We have slowly begun school up again, just a few days last week and probably a few this week (if the girls are still alive--something for another day when I find my life humorous again). Most of the beginning of school for Princess #1 is a lot of review, so she's breezing through it.

Anyway, yesterday, she was working through her seatwork and all of a sudden got the giggles. And if you've heard her spontaneous giggle, you know it's very catching. So soon all four of us are laughing without really knowing why. Then she says, "I had to write the word "toot" three times!" Of course, Princess #2 seized the moment to get out her weekly potty-talk requirement as quickly as she could. Even Princess #3 got into the (dare I say fun?) and says, "once I tooted". [Insert gales of laughter from all three girls and the queen's frustration at needing to be responsible and NOT laughing at that little comment.]

And so here is my question for the void-why oh why are the "potty" words so funny to hear and funny to say?

I don't know why it's so funny, but for some reason, it's funny as adults too (or perhaps that's b/c about 45% of my time is spent near dog and cat butts). :)

the tootin' words must be so funny because the sound effects that go along with them are, too!


see? you laughed, didn't you?:)

That is too funny. Personally, I wish I were laughing with them. I hate always being the responsible fuddy duddy.
