The events unfolded something like this
Parker: Why do I always have to poop?
Me: I don’t know.
P: I poop every day!
M: That’s good. That means you’re normal.
He stopped looking so uncomfortable and went back to playing.
M: Do you have to poop now?
M: Ok, if you have to poop just go.
A while later the toilet flushed. Out came Parker.
P: Mom, I washed my bum but there’s just poop water.
P: Come see.
I thought maybe he used too much toilet paper and the toilet was clogged. No. There was diarrhea juice spots all over the bathroom floor.
M: This happened when you went into the bathroom?
P: Yes. This is not a good day.
After one dose of Children’s Pepto Bismol he has been fine for the last several hours. Whatever it was it’s gone now. But I had to preserve the conversation because it was too cute.
