There are lots of sentences that I say that never occurred to me that I would say. I’ve witnessed events or actions that seemed impossible to take place. And yet it all happened. It’s part of parenthood.
Take Friday. As I open the garage door and looked behind me to watch Tornado E and Tornado S sharing a toilet and Tornado E resting his elbow on Tornado S’s head.

Yes. I had to say it. Why did I have to say it? Why would I ever have to say it? Shouldn’t he already have known to not touch people when peeing? To hold on and aim?
I was so underprepared for motherhood.
