Fun on a Couch

I walked into the living to the serene scene of Grace laying on the couch looking at the birds out the window. She smiled at me as I approached her. I touched her head gently, said hello and asked how she was doing. She brightened up, looked at me, smiled and said proudly, "I'm having a poop."

It's hard to know what to say. I don't think Emily Post covers this in her guide to manners. Here are some ideas.
  • How nice?
  • Do you want some privacy?
  • Ever thought of using the toilet?
  • Doesn't smell too bad.....yet.
  • Thanks for keeping me informed.
Witnessing this, Mandy wondered out loud if it was possible to even do that comfortably while laying on your side. I'd have to agree.

The Outing

I heard a noise and looked out my window. Alicia is AMAZING. She actually got Grace to go outside.
