Family Stories

My husband and I were recalling funny stories about our kids and this one got the whole family doubled over with laughter. He requested that I share it with all of you so that you can get a little giggle as well.

When my oldest was four, it was his job to walk our twelve year old pug/beagle mix. Walking him consisted of going right in front of our house and letting the dog do his business on the patch of grass near the sidewalk. On this particular day, Luke took the dog out as usually then, minutes later, busted through the front door frantic and without our dog. "Buddy! Are you okay? Where's Burton?" My husband asked.
"He's with the neighbor! I need a towel!" he said as he pushed past us toward the dish towel drawer.

Questions abounded but we held our tongues as peaked out the front door. Sure enough, a neighbor we had never met was holding our dog's leash looking just as bewildered as we were.
"Wait, why do you need a towel?" I asked.
"Because! I peed on Burton!"
"You what!?"
"He was peeing and it made me have to pee so I just started to pee and then he was done and he walked right through my pee and now he's soaking wet!" He told us this as if this sequence of events made even a tiny bit of logical sense.

We tried to stifle our laughter as we relieved (no pun intended) the neighbor from dog sitting and introduced ourselves as the parent of the kid who just peed on the dog. You just can't make this stuff up.

Do you have some favorite family stories? I encourage you to take a night around the kitchen table competing for the hardest laugh. There's something about it that connects us and makes us so happy to have each other.
