A Practical Parenting Tip

When you are changing your baby’s diaper, choose carefully the phraseology you use, even in jest, because you just might find yourself in a Walmart restroom one day with a very vocal almost 2 year old saying,

“SHOO-WEE! Somebody POO-POOED! Gross! It STINKY!”

  1. That is too funny! My almost two year old does say pretty loudly… Eeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwww! when I change his poopy diaper.

  2. I am blessed! says:

    My kids all go "peep". I'm not sure how that started. So as we send them off to bed it's "peep, teeth, jammies, bed."

  3. The other delightful side effect is when you get joined in the bathroom by your two year old and he proclaims loudly "Mommy's going pooo pooo!"- Thank you dear. Why yes I am.

  4. Cardamom's Pod says:

    Hahahaha! So true – but, of course, I would NOT know ANYTHING about that…

  5. My kids say "shooo-weee!", too. My dh thinks it's hilarious that they talk so country.

    Um, honey, you married ME, remember?

  7. ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Too funny!

    My daughter when she was 18 months was taught that if you fart you must say excuse me. Well we went to WalMart and in the checkout line I suddenly smelled something gross and looked down at my daughter who grinned up at me and said VERY LOUDLY, "I FOOTED!" I was too embarassed to remind her to excuse herself lest I draw more attention to us.

  8. Love it! Little One likes to inform the world when we are in a public restroom and she hears what's going on in the other stalls, she's like a bathroom announcer, it's just lovely.

  9. Hahaha! Yep!

  10. I loved this post! Please allow me to apologize now for the distasteful comment in my comment, but I once had a similar situation.

    When my older son was about 3 years old, I had taken him shopping and he had to GO. So I took him into the restroom (which was quite crowded) where he did his business, hopped off the toilet, looked into the bowl and declared QUITE LOUDLY, "Wow, Mommy! I dropped a BOMB in there!"

    The restroom went completely quiet & I heard one woman mutter something about the poor upbringing of children these days. I was horrified, and ended up lamely telling him he'd been listening to closely to his Daddy lately (since it was my ever so classy husband who taught him to say that).

    Ultimately, we stood inside the stall until I was certain that everyone who had heard his commentary had left. Then we slinked out.

  11. hilarious!

    My 4-y-o and I have some, um, interesting conversations in rest stop bathrooms. Such as:
    Child: “That was a loud noise, mummy”
    me: “Mmm” (non-committal)
    Child: “Mummy what was that loud noise?”
    Me: “I’m not sure, darling” (it was the lady in the next cubicle farting loud enough to start an earthquake in China, but I am *so* not going there! We have to leave this place without actually dying of embarrassment, right?)
