I don’t know about you, but I need a laugh today. Who better to provide a laugh than a child. I do need to warn you that “bathroom talk” is involved in this and if you’re uncomfortable with that … then you might want to stop right here. This is simply another example of why Lea needs lots of prayers living in a house full of boys.

Cooper, my 6 year old, had been in the bathroom for quite a while when I heard him yelling, “DAD, COME QUICK! DAD, COME QUICK!”

Only being six, there are occasions when Cooper still needs a little help in the bathroom. So, thinking he needs a little help, I get out of my chair as the sounds of “DAD, COME QUICK!” still bellow from the bathroom.

I open the door and ask the little man, “Hey buddy, are you needing some help?”

“No Dad, come here!” Cooper says, still perched up on the toilet.

I walk a little closer and ask him, “What is it, Son?”

He leans forward just a shot as if to show me something and says, “Dad look, you got to see this thing!”

I lean over and take a cautious look at what he’s wanting me to see. Wow, I have no clue how something that big could come out of a body of a child that small. My first and only reaction is, “WOW Cooper that thing IS HUGE!”

Cooper looks up at me with a grin that reaches from ear to ear and proudly says, “Thanks Dad!”

You would have thought that I had just paid the boy one of the biggest compliments in his life.

    That is hilarious!!! I’m often amazed at how “large” things can come out of the little ones I watch as well. Hopefully Timbra will share her traumatic stories about the ones I watch from this pas week!

  2. jel says:

    full of it was he?

    oh and how’s the laryngitis?

  3. Brie says:

    I giggled. Then I was afraid…Noah will be at that stage before too long….


    I’m sure I’ll laugh then, too.

  4. Tucker says:

    Thanks for the warning! Like father, like son. I think this conversation would have warranted a “DUDE”.

  5. Soren says:

    Great story. I have been there too. There are some things that only fathers & sons can share. Moms are usually unimpressed by such “creations”, but Dads know just the right words of encouragement.

  6. Kyle Parker says:

    Sad and weird as it is, I can’t wait until these days. Noah’s so curious and fun now.

  7. blogprophet says:

    funny, and normal.

    my little girl occasionally wants to see what she produced in her diaper.

  8. Neva says:

    Our grandson once refused to let me flush the toilet. He wanted Grandpa to see!

    Too funny!!

    hope you feel better.

    I have a 21 month old boy who already likes his dad to see his “poo-poo.” Not quite huge yet, but they sure are stinky!

  10. a cowgirl at heart says:

    That made me chuckle. Good to see you both at The Bakery this afternoon.

  11. Stoogelover says:

    Funny! And truly a father / son moment. My brother went into a public restroom and saw a rather large gift left in a stall … only the giver was so proud of it, he left a business card with it!

  12. makegodsmile says:

    Kind of makes me glad we had all girls.

  13. Dcmba says:

    What? No pictures for the site???

  14. Zack says:

    Great story Trey! God bless! Peace.

  15. Terry says:

    Been there. It’s almost like a hobby for boys, isn’t it?

  16. Zach Detwiler says:

    That turd! – oh.. no pun intended..

  17. Tucker says:

    Trey….I told my boys this story and now…I am called to the bathroom 4 times today, and Michael is 12. They are grounded from blogs!

  18. Roxanne says:

    too funny… I can hear Morgan laughing and saying the same thing about my youngest when he found that the toilet had been left unflushed. He was amazed at the size for such a little guy. Better keep the plunger handy. HA!
    Tell Lea those daughter-in-laws sure are nice to have around as well as the granddaughter after a house full of boys.

  19. newheights says:

    Thanks for that.

    Hey Trey!

    I needed laugh today!!! Just so that you know, girls do the same thing!!! It’s not just a “guy” Thing!


  21. Piper family says:

    I wish “potty” humor were not such a BIG part of my life with three-year old twins. I have big expectations for summer since my son we are STILL working on potty training my son! Please pray for success – the price of Pull-Ups is killing me!

    Brandon: My aunt has a picture of all the different designs of toilets in europe. I do believe she would laugh at this post.
