Okay, so I get to work this morning and was greeted by two very giggly kids. The three-year old girl (I will call her Karen), was much louder than normal and was just running around like crazy! So, in an effort to calm her down, I simply asked what she had done the night before. A simple question. Her answer?
“I pooped in the back yard!”
I was at a loss. That was not anything near what I had expected her to say. I glanced at her mom to verify this information, and she very lightly nodded her head.
“Why in the world would you do that?” I had to ask.
Karen giggles. “Because I had to go and I didn’t want to go in the house. It’s still out in the back yard. Daddy didn’t clean it up! So, we can’t play outside today.”
I thought her mom was going to faint. She had no idea the mess had not been cleaned up! At that point, even though it was inappropriate, I burst out laughing. My daughter did, too. Oh my goodness, what a start to our day!
