I don't know about you, but all of my kids have gone through the phase where saying "poop" is really cool. I remember when Mia and her cousin Addie would use the word all the time. They would stick it at the end of a word and it would be the funniest thing ever.

Mia: What's your name?
Addie: Addie. . .poop.
(Tons of giggles and laughter)

Xander says the word "poop" or "poopy" all of the time. He tells me I'm "poopy". He'll come up to me and take a big whiff by me and declare "You're poopy". Frankly, I am tired of the word at the dinner table and of hearing it all day.

Mia's been excited that the "poopy" days are here again and has started saying it again. I told Mia the other day to stop saying the word “poop” and that the new word was “hamburger”. Mia told me today that Dylan at school said “poop” and she told a girlfriend that the new word was “hamburger” and that her mom was tired of the words “poop” and “pee”.

So everyone out there, the new word is "hamburger".

"Hi Zoey, right now you look kind of like an alien, but I'm sure you are adorable. Can't wait to meet you....poop."

Ben Porter said...

Val, did you want me to pick up some hamburger on my way home?

Sarah said...

Amen, sista!

Valerie said...

Andy, if "hamburger" wasn't the funniest thing I've heard, what you said would be.

And Ben. . .yes I want you to pick up some hamburger. . .with your bare hands.

We've just begun the poop phase. Whenever Travis goes into the bathroom Calvin says "Dada poh" very softly. I told him Daddy poops and Mommy pees.
