In one hole, out the other

So, at first I thought that maybe I had too many comics focusing on poop. But then I was talking to my mother-in-law, and she was being all complimentary about my blog, and saying she thought I was funny.

I was like, "It's just because you like the poop jokes." And she surprised me, and said "I think some of those are really funny." So, you can blame this comic on my mother-in-law, who loves poop jokes.

But for the real-life scenario that inspired the cartoon, you'll have to blame that on me. Addison sometimes takes a long time on the potty, reading multiple books and singing songs and whatnot. And sometimes she takes a long time to finish her milk, because she's playing with her food or spinning in circles or whatever. So, being the very efficient multi-tasker that I am, the solution seemed pretty obvious.

Although once my wife saw it, the experiment ended. She doesn't respect my brilliance. Or science.

  1. First you share some of our "privileged" marital conversations; now you tell the world that my mom likes poop jokes. What's next? (Wait, don't answer that...)

  3. I second Emily's suggestion. Purely for science, of course.

    1. "Science" is the main excuse I use for things at our house.

  4. My boy is eating at the table. He looks up suddenly, and uncomfortably.

    "Poo-oop," he murmurs in a quiet voice.

    Very quiet. He persists for a few more moments before I understand him.

    "Okay, let's go." I sweep him up in my arms, ready to take him into position on his throne a few ten steps away.

    He struggles in my arms, leaning over to the table.

    "Waah," he protests. His inexplicably long-reaching hand manage to scrabble and grab a piece of fruit strap (dried flattenned mixed fruit pulp).

    Satisfied, he takes his security fruit strap with him to the toilet, on the toilet, plays with it (dropping it on the floor, licking it, placing it on his head, placing it on his foot).

    When he had finished on the loo, he was still holding onto the fruit strap.

    A+ for persistence. D- for hygiene.

    1. It's kind of funny how a lot of those poop moments seem a little like a religious experience for the kid. After a while, ours starts shouting "BIG POOP!" very excitedly, and runs around pointing to the lop-sided tumor visible on her backside. We're so proud.
