Potty Mouth



If there's one thing I'm loving about being this kids mother, it's the poo talk. Just about anything can be turned into a poo topic.

Because it's so wonderful and I never want to forget the time when poo discussions were completely comfortable and common place, I thought i'd start writing a list and add to it as new poo topics arise.

Would you like some sultanas Zephie, 'no, they're POO-tanas. They're brown like poo.

What would you like on your toast Zeph? Vegiemite or jam? No, POO. Poo on toast thanks mum.

Mum, i did a pop off. It smells like POO

I'm gonna eat this food and it's going to go through my tummy and come out my 'botton' as POO and it's going to be POO.



The inner genius of my 3 year olds mind contains so much poo thought, and i'm glad it does.



In other news, I'm still working hard on getting this story written- my words aren't flowing and it's taking so long to get my overly emotional thoughts on paper. It's coming though- maybe next week.

  1. We have undie talk here. "Hannah wants to eat her undies for breakfast". "Finn, you're an undie-head". (?) So, one morning I served them up undies on toast for breakfast. Had them stumped for a while. It's fun to play along every now and again!

  3. Oh that never ends. When asked what I want for dinner, I often answer 'poo on a plate please'. A bit of wit and alliteration ;)

  4. Haha! We're right there with you at the moment too. We had 'poo poo pizza' the other day. Which was nice. And then some crackers I'd offered were 'stinky. They stink like poo poo'. Oh the hilarity! x

  7. I'm starting to wonder if we're promoting the poo talk a little too much around here? (Can there be such a thing?) I'm living with the fear that olive will yell 'you eat poo AHAHAHA' at the entirely wrong person. Like, an old lady on the street. Or my Great Aunty Maureen. It's so fun though. Kellie xx

    poo on your face !!!!!!!!!!

  11. My boyfriend says pretty much the same stuff as Zeph - but he's 39! I guess they don't grow out of it huh?

  12. God give me strength to endure the poo talk. It started in earnest when Aila began kindy this year and has not eased up since. A friend in the know (with older kids) tells me it continues in full force for three years. By then i guess it'll be elliot's turn. . .

  13. Oh excellent. Thanks for sharing. I was starting to think my daughter was a little bit - I don't like to say it -simple. We have long, long days - full of poo talk. A lovely Sunday drive - only poo talk from the back seat.

  14. Oh I am SO glad to hear that the 'poo' talk isn't just reserved for our grotty little house, haha! This made me smile Em. And Angus still calls it his "boppom", one of the few words he still doesn't say properly... and hearing him say it, I kinda don't mind if it sticks around for a bit longer xoxo
