Life Lesson: Everybody Poops

Laying on the couch this morning sometime between Little Einsteins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse I get a tug from the two year old playing on the floor.

Holding up his biggest Brontosaurus and pointing to it's rear he asks, "Mommy, dinosaur poop?"

Half alive with fatigue and nausea I answer, "Yes Lukey, dinosaurs poop."

A minute later I get another tug and look down at the accumulating pile of the animal kingdom below. His inquisition begins easily with barnyard animals.

"Mommy, cow poop?"
"Yes dear, cows poop."
"Mommy, horse poop?"
"Yes my love, horses poop."
"Mommy, doggie poop."
"Yes darling"
"Mommy, kitty poop?"
"Uh huh."

Curious minds don't stop there, and I proceeded to confirm the inevitable that bison, turtles, elephants, moose, white tigers, panda bears, kangaroos, and every extinct dinosaur do, in fact, poop.

Some of you might be out there saving the world, but I'm teaching bowel fundamentals...one animal at a time.
