Warning: many excrement related and potty-training relevant discussion below. This is the unfortunate
byproduct of finally potty-training the child - so much attention has been paid to her potty trips that she now has, well,
an obsession with crap.
Me: "Katherine, you better make a potty try before we
get in the car."
Katherine: "It's OK Mommy - My poo is staying safe in my butt. It doesn't
need to come out."
3 minutes after strapping her into her car seat:
Katherine: "My poo
is ready to leave my butt now."
Katherine: "Why doesn't the dog use the potty? Ewwww he's
poo-ing in the yard! Let's get some toilet paper and show him how to flush it down the potty!"
"Poo is the Daddy and Pee is the Mommy" (wha?)
Nearly every time she goes potty, one of the following
(sometimes more than one):
"I had a lot of pee! Lots and lots"
"My poo was LOUD this time"
"My poo took a loooooooong time"
"I peed AND I poo'd!"
"My poo is (brown, dark, curly,
smelly, funny looking, etc etc etc"
And of course, since I am a mother and therefore am entitled to absolutely
no privacy whatsoever:
Katherine (pounding on the door of the bathroom): "Mommy! Are you in there? Are
you making a poo? Let me in I want to see what kind!!! Mommmmmeeeee!"
