What is it with kids and their fascinations with poop? One of the main topics of discussion between ourselves and CJ is what poops and what doesn’t, also how big or little their poops are. He truly doesn’t believe that everything poops and gets into full fledged mini arguments (my stubborn child) not believing us when we say everything poops. If he starts to believe it, he then asks how big is their poops and uses his arms and hands to show measurements. I just can’t get over how often this topic of discussion seems to be coming up lately. On vacation, it probably came into play once a day – no exaggeration!
Our conversation went something like… CJ – “Mom you know elephants poop and giraffes.” Me – “Yes they do.” CJ – “But sharks don’t poop and flies don’t poop.” Me – “CJ sharks poop and flies poop, flies even eat poop.” CJ – “No they don’t. How come you can’t see it. Where does it go? Are their poops this big (with hands spread wide apart) like elephants?” Me – “No CJ not that big. Flies poop tiny and your eyes can’t see it without a microscope. Sharks poop in the water they live in.” CJ – “Oh. Calvin, Daddy, and you poop. The dogs poop.” …. and on and on. It’s a revolving door for this conversation.
Has any other moms experienced this? Is this a boy thing or a four year old thing? Honestly I can’t help but laugh about it. Poop?!?!
