One Day at the Park

You might think that going to the park with the kids isn’t that exciting. Usually I’d agree with you, which is why The Moms routinely have park playdates so that we can talk while the kids run around and exhaust themselves. We call this “Tuesdays in a Park” – we’re witty like that.

Yesterday we hit a new park, and had a fabulous turnout – 14 moms were there. Kids ran willy nilly and generally caused chaos. And then Alex, who’s four, had to poop. Fortunately, there was a port-a-potty at this park for such emergencies. Unfortunately, it was on fire.

You read right – the port-a-potty was burning. Alex’s mom called out ‘Call 911!’ and the Mom Posse turned – ‘Huh?’. We had a fire truck complete with sirens – they just hopped out with their tanks to put the thing out, and let us know that a roll of toilet paper had been lit in the corner.

Then the cops showed up and started asking if we saw anything. Unfortunately, because we were having a good time, not one of us saw anyone go in or out of the potty. Luke was unimpressed by the whole activity, and wouldn’t even say hello to the firemen. Dang it.

That was a much needed laugh.
