Potty Words

The other day when I was changing Katelyn's diaper in the living room, I realized it was poop only after I had wrestled her to the ground and opened it up. Great, what do I do now? I had the extra diaper in hand but had not grabbed the wipes from her bedroom. I couldn't fasten her back up to go get the wipes because it would probably take another 15 minutes to wrestle her back into diaper changing position.

So, I called for Gavin to get me the wipes. Which he does ever soooo slowly. The whole time I am struggling to keep Katelyn pinned to the ground with a dirty diaper. When slow as molasses Gavin finally drags his feet into the room he asks me why I need the wipes. Really Gavin? Why do you think?

Now I've got Katelyn screaming and wiggling all over and Gavin standing too far away from me for me to grab the wipes, and he won't give them to me.

Gavin: Why do you need wipes mommy?
Me: Because I am changing her diaper, GIVE ME THE WIPES!
Gavin: But, why do you need them?

Does he really want to hear me say it? So I answer him in the best way I know: Because she has shit all over the place, Now come on and GIVE ME THOSE WIPES!

Gavin's response? Mom, is shit the same as poop?
My word I almost died laughing.
