moments no one sees
he’s hunkered down on the toilet, making intense eye contact with me as he works out a poop. my default is to just start making him laugh, basically so we don’t have maintain weird pooping eye contact. so it’s the usual, me making fart noises with my mouth, him laughing, him farting long and loud, me laughing and giving him a reaction that makes him laugh, but this time since i’m sitting on the ground, I start rolling backwards and forwards on my back, and we laugh together. the private moments and day-to-day memories like this, shared by an almost three year old boy, and his mom.
