That's What He Said

After all the poop talk here on my blog, it probably shocks you that my kids have become "potty" mouths.

You might think it natural for Norah -- she is 3, and the very nature of 3 year olds is to be little shits -- but for Caleb, who is still an innocent 20 month old, it might come as a surprise.  Alas, the little dude has discovered the descriptive language to identify the critical emission of bodily functions.

On the practical end, he's begun telling us (sometimes) when he's pooped.  He approaches, tilting his hips and holding out his butt and declares, simply, "Poop!"  It's helpful.  Seriously, it's actually awesome.  It makes the guessing game of "What's that stink?" way easier.

On the not-so-practical end, he's begun identifying farts.  Which, for him, probably is practical.  To us, it's just hilarious. 

The dude has less than 50 words in his lexicon, but last week, he tooted and said matter of factly: "Fart."  I agreed, by all technical terminology, it was a "fart"; however, in terms of the physical traits, it seems that the little poot emitted by a toddler should be labeled something far cuter, something like a "fuzzy bunny."  As in, "Awwwww, Caleb just let a fuzzy bunny loose!"

Anyhoo...if I haven't lost you by now, I'll move forward. 

On Sunday, the kids and I were at the dinner table and Jerry was in the kitchen finishing up the cooking, and Jerry farted -- a classic Jerry move; it was loud and rumbly and everything that's the opposite of a "fuzzy bunny."  Caleb didn't miss a beat, he pointed a finger at the kitchen and yelled: "Fart!"

Yes, I certainly agreed: THAT was a fart.

haha!! I love it! My sister hated the word fart and made her kids say, "pass gas". Needless to say our entire family used the word FART, especially when she was around. See how we are??

Love this! I've been trying to teach my 19-month-old "toot." He's pretty good at identifying "toot" when the occasion arises but he just recently picked up "fart" at daycare. So he uses both. I would try to stop him but when I heard a chorus of "farts" when I dropped him off, I knew it was not a battle to take on.

We use "fluff" for the kids, but for Jon it's most definitely a "fart." I, of course, neither fart nor poop. :)

Awesome!! Now that my kids are old enough, we have farting contests. Just wait for it...

Sounds like my house too, and we don't even have kids. Cheers!
