Watch Your Mouth

Thoroughly frustrated with our ongoing bathroom struggles I vented to Gonzo, "I am so tired of wiping that five year old A-S-S!"

From the next room comes a tiny monotone voice, "Five year old A-S-S. Five year old A-S-S. Five year old A-S-S."

Moral of the story: Be careful what you say, or spell, in the presence of an echolalic child.

Oh no! I've definitely made this mistake before. I wonder what her teachers will say if she repeats it at school! But who could blame you, wiping three bottoms (not including your own) is just too much!!

I recently spelled out S-H-I-T and had Scott trying to sound it out and still not understand what I was talking about.

Lori- I hope she doesn't repeat it!

That is too funny about Scott!

Marla said...

Oh, yeah! Been there done that. And know the frustration of wiping butts. I still wipe my ten year olds. Oh, well.

Everytime I suggest SB try wiping his own tush, he puts up the biggest fight. After 7 years of this, I'm ready to hand over the reins.

Delilah said...

Tulipmom and Marla- 7 and 10?! Yikes!

You and me both dearie. Tell you what, I'll nip along with the duct tape and you can do me and I'll do you!

Maddy- I think that's the only thing that will keep my mouth shut!

OMG! that is hilarious! We don't wipe butts anymore (except the one still in diapers). If he doesn't do it, it doesn't get done and he HATES the feeling of being unclean. I tell people my laziness more than anything will give my kids their independence..."Do it yourself!"

Well, I take that back. I do wipe butts in public. (Oh that sounds strange) But don't need strangers looking at us weird for our smell too!
