When raising a little boy...

...one must be prepared for the turn that every conversation will eventually take: to poop. And all it's associated bodily functions.

Example the first:

Noah: Knock knock!
Me: Who's there?
Noah: POOOOOOOP!!!  (falls on the floor laughing)
Me: ...

Example the second:
(While watching Little Einsteins and becoming musical geniuses)

Noah: Mommy! The French Horn sounds like my toots!!! (again, falls on the floor laughing)
Me: ...

Example the third:
(Lesson courtesy of his father)

Noah: If I get eaten by a crocodile, then I become crocodile poop!
Me: Well, I suppose so. I hope you don't get eaten by a crocodile though!
Noah: I want to be crocodile POOP! (falls on the floor laughing, of course)
Me: Of course you do.
Noah: If I get eaten by a robot, then I become robot poop! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Me: Go discuss this with your father.

Example the fourth:

Noah: Mommy, you have beautiful eyes...and you smell like my toots!
Me: Thank you?

It's rare a day goes by where one of these conversations doesn't take place in our house. If you have a little boy-type baby, consider yourself warned.

I'm so glad it's not just my son. I mean, I knew that all little boys thought poop was funny. I just didn't realize it was an all-day everyday thing. We also get a lot of "Mommy I'm just joking" farting and blaming all actual stuff on his little sister. Oh boys are so fun :)

Little boys are RIDICULOUS.

It's not just boys. The other day my daughter tooted and busted out laughing, saying "mommy, my bottom made a NOISE!"

And you've pretty much summed up my house ....

Being that I'm married to Sweets and all, I'm pretty sure I've gotten used to poop and toot conversations. =) But, it's a very good heads-up to know that Gavin will likely follow in his shoes. hahaha.

This cracked me up because the other day Finn informed me that he likes the smell of toots, but doesn't like the smell of poop.

WHAT??!?!

Boys.

Oh my gosh... this is hilarious!! "Poop" or "FLUTTER!" (Maddie's word for toots) has become a frequent punchline in our house as well.
