Overheard: A Conversation Between Preschool Boys

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.

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.

  1. When my boys (7 and 4) find themselves in the bathroom at the same time, inevitably, one will ask the other: “Wanna have a pee battle?” I’m not sure what that is, and I don’t really want to know. As long as they keep it in the toilet.

  2. OMG, that is too funny!
    When my son was in pre-school he told me the story of three-cross-pee. Never heard of it? It’s when three boys gather around the toilet to pee, and their pee crosses. Four cross pee is hard, because it’s hard to get four kids around the toilet. Yep. Money well spent.

  3. My siblings and I are all in our 50’s, my mom still likes to tell a story of my older brother ‘helping’ my sister to potty train. He would stand beside her while she was on the toilet and say “now just go uhhhhh”. Toddler speak for poo pushing . . .
