Enter the Dog Poop
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

It's been a week where I found myself saying many things I never thought I'd say. (Tough week.) But this little exchange sums up the recent events of our lives perfectly:

Caden-3yr comes in the house, carrying somthing I assume is dirt.

Me: Could you leave the dirt outside, please?

Caden-3yr: Oh, it is not dirt Mom, so I'll just put it in my room.


Caden-3yr:  Duke poop.


Caden-3yr: No, it's in the house right now, Mom. (He moves his big blue eyes around slowly, just checking that he is indeed standing in the house with the poop, and wondering why I can't see that)

Me: Riiiiight. It IS inside the house right now, and that's a problem because dog poop SHOULD stay outside, where you DON'T TOUCH IT, and hurry up and put it outside so we can wash your hands.

Caden-3yr: Well, o-hay. (that's how he says 'ok')  But I really think Duke wanted me to flush this poop down the potty for him, and that's all I was going to do.

Me: You said you were going to put it in your room.

Caden-3yr: Oh. Well. O-hay, THEN I was going to flush it. 

I just want the poop to stay off the kids and out of the house.  This week that was SO much to ask.

Remind me never to ask you, "What's the poop?"

I love that literal-minded boy. "No, Mom, right now it's inside." Riiiiight. He's SO much like his mom sometimes! (Not when it comes to handling poop, obviously.)

This is too funny! I can't say that I've ever had a kid bring poop into the house. But I have had one of my kids (the ones with 4 legs & a tail that bark) bring other animals into the house. The joys of parenthood!!! Thanks for the good laugh!

I love how kids can make you smile and cry at the same time. I love that they give us these stories every day. God I love that.

Hi, My favorite part of this post is the title - such a perfect stage direction for this scene. Of course, my second favorite is the chance to enter Caden's view of the world and logic. My third favorite is being reminded that I have experienced that same "Mom, this is so simple! Why do I have to stop to expalin it to you?" scene with my literal thinking child. Love, Mom

Seriously.... this is the stuff you need to remember. Better to carry it than eat it.....
