Little Sal, The Sequel


Here at The House of Joy we enjoy reading children's books by Robert McCloskey and we particularly like "Blueberries for Sal."

We like the sound her berries make as they hit the empty bottom of her tin pail.

So it was quite the LITERARY MOMENT tonight when The Rooster, hearing the sound of her own tiny, pellets of poo hitting the toilet water, shouted,

"Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk!!"



Poop on the potty, people.

Poop. On. The. Potty.

Kuplink, indeed!


****************************

... and since I'm publishing a post in the butt and poo category anyway....

****************************

The Mayor held the microphone attachment to his tape player and said,

"I'm going to be singing some new songs tonight everyone, so stick around..."


I stood behind him enjoying the show and, without warning, The Mighty Wind escaped!

"Mommy, you made a bad smell!" The Mayor shouted into his microphone.


[Yeah, yeah, yeah.]

"Do you like the smell of your own farts, Mom?"

"Uh... do you like the smell of your farts?" I countered.

"That's the thing, mom. My farts don't really smell."

That's my boy!

We spend a lot of time talking about poop and farts too. I may actually miss it when this time passes. I did say, "may."

Mahala said...

An ex-girlfriend told me, and I quote , "It all goes back to bodily functions."

flutter said...

Oh but he's wrong, they smell like ROSES!!

Mrs. Fussy Fussypants said...

I shall never view the blueberry muffins without thinking of Rooster again.

~ahem~

Hahahahaha! Congrats on the kuplink! We're awaiting the day when Buddy gets with the program and does some kuplanking of his own.

LSM said...

Poop in the potty is no minor accomplishment. I'm still grateful to my friend who bribed Gym Girl with a promise of a trip to McDonald's to accomplish the same feat.

zellmer said...

poop in the potty is HUGE! congrats the rooster.

JCK said...

Hey congrats on the kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk! This milestone CANNOT be overemphasized.

And The Mayor...stick around...I'm sure there will be more.

These are the moments! Even those of mighty wind.

wyo said...

Oh my goodness! I almost didn't read on to the hilarity of the poop ... "Blueberries for Sal" was one of my favorite books as a child, and I still have the book! Unless Little Girl has lost it, that is ...

Shannon said...

Ah, petite pellets of poo plopping in the potty...kerplink, kerplunk.

I love his opening line to the Mayor's little concert. It's so lounge singery.

Queen Karana said...

I think I've had a case of the mighty wind around here...
everyone is dyin' for some fresh air. LOL

Congrats on the kupline! That's awesome.

That Rooster is such a clever girl!

Catherine said...

We had poop in the potty this week too! And so far she's milked us for a trip to chuck e cheese, a bracelet and a race car. Right now, if she asked for a pony in exchange for constant pooping in the potty I might consider it. Except the pony's poop duty would be worse than hers.

PixelPi said...

Congrats to the Rooster for the kerplunks, etc. That's big time stuff!

Actually, Bluberries for Sal was one of my favoite books too. Is he the same guy who wrote Make Way for Roosters?

Nancy said...

Blueberries for Sal was one of my daughters favorite books. We read it more than I cared too, lol

Good for Roo and her Poo!

Laura said...

Too cute!!!!

thanks for sharing!

Omaha Mama said...

Poop in the potty. How very, very exciting indeed!

I really need to get my kids those microphone sets. Although, the way you describe it makes me picture the Mayor as a lounge singer in a bad leisure suit.

ewe are here said...

Two 2 1/2 year old calls farting 'parfing', and finds the whole thing very amusing.

Feener said...

oh how i needed this laugh this am.

Tracey said...

I love Blueberries for Sal. And I relly LOVE poo on the potty. Do you think the author ever thought he would inspire a toddler so???

Oh, and Catherine- I can affirm that the horse duty is worse. I just came in from doing that duty. For a CLYDESDALE!

Mrs. Chicky said...

I hope there's a good assortment of scented candles in the House of Joy.

Kyla said...

Go Roo! Poo on the potty is HUGE!

And the Mayor is so funny. And a little delusional. But mostly funny.

Mimi said...

Poo on the potty! OMG! It's a banner day for sure!

Bastet said...

My favorite, my daughter blames daddy for all the bad smells! LOL!

~JJ! said...

Sounds like our house!

Fa likes to blame the dog though.

I can tell the difference.

I consider myself the fart connoisseur in these parts.

Melanie said...

I LOVE Robert McClowsky's books. I won't think of them the same from now on.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

You can never go wrong with posts on poop and farts! LOL!

Jenifer said...

Look at you with your advanced potty training skills!

So you erased that tape right?

Lightening said...

Living in your household must be an absolute riot!!!! What a laugh. Would love to be a fly on the wall at times. :)

motherbumper said...

Personally, my farts smell like fresh-baked cinnamon buns. Or that i what I keep telling the girl (always blame the pet).

Anonymous said...

I love my rooster girl. What a literary genius. She certainly processes what she reads. First the Billy Goats Stanley and now poop that goes kerplink, kerplunk! Can't wait to read to her and have the two of them give me one of their wild lounge concerts. Love, Grandma Seattle.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

LMAO

That is awesome, Jess!

carrie said...

Congratulations on the P.O.T.P.!

mamatulip said...

Dave brought a book home on Friday called "Where's the Poop?" It's a lift-flap book and I immediately thought of you when I saw it. You MUST get it for your kids.

Bob said...

One of my favorite characters from childhood reading was Homer Price! Thank you for reminding me.

Mommahbear. said...

ROFL!

missburrows said...

Sal is a girl? Why did I think Sal was a boy? Hmm.

Magpie said...

That is your boy.

Rusti said...

Thanks for the laugh - I needed it this week :)
