butt wipes

While Tater is a cutie and tries to give the most hugs and kisses, Tot is the one that always tries to be funny. And this story is about butt wiping. For those without children, be aware that one of the things that happens is teaching your child how to wipe his butt. It's not so bad when they are infants and you are changing diapers... you can do this in an open space. Then they start pooping in the toilet. Green and blue fog appears and you want to gag when you open the door. There is no escape. Especially when you hear: Mom, Mom, come help me.

A couple of options are available. Just tell them to keep trying and put their underwear back on. Not the best option as they will smell like that green and blue fog every time they are near you.

Or you can try your best to hold your breath and fight your way in to assist in the butt wiping.

Right now, Tater can pretty much do it himself and get it clean. No assistance needed from mom. Phew.

Tot on the other hand. A whole different story. One you will get to hear right now. After the "Mom, Mom, come here"... I headed to the bathroom. I take a breath and open the door. Not so bad.

Tot points to the toilet "I flushed it".
Mom: **Silently yells Yipeee!!! **
Mom: Did you wipe your butt?
Tot: Nope
Mom: Ok, you need to try. Get a Kandoo and wipe it.
Tot: Ok... gets a Kandoo wipe, wipes his butt.
Mom: You need to try again please.
Tot: Ok... gets a wipe, sticks it between his butt cheeks, holds it with his butt cheeks and does a little dance shaking his butt with kandoo wipe sticking out.
Mom: ** loses it and laughs out loud **
Mom: Tot, you need to wipe with it not dance with it stuck in your butt
Tot: **sweet laughter** Ok... continues shaking butt and now laughing
Mom: Really, you need to wipe your butt and flush it down the toilet.
Tot: Ok... wipes his butt, and gets another wipe,again, sticks it between the cheeks, turns butt towards mom and shakes his butt
Mom: **Trying really hard not to laugh** Tot, you must wipe all the poop off your butt please.

Finally, Tot wipes his butt and the wipe looks clean. I'm done. I have to get out of there before he finds something else to do.

yaa... life is always entertaining at our house.

People are staring at me at the airport because I am sitting here laughing out loud. You need to start video blogging! OR, at least get a picture of that for his high school graduation :-)
