I don’t know what is funnier:
- My eight-year-old son peeing in a bottle.
- My fourteen-year-old getting so mad about it.
- My reaction to the whole thing.
My youngest son proudly told me that he had peed in a bottle and mixed it with “everything” he could find–shampoo, conditioner, liquid hand soap, shaving cream–to mix it all together for a science experiment.
“What did you do with it? Did you wash your hair with it?” I asked.
“No, it’s just sitting there in the bathroom. I’m waiting for it to explode. Is that what baking soda is for?”
Yikes. As I am envisioning exploding pee and bubbles.
Then, that evening, my oldest son witnessed the second experiment. And I hear this from upstairs.
“MOOOOOOOOOM! HE’S PEEING IN A BOTTLE!”
And I yell back, “YEAH, I KNOW! HE’S DOING A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT.”
In this family, we prioritize education. 🙂
