What is that?" she said with utter disgust as she placed a slightly less-full orange sippy cup back into the cup holder beside my seat. "Did I just drink pee-pee?"
My father used to tell me almost daily that I wasn't truly mature until I thought of everything that could happen from my actions. I'm guessing I still have a ways to go to maturity.
