Overheard: A Conversation Between Preschool Boys

Jan 14 2012

I’m away this weekend with my littlest three kiddos in the great state of ALASKA. We’re also undoubtedly in the great state of chaos, which is where we usually reside, but, hey, we like it here.

While I’m away, I’m sharing tidbits that I originally posted only on the Five Kids Facebook page, and I’m doing rather selfishly. See, I realized there’s some stuff I want shifted over here into the “permanent blog record” ’cause this is my family scrapbook, and I want to make sure I don’t lose these pieces over time. So if you already read this stuff over there, I hope you’ll forgive me; you can check back in next week when I bombard you with pictures of kids gamboling in the Alaskan snow-covered wilderness.

In the meantime, I leave you with this tidbit:

Overheard: A Conversation Between Preschool Boys

Overheard, this conversation between my preschool boys:

“Check this OUT. It. Is. AWESOME.”
“WOAH! Did you make that all by yourself?!”
“Yep. It wooks wike a grown-up one, but I did it myself.”

I couldn’t help but take a peek to see what all the fuss was about.

That’s when I discovered that they were looking in the toilet, talking about a particularly magnificent poo.

“‘Gratulations, man,” the one said, with all sincerity.
The other looked him in the eye and nodded. “Thanks.”

And then they hugged it out.

Next time my kids are bickering (which will be in 3… 2… 1…), I’m going to remember that we are ALSO an extraordinarily supportive family.

If, on the other hand, potty stories make you want to vomit your reindeer sausage, stay far, far away.
