Real Mom Conversation

To my 2 year old: What do you want to do while Mommy washes the dishes? Do you want to dry the dishes or play Fischer Price?

Toddler: "Butt!"

Mommy: "That's a potty talk. And did you mean 'bum'?"

Toddler, thoughtful pause, then even louder: "NAK*D butt!"

Nice.

Toni said...

BUTT!! NAK*D BUTT!




Thought you might want to hear it in stereo!

Is naked a dirty word at your house?

Don't you love it when they say or do something so out there that you just want to crack up laughing but you sort of have to feign disapproval?

Shari -- it WAS hard not to laugh!

Toni -- Thanks Toni. You are so considerate. And no, it is not a dirty word at our house. I was just afraid that if I wrote it out completely that I might have a bunch of icky perverts googling the word nak*d and being led to my blog. Ew.

CW -- Yes! It's tough to be the adult. Plus, his melt-my-heart grin was so big when he said it too! So fun.

LOL on the googling thing. My older three were taught that we don't say butt, we say bum. Now when my 3 year old says butt, they say "He said the B word!"

We say booty in the Infidel house. As in "Yar, thar be a bounty of scurvy knave booty o'er there and it's no treasure either." That's when I have to remind my son yet again to frickin pull up his pants before I make good on my threat to buy him some suspenders.

cj -- can I call you cj? Your boys sound fun.

EWL -- I love your pirate talk! I'm thinking that maybe a lusty "Arrgh!" now and then could really get my kids moving.

Oh it begins, the potty joke struggle! As a mom tries to combat the forces of funny v. appropriate. Your child is obviously a prodigy starting this a little young.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'll have to peruse yours too. YAY new blog to read!

That's classic. Yesterday I found my two-year-old in the tree house. Naked. He said he had ouchee ouchee poo. I guess removing the diaper with the poo in it was his solution. So, needless to say, I had to rescue him from the treehouse, rescue the treehouse from the poop and clean up what was left.

Sketchy, bon, NCS -- Thanks for visiting. Yes, potty humor never gets old (for two year olds).

Maralise -- sorry about the treehouse! Kids and diapers are so fun.

Have to pass this along (NCS, you'll like this). My wife works as an aide in a special ed class--third and fourth graders--and has many fun stories to tell. This is my favorite: The kids were all at their desks working on personal projects. The teacher was over in her little enclave working on a personal project. Same with my wife. A relative calm had settled over the room when suddenly one of the boys yelled out, "Chicken!" No one reacted right away, but the teacher mumbled, "Sometimes I feel like I'm in a haunted house." Well, my wife thought that was so funny she just about fell out of her chair with raucous laughter. The young boy thought she was laughing at him and apparently figured that if "chicken" was funny then, "Chicken butt!" would be even funnier. He let it fly. I commented to my wife later that the teacher was right in a way. If you took the children out of the room but left the behaviors there, you'd think the room was full of poltergeists. Which led us to the sudden realization that poltergeists are nothing more than special ed demons.

Thanks for stopping by, Scott. Your story is hysterical. Thanks for sharing it.
