When you can’t even bribe your 2yo to pee on the potty but know he’s got A+ aim

There are tons of potty training memes out there, but none capture it so perfectly as Brian Gordon at Fowl Language Comics. We've still got two in diapers, for the record.

There's a snowstorm coming our way, looking like it'll hit Thursday morning. I was scheduled to fly out at 5:45am but with the storm's heaviest snow scheduled for between [...]
