Poo Pieces - 05/09/14

    For any mom reading this, the title won't even make you flinch.  Others, well.... you may need to click out.   This blog is an  ode to all my fellow moms.
    First off, let me just say I looooooove being a mom.  I was so busy working on my career and so was he that my husband and I started our family late.  So, I'm incredibly blessed to have 2 healthy children, but I've just got to tell you... if we had started earlier...  I would have given the Duggars a run for their money.   I love this!
    The things my kids say, the things they do, the way they're learning to relate to the world around them is the most intriguing thing this curious journalist has ever and will ever be a part of. 
     So, why Poo Pieces as a title?  Because that's what I had to clean up today.  My dear husband left early before the rest of us were up.  The toilet in our master bathroom apparently was showing signs of malfunctioning, so since he was running late, he simply closed the lid and stacked 10 rolls of toilet paper on top of it. 
     Somehow, we were supposed to all figure out that that meant the commode was out of order.  When my son woke up, he was the first to run down to our room and use OUR toilet for some reason.  In one fell swoop he throws off the toilet paper rolls and hops on board for his morning ritual.  Then, he flushes.
     For the next 45 minutes or so.... you know it... I'm cleaning up poo pieces. 
     Happy Mothers Day to all the good and loyal moms out there who've done that and more, who answer the call of motherly duty every day whether it's to wipe a tear, give a hug, correct behavior or sneak some neck sugar from your babies....  Your work is leaving a legacy.... and I'll just end by saying thank goodness for Comet, Lysol Wipes, Bleach and Soft Scrub.  I kept them all in business today.

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
