Right of Passage

June 25, 2009

It is almost inevitabe that every young child will not heed his parents warnings. “Get that out of your mouth before you swallow it!” The it can be almost anything, but most often it is the penny that finds its way down the esophogus to the stomach. Most kids are quite alarmed when it finally happens. Will it ever come out? Is it going to hurt? Do I need to go to the hospital to have it cut out? P’s went through the process when she was younger being on edge until the penny finally emerged.

For a 4 year old boy, already obsessed with farting and burping, the thought process is entirely different. The Little Toad is just about elated at the prospect of having money come out in his poop. This just happened less than an hour ago, and he was already in the bathroom trying to encourage a movement so he could see the penny come out. It is going to be a long next few days.

    That is hilarious! Definitely your husband’s spawn. “Poop is funny.”

    and I just got this joke in email yesterday: A little three year-old boy is sitting on the toilet. His mother thinks he has been in there too long, so she goes in to see what’s up. The little boy is gripping on to the toilet seat with his left hand and hitting himself on top of the head with his right hand. His mother says: “Billy, are you alright? You’ve been in here for awhile.” Billy says: “I’m fine, mommy. I just haven’t gone ‘doody’ yet.” Mother says: “ok, you can stay there a few more minutes. but, Billy, why are you hitting yourself on the head?” Billy says: “works for ketchup.”

    P.S. Great title
