- As I've discussed here, I work from home. I answer directly to two groups of volunteers: the officers of the collegiate choral group I work for and the officers of that group's alumni association. We have an all-group meeting about once a month, usually around 8 p.m., as that's the time that works best for everyone. They're all men, every last one of them. Take note of that.
- As I discussed here back in August, Graceful has constipation issues. We're still doing what the doctor recommended last summer, but in the past three months, we've only seen marginal improvement. I'm still tracking her output, which means that she announces to us loudly when she has just gone. Loudly. Make note of that.
Graceful apparently forgot the ban on communicating with me while I'm on a work call. As I was participating in the group phone call, I could hear Graceful upstairs. She was stomping around and proclaiming something loudly, but I couldn't hear what it was and figured Pete would handle it.
As it turns out, Pete was up on the top floor helping Elegant with her shower. Graceful, not immediately finding an adult to report whatever it was that she needed to say, opted to come downstairs to where I was, instead of going upstairs to where Pete was.
So as I sat there listening to one of my colleagues talking, Graceful burst into my office and very loudly announced, "MOMMY, I WENT POOP!!!!"
