Beware the Dark Side

Monday, October 08, 2007 posted by Henri

So there I was. Staring at some poo. And everything was in slow motion. There was a boy laughing at the toilet. There was me giving high fives and feeling like Rudy when he got into Notre Dame (Don't you dare make a single comment about the Notre Dame/UCLA game this past weekend, I swear to god I will reach through teh internetz and knuckle sandwich you). And when I was about to look for the camera to document this incredible moment, that's when it happened. Far off in my brain somewhere there was this tiny flash of recognition. I shook my head and started to get the camera and then there it was again, that little flash. And suddenly it all came to me.

It's not normal to photograph poo.

And like Darth Vader suddenly realizing he was a good guy all along, the fog of blogging fatherhood lifted long enough for me to realize that underneath it all, I am still a man of reason.

A man of reason. Within reason of course.

Must be an Asian thing. I was on a business trip when the Peanut laid her first turd in her little tiny potty. The wife immediately took a photo of it and e-mailed it to me.

Thankfully, she discarded her first idea (which was to put the turd in a ziploc, freeze it, and show it to me when I got home.)

my daughter took photos of her OWN poo once when she was about 5. (the digital camera is truly a god send - the kids LOVE to take photos of eachother . . . and sometimes you get the most incredible pictures - like of POO!)
