    My 3rd grade son came home with a family crest type assignment. On it were pictures of different events in his life. It started with the most important one..his birth. The caption under it said, "me, giving my mom bathroom problems." The picture really did look like I was crapping him out. :lol:

    Where did he get that? Well this summer my stomach was hurting for a few days pretty badly and being concerned boys my sons were, they asked why I was hurting so badly. I told them I've had Irritable Bowel Syndrome every since C. was born. Well being boys and having a natural general facination with the word poop in general, they wanted to know more. So in the end we laughed when I said, "C. gave me the gift of bathroom problems." I never dreamed that would end up on an assignment! :blush:

    Another story...and more proof boys love that word...
    My baby (4) was standing in the public bathroom stall with me today saying about as loud as he could, "MOM, when you get done pooping, just tell me okay. I will flush the toliet for you." Awww..what a gentleman. Except he never stopped saying it even though I promised I would let him. In fact, he decided he had to go and couldn't wait on me ("Mom, hurry I have to poop too.") so he asked if he could go in the next stall. I told him he could. In the next stall he was STILL obsessed. He said, "MOM, when you finish wait for me. I will flush your toliet and I will flush my toliet too." AWWW :hugs:and :blush::blush:

    I have a book in my class library, The Scoop on Poop--we can never find it as it's always hidden away in someone's desk so that they can read it!

    Yep, I gave mommy poop problems was hilarious to them. Consider your hopes dashed. It never goes away. It does get better in the sense that poopyhead is not used like a swear word, term of endearment or a word to hurl at someone to make fun of them or just plain because they like the way it sounds. At least now it comes with a topic.

    I have to admit....even now...as a female and 24 years old...I still smile at the sound of the word...poop....it just sounds funny. :blush: We're talking about senses and we were talking about smells...so I asked about good smells and bad smells...Wouldn't you know it...one of them said that "dog poop is a bad smell!" :lol: So we all had a good chuckle and kept going.

    In Japanese it's unchi (pronounced oon-chee, with the "oo" like "book" and the "ee" like "bee"). I got to listen to my 7-year old and his friend call each other "unchi-head" all last year. Usually shouting it at each other across the park. A lot easier to take than if it were in English.
