Get your shoes on...and everyone push a little...
What is it about leaving home that makes kids have to poop?
What is it?
Every time we go anywhere, someone announces, after being at that some place for about 5 minutes that they have to poop.
We will have only been there 5 minutes!
Maybe I don't understand the inner workings of their insides, but I say, "How could you NOT have known 5 minutes ago that you were going to need to poop?"
While in the store, or at the park, some of my children say "I need to poop" louder than others.
We're still working on that...but they come by their "pride in their poop" honest. They can thank their Dad for their brilliance, their patience...AND their love of letting everyone know when they need to "go."
But I want to know what it is about leaving the house that makes my kids have to go.
Is it the lighting in the store?
The car ride?
The combination of the letters, H-E-B?
Big red bulls eyes?
Someone should study this.
I think if you sat my children in chairs and showed them random pictures, when it got to one with a red bulls eye on it, they would poop their pants.
Now, I've been saying right before we leave the house...
"Everyone listen up...I want you all to kind of push a little...like you're trying to poop...and if you feel anything down below...will you just go now, at home, where you can sit on the potty and I don't gag?"
I'll see if this improves anything and get back to you.
So far, there's just been lots of pre-leaving tooting...but unfortunately no pooping.
