If you were a fly on a wall in our house, here are some things you might have heard this week:

Matty brought a letter home from school that said that the elementary kids had to make up their snow days.
Beth: Well, well, well. Looks like you guys will have to stay a few minutes later until school gets out.
Matt: What the hell!?

One show that Kevin and I really enjoy is Gene Simmons Family Jewels on A&E. We were watching the marathon when we hear this sweet little voice.
Rachel: Mom, what’s a Playboy Mansion?

Matty’s class had a little presentation at the school board meeting tonight. Kevin was on the phone with Lauren, telling her what was going on. Our wonderful, blonde daughter is so naive.
Kevin: I’m leaving here in a minute to take Matt up the street for some meeting he has to be at tonight.
Kevin: I’m not sure exactly. The teacher just wanted him there at 5:45.
Lauren: He’s not going so people can make fun of him, is he?

Matty has been having some issues with urinating this week. I was discussing it with Kevin. Austin felt compelled to weigh in his thoughts.
Austin: Can’t they just cut his penis off?
Beth: Ow! He uses that thing.
Austin: Well, it’s not like he can have kids or anything.
Beth: He might. Mentally handicapped people get married and stuff too.
Austin: That’s just awkward.

Speaking of Matty and his pee problems. Here is an email between me and his aide today.
Beth: When I first saw this email I thought maybe you were having issues with Matty peeing himself. We had him on the toilet for 45 minutes and he wouldn’t go pee. He did the same thing twice last night. Kevin finally got him off the potty so he could shower Matt and said that his jammy shirt was wet but not wet enough for all the pee that he should be carrying. So hopefully you guys have no accidents today and he cooperates for you guys
Aide: we will get along fine that is what I am understanding best today.
Aide: Matt did finally go, the janitor had to come mop the bathroom afterwards, but he went YEAH!!!!!!!
Beth: are you serious?!?! That is hilarious. When he was a baby the urologist said he had a bladder the size of a grown mans…guess they weren’t kidding. Thanks for letting me know that he finally peed
Aide: Yea, it was pretty funny. The amazing thing was he didn’t ever have to change his clothes, I kept checking them out because just from the looks of the restroom I was sure I needed to, but no.
Have a great Friday everyone
