Montezuma's Revenge

I am so lucky to be Henry's Mum.
Tonight I have been ordered to sit outside the bathroom door while he reads the entire script from the play he is in (in May) from upon his "throne." He is playing all the characters and singing all the songs while he's pooping.

This is a kid who likes to practice behind closed bathroom doors.
He used to make me sit outside the door while he sang/practiced his numbers in Spanish when he was in Kindergarten and for lots of other things since. Something about pooping and singing behind a door must make him feel safe/brave. It's like singing in the shower or the car when you are alone. You know you do it. Anyway, I have been sitting here for 15 minutes, typing this on my phone for posting later (now). We are on scene 2. There are 7 scenes and 7 songs to this play and he is insisting on doing everyone's lines and singing all the songs.

Who else, but another Mom could appreciate how happy I am that I am sitting on a little step stool outside the bathroom door for ages while my little one poops and practices his lines.

LIFE IS SO GOOD! It really is. (Thankfully he came out of the bathroom to finish!)
What weird things have you done to make your kid happy?

@ Cheri: I LOVE it!

Ummm... I still have to wipe their bottoms, so I'm not too thrilled about waiting outside the bathroom door.

I make two completely different lunches for their school lunch boxes. That's love.

I'm a little confused as to what he came out of the bathroom to finish--I'm hoping it wasn't the pooping!
