Potty Talk

With potty training a part of our daily lives these days, there has been a lot of "potty" talk. This may not be a suitable post for those opposed to bodily functions, bodily excretions and things of that nature. With the disclaimer out of the way, I have a couple of quick, cute (at least I think they are cute), funny stories about Abby and her potty time chatter.

The other day, Abby did a #2 in the big potty and as always she got off of the toilet to inspect her work. This particular day she was very proud, as she happily exclaimed, "Mommy, look at my man turd!" (It was indeed very large, for such a small girl).

On the flip side, if they are not quite as impressive in size she will say..."Oh Mommy, look at how cute they are!" I have never heard anyone else refer to their fecal matter in such an endearing way.

And, last but not least, the other day we were in public when nature called to Abby as it so often does. We found the bathroom and she did her duty. Of course, there were some other people in there and she must have been having a bit of a rough time because she was turning red and grunting very loudly. I made sure to say something so those around would realize it was just a little girl making those noises and hopefully they wouldn't be too grossed out! But, I could have kept my mouth shut, because as the poo hit the toilet she would ask me "Mommy, did you hear my poop plop?" This did cause some laughter from the surrounding stalls. When she was done and we went to find Andrew she told him very loudly that she did poopy in the potty! Again, the people around us found this to very humorous, only a toddler likes to announce this to the world.

I know that this is far from over and I am sure I will have more stories down the road, but I just thought I would share. Hope I didn't gross anyone out too badly!!!

This is so funny (that she refers to them as a cute or a manly one)! I was just thinking my 1 1/2 year old started laughing at potty talk way too soon because of my 4 year old's influence. He cracks up at all the potty talk words!
