The Biggest Bang
Elspeth has been accident-prone today! All I've heard are thumps and bangs and cries from my normally well-coordinated child! But the biggest bang came, of all moments, when I was in the toilet doing number two. Oh, the yells! What could I do? Astonishing to think that a year ago such a course of action would have struck me as disgusting: I opened the toilet door, called her in to me, and picked her up to comfort her. Yes, while sitting on the loo. With a poop in the bowl. Charming! I cherish the hope that the overall experience was more beneficial (the hug) than traumatic (the circumstance).
