What is brown and sounds like a bell?*

On Saturday Claudia and I were in Sunglass Hut in the mall. I was trying on sunglasses and Claudia was helping me by touching all of the lenses.

At some point she noticed that her father and brother were no longer with us and she said “Where Daddy Ian go?” (She talks in complete sentances, but she doesn’t like to waste her time with any pesky conjunctions.) I told her that they had gone to the restroom to change Ian’s diaper.

This must have given her the idea, because all of the sudden, my delicate little flower yells “I HAVE DIARRHEA!” Even though it sounded more like dia-wea I’m still pretty sure everyone else knew exactly what she was talking about. Being the mature adult that I am, I doubled over laughing and so she yelled it again. “I HAVE DIARHEA!”

The strangest part about it is that it wasn’t even true. I checked her diaper and she didn’t even have solid poop. Nothing. She was barely wet.

My baby girl has learned about bathroom humor. I think she’s a riot.

Thank you to Monty Python’s Flying Circus for my favorite poop joke.

  1. “This must have given her the idea, because all of the sudden, my delicate little flower yells “I HAVE DIARRHEA!” ”

    I can just picture the wheels turning in her head too!

  2. First off – love the fact that you have your own personal page.

    Second – my daughter has done the same thing. It cracks me up.

  3. The acorn does not fall far from the tree I see…

  4. At least it wasn’t during dinner. What a cute kid. I’d have laughed too. 😉

  5. That’s so funny! I can’t wait to hear what’s going to come out of my twins’ mouths. I’m going to be just like you — laughing at all the hilarious things they say, even if it compels them to say them a million more times. And always in public, right?

  6. “The acorn does not fall far from the tree,” Kemp? I think you meant, “I guess it runs in the family.”

    heh heh, runs.

  7. OMG that is the funniest thing I’ve heard today! Children are so precious!

  8. I am cracking up. I love it when they learn bathroom rumor.

  9. My daughter has done the same thing too but mostly she likes to announce to everyone that she has just farted.

  10. Reason #872 why kids are awesome.

  11. “I guess it runs in the family.” Damn, you win LHM.

  12. Louis just discovered he is male and can’t poop in public.
