This post has poop-filled content that may be offensive to some readers…although no one that I can think of…except maybe my husband…and Owen in a few years…But whatever.

This morning Owen came running into the kitchen:
“hafta go poops Mommy!”
Me: “Ok, Buddy, let’s go.”
Owen (after pooping a few little marble poops): “Oh, wittle baby poops, want dem Mommy.”
Me: “No, Owen, it’s poop, it’s gross, we don’t want them even if they are little.”
Owen: “Oh…flush dem Mommy?”
Me: “Yes, flush it Bud.”
Owen: “Poor poops.”
About 5 minutes later…
Owen: “Mommy, hafta go poops ‘gin! Mommy and Daddy poops coming!”
Me: “Ok, let’s go.”
Owen (grunting): “Daddy poops here!”
As he jumps off the potty and looks in and sees a “big” poop and some marbles:
“Oh, Baby poops riding on Daddy poops shoulders!”
