Bedtime Stories

I asked Little Man to tell me a bedtime story.

I brought a mean black haired bunny inside the house
He jumped on the table and then pooped in my helicopter
He then pooped on your leg and jumped on your head
We had to cut him out of your hair like bubble gum
Then we put him in the train bank

Much like trying to interpret a dream, I am a little scared to interpret this story. After dinner I mentioned to Little Man that there was a bunny in the backyard. Little Man's favorite color is black, mainly because anything that is chocolate is black and he loves chocolate as much as I do. Little Man loves to talk about poop; we actually created a bedtime game called "poop". He was also playing with his helicopter right before bed. Little Man likes to play with and brush my hair. He also likes to chew gum but knows not to swallow it. Little Man has a little silver train bank on his night stand; when I asked him what we do with the bunny once he is out of my hair he looked around and said "hmmm, put him in the train bank".
Based on my interpretation, Little Man is just using his imagination. Right?

I know, now you want to know how to play the poop game. Rather than make things seem taboo in our house; we tend to play them off. Why make a big deal out of something when you know they will go on and on and on and on. As I mentioned before Little Man went through a phase where he liked to say the word poop. Brother has poop! Pooping pants! Poop in the pants! I have to poop! Poopy pie! On and on and on.

One night during the bedtime routine Little Man was getting a little wound up and said something about turkey poop with cheese on it. This was so long ago I can not interpret why he put this together. So began the poop game. Turkey poop with cheese. Banana covered monkey poop. Ice cream covered green beans. See, I try to steer the weirdness a little. It is really just one of our silly bedtime games. I might share others with you all if I haven't scared you off.

Sweet dreams.

yeah, I tried to steer all poopy talk to the bathroom only....this is starting to backfire on me. Bathtime is an absolute nightmare of nonstop taboo poop talk that is getting totally out of control. But, mommy, you said we could say it in the bathroom.....

There isn't much that's more funny to a little boy than the word poop. Oh, and butt.

Yeah, boys are ALLL about poop. I think there's nothing you can do about it. I just hope mine screams "poop" somewhere really inappropriate so I can laugh hard.

Every time my kids ask what's for dinner Mr. Honeybell announces we're serving up poop on a stick. So basically even if my kids outgrow the bathroom humor, my husband won't. *rolls eyes*

I have 4 kids (5 in a couple of weeks) and they all fixate on poop. Consequently, so do my wife and I.

I always laugh at younger people that don't have kids yet when they wonder why we talk about poop so much. Sounds like you're in the know ;)
