A carnival of poo...

I have maundered on a lot over time about my son padding around our appartment. Now, however, he is a little boy; and little boys, it turns out, do not pad at all; rather, they clank. Clutching a nest of toy cars and airplanes, the spud cannot trust us enough to leave them unattended even for a second and is forever toting more cars than he can carry. He cannot do even so much as a quick wee wee without dropping bits of cast metal into the loo, the bath, under his father's feet, it's ridiculous.

We have, however, had progress on pooing in the loo - cars or no cars - and to that end, I am celebrating the hopeful end of all poo stories on this blog by inviting any interested parties to send me your favourite poo stories.

I know you have them. Lurking in your archives. If I get enough responses I'll publish links back in a full-on, glorious, poo-story-dump in a couple of weeks time... what do you think?

ps, I dedicate this post to my brother because he loves poo stories SO MUCH!

I'm feeling the urge to write a post, simply so that I can join in this carnival. I was sure I'd written some poo posts in my time, but I couldn't find them.

You should go to More Than Just a Mother's blog. She wrote about poo recently (18 May).

With 3 children I don't know how it is that I don't have a good post on poop, but I don't!

I do, however, know all about fishing Matchbox cars out of the toilet! Both Cooper and Maren have an entourage that must follow them everywhere. My car is starting to resemble a toy box on wheels.

You think - when all this stuff is happening to you - that you will never forget it.

But actually not so much. I cannot think of a single poo story with which to embarrass The Hairs; One and Two.

Must be a mothering failure.

Now if you had wanted pee stories............

Hmmmm I do have 'some' (about a million and a half) but...well they are not postable really, too many cuss words.

There are many. They continue (only yesterday did the potty trained bottom produce an unpotty trained moment).

Maternal Tales is definitely going to have to contribute...

Lola said...

I don't suppose you want the story of my husband on a drunken trip with his motorbike pals a few years ago which featured involuntary poo in a 'Trainspotting' kind of way - oh, children was it? never mind then.

Laura - Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy? said...

You know I have lots of poo!

Remind me nearer the time and I'll get them over to you.

careful or we shall begin to call you "poo ma ma"!

Once upon a time there was a young girl who had mastered walking and decided Mommy should go shopping for "pink panties please". Mommy was very excited and very fearful of teaching this important skill just right.

About this time one of the fish died and because the mother (no names please) was a coward when the child caught her flushing the fish down the toilet - told the child that he was going for a swim in the ocean (not a total lie!). When next the urge to poo hit - said child would not go on the toilet for fear of drowning the fish "somewhere on his journey" in poo!
So the little pink potty was introduced, the baby chairs (to the big potty) removed and were unused until such time as we could be notified that Herman (the fish] had made it to the Atlantic. And the weak, lying mom had to ferry the poo down the stairs, close the door, lock it, and flush the poo in an unmanned toilet!

Well, I guess this qualifies, even though it isn't technically about poop...

Hi! I loved your blog from the moment I read the first sentence.
My aunt has twin boys, we live in the same house so I got to share in a little bit of the poo action.

It sure is fun when you sit back and laugh about it.

Poo stories are the best. (:

Mom de Plume said...

Hmmm, I have a VERY recent poo-in-the-bath story which I may just have to enter :)

I have an award for you at http://tankgirl77.blogspot.com/2009/08/i-got-award.html

...thinking about that poo post now!
