Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

The Pee-Pee Hole

The other morning, Emily came into our room, fully dressed up as a princess. Nathan had helped her get all done, down to the bloomers and tights.  She was quite the sight, as you may imagine.

As she was showing off all her layers, there was one layer that was a little off – Nathan had put her in a pair of his underwear. I asked why, but they never could quite give me a straight answer. Not wanting this to become a regular habit, I told them that boys only wore boy undies, and girls only wore girl undies. They blankly stared back at me looking for more clarification. Without thinking, I told them about the pee-pee hole for boys.

Oh how I’ve come to regret that quick decision. Nathan immediately had to try out this newly-discovered element of his underwear. To his utter delight, it worked. He really could pee out of the hole. A whole new world was opened up to him.

In our household, restrooms are for resting. I don’t want to clean up after a messy four-year-old, so I never taught him about the standing option for going to the bathroom.  Neither of my brothers learned about it until the first day of kindergarten, and I fully intended to follow suit.  Oops.

Over the next few days, Nathan kept trying out this feature of his underwear at any given opportunity.  Sometimes I think he drank so much just so that he could go to the bathroom as often as possible.  There were the inevitable messes I had been trying to avoid.  It was not fun.

Thankfully, he’s slowly forgetting about the pee-pee hole and is reverting back to the seated option. The novelty is wearing off.  Our bathroom seat and floors are grateful, as am I.  Now I’m bracing for the next cool new discovery.  Hopefully it’s not a messy one. And hopefully everyone can continue to wear the correct underwear.

What fun and exciting things have your little ones discovered lately?
