Just the Beginning (and a lot of poop)

Dumb poop.

That’s what she called me yesterday.

And I realized that this is the beginning of a long list of names I’ll be called in the coming years.

The roles have changed now, from changing the poop to being called it.



She’s growing faster than I could have imagined; quicker than I was warned, and her questions sometimes slap me in the face with their honesty and seriousness.

When did she get so big?

We as the parents are the authority on all things right now and that’s scary. I don’t know why dumb poop isn’t appropriate. I think it’s hilarious.


I’m no expert in math, science, or physics.

I’m not even sure I’ve got this parenting thing down yet.

But I do know she can ask any question and I’ll do my very best to answer it truthfully and in an age appropriate manner.


Most of the time…

Even if it means stiffing a fist full of giggles to explain why we don’t call our mother a dumb poop.

    It was always a battle for me, to NOT laugh when my kids did naughty (yet funny) stuff. I frequently lost that battle!
    They still grew up to be pretty awesome so I think you’re ok. A sense of humor is a valuable parenting tool! 😉

    Yeah… It’s hard to hold back the giggles sometimes isn’t it! I can’t believe the things that come out of their mouths. Experts we are not but do our best well… That means we are working hard at it and that means a lot! Someday when our girls are teenagers and we post about them hating us and calling us something heart wrenching we will laugh remarrying this moment! Isn’t being a momma fun!!

      that’s why I’m glad I’m writing about thing now… when my daughter is a teenager I want to remember the sweet things that she said.

    Omg I laughed so hard! I think she is just so funny! She comes up with amazing names! I wish my daycare friends would copy her. I would have to run and hide just to laugh! I was called a loser today and told to shut up (all from a 3 1/2 year old) I would take dumb pooh any day! Oh and I look forward to you’re posts when she is 9!
