Boys will be boys...

I'm always amazed by what seems to be attached to the Y chromosome.

Most people witness the ability to make all sorts of car noises at an early age and somehow all boys seem to be able to pick up a stick and turn it into a gun, knife, sword... you get the idea. But there are other things attached to that Y chromosome I thought were learned, but I was wrong.

The other day Junior is getting ready for a shower and he announces he has to "poop." So, I turn off the shower and put him on the bowl, leave the room, because he needs privacy and when he's done he washes his hands and comes out of the bathroom. I go in to restart the shower and he heads into our room climbs up on my husband and the conversation goes something like this:

Jr.: Daddy, smell me.
Dad: Good boy, your hands smell clean.
Jr: No Daddy smell my hiney.

Another conversation between father and son:

Jr: Excuse me, I did a backward burp (that's what Junior calls passing gas--he came up with that one one his own)
Dad: You're excused
Jr. Hey Daddy, can you smell it?

Bathroom humor, it's part of the Y Chromosome.

LOL! Unfortunately for me, even my daughter gets in on the action with hubby and son. How sad.

When she was about your tot's age, she would put her hand over her bottom and say, "scuse me." At least she had manners. :o)

Well, I can add one more thing to the bathroom thing...

Last night he gets this very serious little voice and says:

"I pee peed in the shower, but that okay, right."
