Not Your Average Pretend Shopping

Claudia was pretending to take her babies to the grocery store the other day.

Gabe asked her what they were shopping for.

She told him that she was going to buy her babies some stool softener.

I think you all realize that I am not clever enough to make this up on my own. What kind of three year old even knows what stool softener is?

You know, someday my kids are going to be healthy and potty trained and I am going to have to quit blogging because I won’t have anything to write about.

  1. Keep believing, darling, that after you get them potty-trained, all will be well, almost boring, in your life. You need to believe that to get through what’s ahead.

  2. that has to be the funniest thing I’ve ever heard…..

  3. On the contrary- you’ll have plenty more to write about, but I won’t scare you by putting it all in this comment. Trust me– you’ll have blog fodder.

  4. Nah, I’m sure potty training won’t bring an end to excellent blog fodder…there are so many other fun times ahead. Think of all the greatness that puberty could hold!

  5. I think it’s funny how everyone with older kids is commenting today. Famous last words by the way. I want to be around…oh, let’s say 10 years from now…and see if you’ve hung up the keyboard. I’m guessing not.

  6. At least she didn’t say wine.
    wait, that would be my kid.

  7. At least she didn’t say tampons and condoms.

  8. Wow. Just, wow.

  9. When she says “A forty and some chew” – you’ve got real problems.

    The other night my 8 year old picked up her little baby doll and said, “Come here, my little guilt trip.”

    I think I need to start saving up for therapy now.

  10. Holy crap – where did she hear that? Ha ha ha…
    omg I just said holy crap. *snort*

  11. Maybe she means something to make a stool (to sit on) softer???


  12. Laughing at this post and at Kimberly’s comment…hilarious…

  13. Oh my…Kimberly’s too….man.

    And no, Sarah dear, you will never run out of blog fodder, even when you are no longer privy to the inner workings of your children’s inner workings. There is so much more awaiting you.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  14. I am now thanking my lucky stars this has never come up. Then again, potty training is going nowhere, so maybe Claudia is on to something.

  15. No shit?

  16. Hahahaha! Um, she’s seen one too many dulcolax commercials in the pretty pink box?
