I have a great family living next door with 2 young children. The little boy is 5. He is a frequent visitor and with my having been gone for 3 months between hospital and rehab he had a lot of questions why I wasn't home. His mother explained to him I had a bad belly ache and now can poo standing up. Yesterday he decided this was cool and wanted to do the same. Sad part is he had a bout of diarrhea for 2 days did to a medication change. Mom was not happy about the clean up, son said this is not good. They came over to share with me, by now we are all laughing. With moms permission I sat down and showed him the bag and explained what I eat goes in here, I open the bag and can stand to drain it.
Now he wants to take me for show and tell when school starts. This won't happen! But its amazing how accepting children are, wish everyone was.
