Mommy Radar

Somehow I have developed a special kind of radar without my even knowing it. I'm not sure what initially sets off my detectors - is it a special type of quiet? A shimmer in the air? No matter, it works, and it is deadly accurate.

Yesterday, digging around under the deck, a prickle on my neck. Too quiet. I looked out to where Ana was not long before on the swingset - no Ana. I scanned the yard with my radar eyes. No Ana. Wait! A flash of blond behind the tree. Ana, what are you doing?


I forgot to mention, I also have some kind of superpower hearing - able to detect a falsehood in a single word.

What do you mean nothing? Tell Mommy what you are doing?

Nothing! I was just going potty outside.

Are you okay?

Yes, I am.

Radar alert! Radar alert!

I approached the subject for further investigation.

She was, in fact, alright if alright can be defined by soaking wet pants down around your soaking wet socks and shoes. Yep. Perfectly fine. Nothing wrong there.

Tomorrow's lesson - how to squat. Hey, I'm a realist superpower. I'm thinking this is a skill she's gonna need.

It is a skill she will need!!! Having Mikayla go to job sites with me she, we have developed the peeing/pooping in the great outdoors... I still take off socks and shoes and pants/underwear JUST in case!
