Confessions of a five year old boy

For those of you who don't have any boys, here's a little taste of what it would be like. An "only a boy" moment where you aren't sure if you should laugh, or be absolutely horrified. For those of you who do have boys, feel free to laugh along in knowing. Or gag along in knowing. Your choice.

The Boy: Hey mom, guess what?

Me: what bud?

TB: Last night, when I was sneaking to the bathroom to go potty..

Me: What? Why were you sneaking to the bathroom? You can go anytime you want.
TB:  Well, I was asleep and then I woke up and I had to sneak to the bathroom. Well, when I was sneaking to the bathroom I thought the garbage was the potty.

Me: You thought the garbage was the potty? What do you mean?

TB: I thought the garbage was the potty so I started peeing in the garbage, and then I remembered the garbage wasn't the potty, so I went the rest of the way in the toilet.

Me: ( fighting back a gag) Are you saying you peed in the garbage can?

TB: Yes..

Me: When was this, last night? Awhile ago? 

TB: It was last night, no I think it was a couple days ago.

Me: Oh man, that is so gross! Why didn't you just tell me?

TB: Well, I just remembered!

On a side note, I was in the bathroom yesterday and thought it had a pretty pungent odor. This conversation explains so much. 

I have yet to brave the walk to the bathroom to solidify the story....


  1. That is hillarious! I love those moments...when they are so honest that all you can do is laugh and not get upset! Kaid once forgot to put the toilet lid up and peed on the lid...classic.

  2. That is hilarious! At least it was in the trash and not the wall or floor though.. right?! Cute kid.

  3. Too funny! My dad once peed in my grandpa's boots!
