Potty Words and a 2 year old boy

We have a rule in our house about potty words. If you have to use the bathroom, you can say that you have to pee or poop, but you can't just say potty words for fun or use them to call someone a name. We do, however, allow the kids to say all of the potty words they want to say if they are in the bathroom. Sometimes when Peyton is in the bathroom, she'll reel of a stream of potty words (i.e. pee pee head, poop, butt, etc.) just to get them out of her system.

A few days ago Liam was in the kitchen with me and he looked at me and said, "pee pee butt." I told him those were potty words and that if he needed to say them he should go into the bathroom. He said okay and the next thing I knew he was standing on the step stool in the bathroom looking at himself in the mirror while chanting, "pee pee butt poo poo" over and over. It was so funny, but I tried not to laugh. He came back into the kitchen and I asked if he felt better and he said yes! So a little while later I hear the step stool scraping across the bathroom floor, and I hear him again saying his potty words. He did this about 3 or 4 times and at one point he even said, "Mama I need to go say potty words" and off he went!

Last night Mark got the chance to see Liam in action. Liam whispered a potty word while we were eating dinner and I told him that wasn't acceptable and that if he needed to say it he had to go stand in the bathroom. He asked to get down out of his highchair and walked off to the bathroom. Then he came back to the table and finished his dinner. I swear we live with a little comedian. Never a dull moment in the Meadows' house!

That last photo in this post of Liam is to DIE for, he's so stinkin' adorable. I cannot get over how much his Kiddo #2 photo looks like Craig! Is it weird to have a son that looks like your brother?

Sooo funny about the potty words. They are very entertaining ;o)
