Toddler Talk Tuesday – Toots Galore

I used to think it was only little boys that talked about toots and poop and pee. Nope, my sweet, dear little girl must say “poop” or “poopy” nearing two dozen times. I mean … it was funny the first few times, but no, child – the answer to every question is not “poop!”

Yet however much I roll my eyes, I do laugh most of the time. I mean, bathroom humorย is usually quite funny. And she has so much that a lot of it is bound to be actually funny. So, today I bring you a post full of wind!

Toddler and I were having a conversation last week about what we had planned for the rest of the week:

Me: “… No, that’s on Sunday. Today is Tuesday.”

[Thoughtful pause by Toddler.]

Toddler: “I’m going to do a lot of toots today!”

Me: “… Toots? Because it’s Tuesday?”

Toddler: “Yeah!”

Me: “But it’s ‘Tuesday’ today, not ‘Tootsday.'”

Toddler: “I’m still going to toot a lot!”

(For the record, I didn’t notice any excess gas, but every time someone said “Tuesday” that day I definitely said “Tootsday, hahaha!” in my head … yes, I’m still a kid inside, too.)

Awhile back we were all playing on our bed – building a tent with the blanket, tickling each other, plopping with Baby, you know – and suddenly there was a distinct odor. My husband and I just looked at Toddler:

Toddler: “You know what happens when you press on my tummy? I toot!”

You don’t say…. And sometimes it doesn’t even require a pressing!

Please tell me my darling daughter is not the only little girl to be obsessed with poop and gas….

  1. Haha! I love that she’s doing a play on words.

    Baby Girl has the tendency to announce, “I fahted” (for whatever reason, my little Southern child drops her Rs). This thrills her dad and brother to no end.
