The Word Poop

I find it extremely interesting watching my kids grow into real live people with their own little crazy personalities. i am wondrously curious to see what kind of teenagers they become. Most often, I think i look Jada, who is 6 and attached to me at the hip when we are out, but at home, she is the class clown all the way. 

Unfortunately, her favorite word on this planet is poop. When she is excited about something, she shouts "POOP!" in leiu of  "Aweome!" or "YES!"" She calls us "poop" when she is mad or is just feeling bratty"You're poop, mom." When she is tattling on one of her siblings, it always "Mom, Leila said poop." Or "Dad, Wesley's  poop."
I know, disgusting, right? For a cute little sweet 6 year old to make "poop" her catch phrase. 
Don't get me wrong, sometimes she will add in pee too. When she is furious, its "You're poop and pee and dumb and poop." She is disciplined regularly for her use of this word,  but it doesn't matter. As a mom, sometimes i have to scold with my words, but look away because I am laughing.

The most recent situations were probably the funniest.
Jada was praying with her 2 year old sister Leila before a meal and I was in the other room and, of course, thought it was so sweet that Jada was leading Leila in a prayer.
Then I hear these words. "Dear God. please help Leila not to say poop, or pee, or peepers anymore. In Jesus name amen. Thank you for Leila's butt." Whaaaaaat?! I kept my mouth shut that time, as i didnt want to encourage it. 
I just keep thinking, what on earth is wrong with her? Why is she obsessed with poop?
During the holidays, the song "All i want for christmas is you" was playing on the radio, of course, all Jada wants for christmas is "poop." I said "Jada? really? All you want for christmas is poop? Because I can take all your presents back, and there is plenty of dog poop outside I can give you." She quickly changed her lyrics to "All i want for christmas is Justin Beiber. Mom, can you wrap him up and give him to me so he can kiss me?"
But it doesnt end there, the most recent, yesterday, my son asks "Mom, can i have some fruit loops?  Naturally, Jada immediately follows with "Mom, can i have poop loops?"

Poop is still her favorite word today.

Awesome... gotta love kids! At least mine is just making up words right now. I expect the potty humor to start up in another year or two.

Maria said...

I want some poop loops! Lol! The title of this post is fabulous!
I would have a hard time not laughing too...I can be a little kid too often. I admit, I use the word a lot too. Haha!
I love the photos and the personality that shines through in them! Beautiful family!
Have a sweet one!

Oh my word, this had me laughing out loud! I was a nanny for a little 4 year old girl last year and she was obsessed with the word poop too. It was so hard not to laugh...because let's face much as you don't want to encourage it, it's HILARIOUS what comes out of kids' mouths!

Hahaahaha! I watch a little boy who is the same way! "you smell like poop Kendra" Very matter of fact I tell him that if he thinks that I will fart so he isn't lying. He looks at me for the longest time and changes the subject. I had to leave the room because I was about to bust up laughing!
Gotta love these crazy kids.

She is hysterical! Okay for one of our wedding gifts someone gave us the "what your poop says about you book" well they gave it to my husband because he used to work with highshool kids in the church and they all made fun of poop, because thats what highschool kids and leaders do ha ha

Jana Faith said...

Oh my lanta! I giggled all the way through that! I am 29 and poop still makes me giggle. She may not grow out of it. Know what else is funny? Boogers.

I don't know why kids find that so incredibly funny. it's definitely funnier when I can just read about it here, however =D I think you should give her some of that fake crap you can get at joke stores. I prefer crap to p**p, LOL
