Poop is the main topic of discussion these days…

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?!?!

I'm an art teacher aka working mom that has two wonderful boys, ages 4 and 9 months. My husband is a police officer who works nights; so I find that my style of parenting isn't always what others approve of, but it works for us! I am very crafty so I am always finding new projects to try and think that I am "green" or at least try to be. My philosophy is live laughing and loving. This blog is intended as an adventure so we'll see how it goes...
