Obvious State

My Account


I was in the middle of one of those embarrassing moments you can't avoid once you become a parent (this one related to pee), when I looked up and saw the loveliest shade of yellow.

I alternated my glance between my son's dancing, crossed legs and the yummy yellow, and ultimately decided that: yes, it was quite okay to pee into a drain hidden between two trash cans so I could have my photo and dry pants too.

I thought about the connection between the color of the photos and the pee. :)

Too funny.

My husband was cracking up. I wish I had the whole thing recorded!

So funny that these photos are a lovely (non-urine) shade of yellow!

Love that old sign and that color of yellow is beautiful. Funny about the embarrassing moments as a parent… they happen quite often, don’t they? :)

I adore those yellow images. I think it is absolutely worth it to pee into a drain for this!
Have a lovely weekend!
