That is so dang funny when the kids don't know. Just for a sec. Although mine are 15 and 13 now, and they know more than I do. Now the laughing is reversed. Ah, but we still have Uranus (which, btw, was pronounced urine-iss at Immaculate Conception, where I learned the planets).

She was doing a project about the planets and asked me why all the boys laugh when Mrs. Leary mentions Uranus. I told her (and unfortunately Allie) what the joke was. They got it also. Too well. For the rest of the semester, Allie would ask Megan if she did her science homework..."Did you look up Uranus??" lol, she didn't laugh that hard again till she realized the word 'ball' had multiple meaning.
Why did I think I'd escape the bathroom humor having all girls?


Awesome. Glad you don't have to totally grow up to have kids.
