Let’s talk about poop.
You don’t want to talk about it?
That’s ALL I seem to talk about these days. Not one day goes by without mention of poop. So you can leave now, or just hear me out.
I think about poop a lot, as I’m working on potty training the 2 year old. Sometimes we have conversations that go like this:
Jenna: Mommy, I pooped! It’s so cute!!
Me: No, Jenna. It’s not cute when it’s in your pants. It’s only cute when it’s on the potty.
Jenna: Blank stare.
Followed by another day:
Jenna (on the potty): I pooped!! It’s not cute. (sad face)
Me: No Jenna… it’s soooo cute!!! Poop is adorable on the potty, we love poop on the potty!
We flush the poop. Wave bye-bye. She yells down the toilet “Have fun with your friends!!”. Because in our world, poop and pee can’t wait to get out and into the potty, where they can be flushed to catch up with their family and friends having a big poopy party.
I was organizing books today, and noticed our large selection of potty training books. One of their favorites??
Where’s the poop indeed.
A cute take on showing little ones that EVERYONE poops. Even wild animals like elephants, kangaroos, tigers and monkeys.
One of Jenna’s favorites? Baby penguin.
Of course. It has to be tied in to humans at the end, or there is a real chance we could be teaching our kids to just go poop behind whatever they want. Cover it up, and let us find it. Fun!!
Anyway…. that’s what we do around here. Pretty much every day. In case you were wondering.
