Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Monday, September 7

Never heard that question before.

Here are some answers (and thoughts) I've given to the many "why" and "but-what-if" questions I've heard lately from Monsoon. It's an effort to not just say 'I don't know.'

"Those are your testicles," followed by, "No, jellyfish have tentacles." Sorry I spewed snot on you. If you don't like it, stop making me laugh.

"Underwear are for you bottom. If you put them around your neck, they will likely get stuck. Again." Again!?

"No, my utters do not have super powers." You don't need to know about their super powers just yet.

"If everyone had a penis, there would be no girls." Stop asking what I have.

"Clifford is pretend. Sprinkles will never talk." What do you mean you don't want her, then?

"Well then the car would smell really bad, wouldn't it?" Are all kids this obsessed with poop?

Michelle said...

Ahhh, gotta love what the kids make you do, no? Some of those sound a little familiar though, I hate to admit. And YES they're all that obsessed by poop.

And toots and burps in my household at the moment. Every one is announced and congratulated. *sigh*

Jenny-Jenny said...

Yes, all kids are obsessed with poop. My 14 year old boy still finds it hilarious to say European.

Julia said...

Uhhhh? You win. Those are off the charts! Congratulations. :)

Sassy Britches said...

Come on, now! I'm 32, and I'M still obsessed with poop. :)

But I'm still holding out for a verbal Sprinkles!

Holly said...

So glad SITS featured you. I'think I will doing laundry more now that I found you. You know why? 'cause I just peed my pants laughing so hard.



*Not really* But it could happened with you around...:))

Crystalin Dunn said...

Holy crap! Ok, stop, STOP! It's waaaaaaayy to early for me to have a stomachache from laughing so hard! I think you should let Monsoon do some guest posts. I know I for one am interested in what he has to say!

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

Nope, never heard any of those questions before but yes, I think kids are obsessed with poop. Bet they would like my zoo post about it: http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2009/11/things-we-learned-at-cleveland-zoo.html

Elizabeth a.k.a. Type A Mommy said...

Hilarious! As much as I'm enjoying my 20 month old beginning to talk in sentences, these are sentences I'm so not looking forward to!!!!

"Are all kids this obsessed with poop?"

Yes. Freud calls this the anal retentive stage.

His obsession with "what you have" is the Oedipal stage. I assume your son is 4 or 5? Somewhere close? Maybe 3. But definitely under 5.

singedwingangel said...

Hmmm sounds much like conversations with my now 9 year old.. he is horrible with teh constant wyy and what if's I finally toldhim one day "what if your mouth was made of Velcro then what??
His response , " then I would make that weird velcro opening sound when I asked you questions" yeah I can't win you can sit over here with me in the corner and i will share my fruit scented markers with you... just don't eat the grape I don't care how real it smells..

Christina said...

Hahaha... oh wow. I hope you make a note to remind him about all these questions in a few years. ;-)

Eva Gallant said...

Gotta' love that curious little mind! lol

Happy SITS day!

Christine said...

LOL @ your Utters powers! It took me a second...but LMAO!

Chaotic Kristy said...

I love the questions kids ask. It can be so cute. my daughter has not reached that age yet, but I know I need to practice because it's coming soon.

The only question I had to answer was what's that when daddy stepped out of the shower and she happen to open the door at the same time.

We said "That's what daddy goes potty with" and that was the end of it for now.

Simply Mommy said...

Too funny!! I have 3 boys, 2 of which can talk. I have many of those arkward questions/statements that Im not sure how to answer. How about this one: As I am getting out of the shower, my son says mommy you have a small penis. Well if you dont have a penis then what do you have? How the heck do you answer to that. :)

Kim @ Cheap Chic Home said...

You are so smart to chronicle these questions. One says so many sentences with children that would be unimaginable with adults!

Michelle said...

SUCH a boy. I cant wait to explain about testicles.

As it is my 3 year old thinks it's really funny for her to tell us that her brother has a vagina.

2busy said...

This is funny! Little kids can sure make me laugh.

Rook No. 17 said...

Cathy said...

Yes for my 4 yr old son, the craziest thing I've said is "No, you can not drive a car up and down your penis."

Kristin @ Meanbean said...

This is an adorable post! I love the way kids think!

PaperbackWriter said...

Yes all kids are obsessed with poop, and sadly with boys it only gets worse as they get older.

Happy SITS day!

Love to know that I'm not the only one sitting in the weird corner most of the time. I'm really going to have to post about my boy and some of his doings sometime. Thanks for the inspiration!

Alex Fitzpatrick aka Ma What's 4 Dinner said...

Ha, my 3 year old insists everyday that he doesn't have to wash his hands after going potty because his penis does all the work...thank goodness for little kids!

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

LOL! My utters have super powers. They play dead on my belly. It's a prettu awesome trick....

African American Mom said...

Don't you just love the things kids say?

African American Mom said...

Don't you just love the things kids say?

Angelia Sims said...

Yes all children are obsessed with poop. THEN you get old and YOU get obsessed with poop. It's never ending - poop!

Laura said...

Kids really do ask the strangest questions. And yes, I think all little kids (and some big ones) are obsessed with poop.

Sarah Nicole said...

Thank you for giving me a good laugh today. I remember when my younger sister would say silly things. Congrats on being featured on SITS. I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Micha said...

My nephew thinks underwear are for his head. And so does his younger sister. Thing is she's only one so it is his underwear on her head. Kids that age are funny and embarrassing all at the same time.

When did I become my Mom said...

Lol, I was totally an underwear-on-the-head kid! Thankfully none of my kids are... yet...

Happy SITS FB day!

Megan said...

LOL So hilarious!! I love to hear the things that kids {and moms ;0) }come up with!!

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

Ha ha! Thanks for the good laugh. Kids seriously are hilarious. Thanks for sharing. Hope you've enjoyed your day as FB @ SITS.

Kara@ Creations by Kara said...

Congrats on being Saucy today. You are one funny lady. Thanks for the laughs!

Chelle said...

Love them!

Isabella associates bathrooms with poop. Washing your hands? You gotta be going poopy! Brushing your teeth? Just a cover up for poop :)

I love kids. Seriously, they are the funniest little people ever.

Caroline said...

Funny!!! Hvae a great weekend!

Angelica Bays, TygrLilies.com said...
