We have a new Natural History museum in town. The building is lovely. Very modern. We decided to check it out.
The kids loved it. For a Natural History museum, they have a lot of stuff for little kids. Isis loved the big dinosaur bones. Her stories about what they were doing was pretty funny. I like that the big dinosaurs and little ones take naps together.
Halfway through our tour, Orion got pretty stinky. I took him out to the car for a change (an adventure in it's own right). At this point, I realized I didn't have any spare diapers in the car. Mom fail #1. How did this happen?
Oh well. I figured he has been pretty good about wanting to go potty. Might as well give it a go. So, Orion went back into the museum commando. I had a good time watching my toddler walk around pulling his pants up. I figured this is exactly what he will look like in about 12 years.
Everything went swimmingly. We were just starting to worry that it was time to go when we reached the last exhibit. I decided on a whim to take the kids out onto the rooftop terrace. And there, in the great outdoors, Orion let loose a flood. I see it this way: the building has a green roof, so we were just watering it for them. No harm done. Had the kids run around for a minute to stop the dripping and then we went back in and headed home.
I guess he's not quite ready for potty training. Honestly, this wasn't a bad way to find out.
