Heaven help me

Conversation today in a public restroom stall somewhere in Mesquite (words in italics are being whispered; words in all CAPS are being shouted and echoed throughout the bathroom):

Me: Okay Len, sit on the potty.

[Next to us, another stall door shuts]

Lennon: What was that noise???
Me: Just a door shutting.
Lennon: Who is it?
Me: I don't know, come on Len, we need to go.
Lennon: I'M NOT DONE! I NEED TO POO FIRST!
Me: Okay, okay.
Lennon: Who's in here?
Me: Just someone else.
Lennon: Are they peeing or pooing?
Me: Shhhhhhhhhh, Len come on hurry.
Lennon: MOM! ARE THEY PEEING OR POOING?!
Me: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Lennon: MAMA DON'T TELL ME TO SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Me: Okay, come on Lennon hurry up let's go.
Lennon: DON'T! TELL! ME! TO! HURRY! I HAVE TO POO FIRST!

See post title.

P.S. Leah -- this picture was taken a couple months ago in a Home Depot parking lot - too lazy to take him inside as well. Glad I'm not alone.

So, were they peeing or pooing? I'm dying to know.

I will never get tired of your stories! You MUST write a book of your Lennon experiences. It will be a best seller!

Okay, Lennon and Drake would be BFFs. And I think Lennon's also my kindred spirit seeing as we came into this world on the same day. Different years though in case you were wondering.

Ahhh, you will have MANY more of those converstations!

That picture is priceless and HAS to be shown to his high school prom date!

BWAHAHAHAH! I thought Camryn saying "HI!" to the guy at the stall next to me while in my backpack at the urinal was embarrassing (I'm trying to teach her to point and laugh). Lennon is the BEST and I think the best part is that all of us know EXACTLY your voice tone, facial expressions, etc. It's priceless and I would totally watch your reality show. Screw Singing Bee-though you'd dominate

Glad I'm not the only one that lets my kids pee in public. If I get any weird looks I say, "I'm really sorry, but he's potty training." That usually keeps them off our backs.

Once in a public bathroom, there was a lady going #2 in the stall next to us and Xavier kept yelling over and over, "WHAT IS THAT SMELL????"

That is awesome. Jaxons favorite thing to do is too pee outside, he always asks if he can do it. Jaxons latest thing he yelled: (while sitting in a completely silent sacrament meeting at my parents ward) I look over and his hands are down his pants during sacrament meeting..
Me: jaxon stop
Jaxon: BUT MOM.....MY WEINER IS STUCK!!!!
Me:shhhhh
Jaxon: (even louder) BUT MOM....MY WEINER IS STUCK! I HAVE TO MAKE IT SMALL!
awesome.
I thought about crawling under the bench and hiding.
