re-post: poop

It’s almost the end of having a three-year-old around here. Although its not always easy, having a kid who’s three does come with some pretty funny moments….



We are entering a new time in life which I assume will continue for a while, the Time of the Potty Language. Don’t worry, it’s just the age: people always tell me “Girls! They’re so much different!” But really, its the age. Girls are just the same as boys, just with skorts. We have our fair share of dirt, and wrestling, and angry incidents, and now potty language. Since I’ve heard my share lately of “knock knock?” “Who’s there?” “pee pee!” lately, I figured ip should lay down the law.

“Kids, we don’t use potty language unless we’re in the bathroom. That’s the rules.”

The other day, I was making my bed when I heard Lilly, newly three, walk into the bathroom, muttering. I listened closer as I threw on the sheets and blankets, and heard her saying “poop…poop…poop.” I figured I knew what was happening, so I finished the bed and went into the bathroom, expecting her to be sitting on the potty.

Instead, she was standing on the bathroom floor, draped across the closed toilet seat. She was still saying “poop, poop, poop” in a small but determined voice, so I said, “Lilly, do you have to go potty?” “Nope,” she said.

“Then what a you doing?”

“I just wanted to use potty language.” Well, how can I argue with that? It was the potty, after all.
