If Anyone Overhead

August 18, 2007 at 10:14 pm (Parenting)

I can only imagine what this conversation sounded like to anyone listening….

Natalie (4): That’s my poop Noah.

Noah (7): But we can share. We can put all the poop together.

Natalie: No! You have your own poop.

Me: Noah, leave your sister’s poop alone.

Noah: But mine’s broken!

At this point the hilarity of the conversation stopped me. The kids were actually in the backyard, with shovels and pails, picking up dog poop. Apparently Noah’s shovel broke so he was trying to condense the poop into one bucket or something. I don’t know. At that point Natalie dissolved into tears and we gave up for the day.

    That is too much! I wonder what your neighbors thought as they listened from behind the fence 🙂

    I think you guys had this conversation once before and it sounded a lot like this one. You are going to have to come up with something else to motivate them so they don’t grow up thinking they need to have all the poop!

    How have you trained them so well that they are arguing over who picks up the poop?! I will have to learn these parenting secrets someday!
