Set Phasers to "Regular"

I would never have guessed that parenting would involve so much serious discussion about, fretting about, and interest in poop. I dreamed about Violet pooping last night, a sign of just how far my concern for her bowel movements has burrowed into my psyche. My phone conversations with my wife used to include at least one, "I love you." Now, "Did she poop yet today?" is the guaranteed phrase.

  1. Bill, from a guy's point of view I believe the words have changed but you are still saying " I love you ".

  2. I like that idea, but I never thought any form of "I love you" would contain a reference to feces.
