Default Hands down couldnt do it!!

As time have changed, my wife is home with my 6 and 3 year old. Been on the water the past two outa three days. Wife said they are yours tomorrow (today) while I do some crap for work! Mek no problem, I'll keep em.busy.......

Wife leaves around 11ish annnnnnnd by 12ish I'm ready to call it quits. Toys flying messes being made faster than I can recover. Ohh and I need to be in line to pick up lap top by 1 for 6yr school. No problem leave the mess , make sure both girl use the restroom before we go. 20 mins in line my 3 yr says I gota pee........... I'm 40 effin cars deep with another 80 behind me... here's a Flannigans cup....
needless to say, I was giving my wife hell about wanting to be a stay at home mom. She can have it, permission granted... eff this you can have it!!! Never been so ready to go back to work. Cheers..

Did that most of today, at least with the toddler. He went to bed early without a peep.

boys will pee anywhere if you train them to.
maybe girls will to

I know my sisters had no problem hanging over the side of my boat, or squatting out on the farm land where they were working

problem with this is training them young ones when not to do it

20 yrs ago.....coworker complained about cost of daycare. I think I was paying $145/wk back then . Each. $290/wk for both ,$58/day.


I told them, it was a bargain.
I wouldnt watch my own kids all day for that low amt $. Its work ...you cannot do anything else.

I took my three year old granddaughter out on my 15 ft flats boat. The wife said take a coffee can for her to pee in. I took a plastic one gal paint can. After a few minutes out on the creek she had to go. My wife set the can on the front platform, the little girl jumped up there and did her business. She had a 12 oz Sprite to drink. In less then 2 hours she went four times, she thought it was fun. Now when she is playing outside at our house she wants to use her paint can (it just happen to have held pink paint) instead of going inside. We live at the edge of a big field with no neighbors.

When daughter was about 3 we were at beach
She had to go, so i told her just go in the water.
She walked ankle deep, pulled her crotch of swimsuit to side, crouched a little and started peeing.

In front of a crowded beach....

two girls here. Both pee whereever. Not Tom boys either. Corner of boat, yard, pooping in dunes or woods, they don't care. We play outside, we have To use the bathroom, no biggy.

I couldn’t do it either. Two boys. 4 and 1:5. They drive their mama nuts at times but yeah, she puts some outside clothes on and let’s them go. Luckily we live on 100 acres or so where they can ride the buggy and explore. It’s a big deal when she goes out somewhere for a few hours and it’s just me and them.

when I was younger my cousin came up from Atlanta to stay with his grandmother (my great aunt) for most of the summer. My dads whole family basically lives on a 2 1/2 mile stretch of road in the country. Did typical country/farm stuff all summer. Got back home to Atlanta and went to the mall with his mom. Dropped his pants and peed right on one of those trees they have growing up out of the floor inside.

people that cannot stand to be around their kids all day should not have kids, or train them better while around them
more than likely discipline is lacking
