What is it, really?
This phenomenon that occurs
At a particular tender age of our children
When the fascination for the derriere ~
Better known as butt, bum, and behind
(not excluding substances that emerge from it)
Reaches a level of epic proportion
That they think it, speak it, "eat" it
Every two seconds
Eldest boy (EB): Who has the stinkiest butt?
Middle girl (MG): Me!
EB: No, me!
MG: No, me!
(peals of laughter)
This goes on and on and they are thinking this is the funnies routine on planet.
EB: (breaking in song to the tune of Barney's Songs from the Park)
"If you gotta poopy, it's the greatest thing of all.
You smash it, you press it, you put it on bread (repeat twice)"
All of this, of course, while dancing and jumping around the living room.
MG is doing her back-up routine repeating a word here and there
And dancing even more energetically than EB.
She need not focus on the singing parts, that's why.
Little One (LO) is smiling in awe of the genius and talent of big brother and sister.
(more peals of laughter)
This goes on and on and they are thinking this is the funniest song on the planet.
EB: Mom! Look what I found!?!
(With his excited tones, you'd think he'd just found a piece of gold.)
Me: (turning from slicing the green tops off strawberries for the LO)
EB: Mom, doesn't it look like a butt?! (grinning proudly from ear to ear about his precious find)
MG and LO: Wooooow! (huddling closely together over the one-of-a-kind specimen)
Me: (joining the huddle and looking more closely at the said specimen) Oh...yeahhh...it does look like a butt.
At least this fascination with butts and poop generates some creativity and imagination!
