Yet another reason I love my wife.

In a relationship, you need moments that just make you laugh uncontrollably.   Some times in a relationship, you get the chance to laugh at each other.  I know I do things to make Andrea laugh and sometimes she returns the favor.  A lot of the time it is accidental that you make your spouse laugh with what you say, what you do, or whatever.  This was one of those times.

So we were getting ready for bed last night, talking about life, our relationship (always good to keep that talk going), and just stuff parents want to talk about when their kids are in bed….grown up stuff.  We have a routine of getting in bed and watching the Jay Leno Show (tivo’d, of course…who has time for commercials) before we go to sleep.  Anyway, Sandra Bullock was on last night and she was talking about her two dogs, one of which has just 3 legs and one that has 2 legs.  So Jay Leno asked her how the dog goes to the bathroom.  I believe the question was “so what leg does the dog raise?  I mean is it like a flamingo thing?”  Sandra Bullock was like “Jay she is a girl…the squat.”  This is where it got really funny to me!

Andrea turns to me and says (now understand she had spent much of the day beginning the process of potty training with my son, Brayden), “Isn’t it amazing that no one has to teach a boy dog to lift their leg, or a girl dog to squat?  I mean, God just put that in their DNA to know to do that.  You don’t have to train a dog to do that, they just know. YOu have to teach humans how to use the bathroom, but dogs just know that boy dogs raise their leg and girl dogs squat.  I find that fascinating!”

I may have cried myself to sleep, I don’t remember.  All I know is I laughed at the pure honesty of the moment…And knew it would wind up on my blog!
