Just like Daddy

How do you know if your child has done a poo?  You pull open the top of their pants and nappy and peer in of course.  You could go by smell, but sometimes that’s a false alarm.  Kids fart.  Farts stink….  You get what I’m saying.  We always check Hannah’s nappy this way.  Yes, she’s still in a nappy.  Sigh.  She refuses to wear big girl undies and flails like an octopus on red cordial caught in a net  if you try to put her on the potty.  Plus I have a newborn.  That doesn’t exactly leave a lot of time for potty training.  Giant sigh (about the potty training, not the newborn…).

Anyway, that is totally not the point of this post.

The other day, Hannah, cheeky girl that she is, went up to Aaron and pulled at the back of his pants.

“Did Daddy do a poo poo?”  He asked her.

“Yeah.”  She said, a cheeky grin plastered on her face.

“I don’t think so, Daddy does poo poos on the potty!  Let me check,” Aaron humoured her as he put his hand down the back of his pants, pretending to search for non-existent poo.

“What??!!!  Where’d this come from??!!!!”

Hannah looked at him mischievously, as she erupted in laughter.

Aaron held up the tip of a yellow crayon.  “How did this get in there?!!”

“I PUT IT THERE!!!” She exclaimed proudly.

I sat back, watching and laughing my head off.  Aaron has always been the joker of the family.  A “torment” as Grandma puts it.  He’s all light-hearted and silly like that.  So yeah, I think it’s HILARIOUS that Hannah torments him back.

Aaron handed the crayon back to her.

She walked straight back to Aaron, pulled at the back of his pants and in went the crayon again.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    Too cute! I love it when my kids pull pranks on my husband. It somehow makes me feel closer to them…like they’re on my side 😉

    I do know how long it takes to do the drawings. I have my grands do them for me. I enjoyed your story. I have two grands who are both two yr old’s. I had one of them for two days this week. They are both good to go to the potty but have to be reminded. We ask them at least every thirty minutes if they need to go potty. They still have days when they don’t want to go. Congrats on your baby. Children are such a blessing.

    This is perfect. My husband calls my kids “coconut heads” because they’re always bonking them on things. Last night my youngest bonked hers against his head HARD and started laughing saying “you’re a coconut head too!” I love how clever they are! If you need help switching to normal underwear, I found organic diapers helped. Something about the fabric. http://www.greencupboards.com/baby-kids/diapering/cloth-diapers-1/thirsties-duo-wrap-aplix-pack-of-2.html
