Once you have a baby boy you will come to understand the power of the water hose. I have a great personal story from first days of my son’s life. My Mother-in-law [MIL] has two children one being my wife and the other being my brother-in-law (he has a child that is 5 days older then Marc). She was able to spend a little time with him before coming to New York for our child Marc. She was our baby nurse (for lack of a better term). It was the second day of being home when a scream came from Marc’s room. My MIL screaming (in that funny yet upset way) He pee’d on me… I walk into the room to find her shirt covered in pee and seeing her have a look of disgust on her face (since a little actually got in her mouth). It was a rolling on the floor laughing moment for me (not so much for her). Today we still kid about it…
At this point I’ve been pee’d on more times then I have fingers and toes… I’ve learned the tell-tale signs of when he’s about to go. I consider it a parenting badge of honor (other then the fact that I’m adding to the laundry pile) but really its part of the passage into parenthood.
