HeroBoy was on the potty today, doing his business. He sent the Duke to me with the message that the mission was accomplished, and he was ready for my assistance. (Um, yes, I still participate in this event, because the alternative is not pretty, trust me.)

Anyway, so I head to the bathroom, and see that he has assumed the position. (Is this funny to anybody but parents of small children?)

Me, laughing: So, I see you’re ready, huh?

HeroBoy: Aye, aye Captain. –pause– I’m reporting for DOODY!!!

Gold star.

**It occurs to me that sometime in the future, he may not appreciate detailed potty accounts published on the world wide web. Hm.
