Conversation over Banana Pancakes

Declan: Dada, my tummy hurt at school yesterday.

Bryan: It did?

Declan: Yes. A lot. Then I went to the bathroom and pooped.

Bryan: Well, that’s good.

Declan: But I pooped so much the toilet wouldn’t flush.

Bryan: {trying not to laugh} Oh really? Did you go get a teacher?

Declan: Yes.

Bryan: And what did he do?

Declan: He went and got the cus.. cus..

Bryan: The custodian?

Declan: Yeah. And he fixed it. {pause} And my tummy felt a lot better.

Bryan: Well, that’s good. {pause} And I am highly impressed you managed to clog up an industrial strength sewer system.

Declan: *I* didn’t do it! My poop did!

    I LOVE conversations like that! I also love the post-conversation crazy laughter that my husband and I share away from the storyteller.

    Oh, the joys of a 5 year old!!! Hope managed to plug a toilet that you are suppose to be able to flush like 20 golf balls at one time…without clogging it. I think that the owners of that toilet deserve a refund. 🙂 I often wonder how such a small person can poop so much!!

    Thanks for the laugh!!!

    NICE! I was thinking about making pancakes for breakfast tomorrow. Now I’m having second thoughts.

    Very philosphical that he can separate his own identity from his own poop!

    TOO funny.

    As a mother of boys, one of which was spending waaaaaaaay to much time in the bathroom last night, I appreciate this one!

    Hehehe!! Been going through the same thing with my little man here at the house. Of course having the low-flow toilets doesn’t help.

    Boys and their skills….

    Declan must have been suffering from what Jake calls “Missouri.”

    (The story’s at the bottom.)

    Clogging up an industrial toilet is totally impressive.

    Kendra: Seriously, sometiems, I do not know how Bryan and I keep a straight face.

    Carrie: LMAO… wayyyyyyy too much time, huh??

    Michelle: I think the marketing with the golf balls is BUNK! 😉

    Sure: Sorry to spoil your breakfast!

    Neil: I KNOW! More proof he is an old soul.

    Two Shews: Missouri! I love it!

    The Dump of Doom! Hilarious!

    When we got married, the Rock Star brought his brother and best friend over from the UK to be part of the wedding. Because of the time difference, they all ended up being awake in their hotel room at 4 in the morning, although none of them wanted to say anything for fear of waking up the others. His best friend went into the bathroom and came out about 10 minutes later.

    “Lads,” he announced, “I’ve just done a MASSIVE dump and it just won’t flush!”

    Needless to say, there was no more sleeping that morning.

    LMFAO (I refuse to roll on the floor this month)

    That’s freakin’ hilarious. I LOVE it. Seriously, I was tearing up a bit reading it. I can’t WAIT until my son comes home with stories like that. Seeing that the little tyke is only 3 months old, I have a few years…but how awesome!!
