It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.--Frederick Douglas




Three (more or less)
Today is Miss Riley's 3rd birthday.  I suppose I could love her more, but I don't know how.

This is an actual conversation we had yesterday.

The scene opens with me in the bathroom, door closed.

A tiny knock at the door and then;

"Grandpa, what are you doing in there?"

"Going to the bathroom."

"No, what are you doing in the toilet?"

I finished up, washed my hands, and opened the door.  Standing there like a guard in the Royal Toilet Police, she continued her questioning.

"Grandpa, what were you doing in the toilet?"


"Grandpa, you don't have to close the door if you are just peeing."

According to her mother, Riley has a lot of rules for the bathroom.  Who knew?

Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I have never seen my grandfather pee.

My mother not only didn't tell me to shut the door when peeing, but she also didn't tell me to use toilet paper. Ewww! Only when I realized everyone else used TP did I start. But I still often leave the door open when it's just family and Jake around. You go, Riley!
