Seeking Solitude

Over the past several weeks, Moses has developed a peculiar new quirk: whenever he has a bowel movement, he'll hide behind a piece of furniture. It's entertaining to watch because he'll suddenly stop whatever he's doing and move behind a certain living room chair or the dining room table before making a series of grunts and other telltale sounds that clue us in to his intestinal goings-on. I'm not sure if this act is out of a sudden need for privacy or if it's more about limiting distractions so he can properly focus on the task at hand, but for now, it's just one more thing to add to my "how-to-embarrass-my-teenager" toolbox.

Also, I think the spectacle will be invaluable come potty training time. Hooray for predictability.
