15 Things Kid Should Not Do While Pooping

Kids and bathroom stuff... It never ends.

I came across an old blog post yesterday that talked about how my kids did a lot of crazy stuff while going to the bathroom. And all I could think was "THIS WAS TWO WHOLE ENTIRE YEARS AGO?!" Because sadly, nothing has really changed.

Every once in a while, a small person will be in there, ostensibly for the purposes of pooping. Then I'l hear a CRASH, quickly followed by a little voice hollering "I'M OK! It's all right!"

What the hell is going on in there? Why is there crashing and things going thud?

So here is a list 15 things that kids should NOT do while pooping. I thought it might be educational for my kids, so I read it to them and they just thought it was funny. Because you know,  poop.

  2. I cringe everytime I hear "Mommy, what is this?" when my son is pooping. His potty is right next to my drawer, and he goes through it while he's pooping. I thought I had moved all the tampons to a locked cabinet, but about a month ago I hear him asking what something is, and when I get to the bathroom he has taken a tampon out of the wrapper and has it up to his mouth, playing it like a recorder. I almost peed I was laughing so hard.

  3. Don't try to pull out a "stuck poop" with your fingers...

    Ugh! Biggest mess yest.

  5. This list is sadly familiar ... makes me glad we don't have a cat, though.

  6. Also my Little Miss Adventure will not put her poopy toilet paper in the toilet, NOOOO she has to put it in the wastecan. Then the entire bathroom continues to smell like poop, and if the trashcan is on the floor the dog will get to them and then scatter it all throughout the house. Really gross.

  7. Hahaha. My sweet child has done a number of these. Her favorite go to is "Momma, you've gotta see this! It Smells awful! Come see!"

  8. Can I add "Try to wipe while still pooping?" Because smearing it up your back is not helpful...

  9. My son isn't working on potty training yet but my boyfriend takes pride in the smell he made and asks me to see.. hopefully our son doesn't take after him.

  10. I love all things Disney and am passing this along to my children. My 4 year-old son called me into the bathroom the other day and was super excited to show me that his pee bubbles made a "Hidden Mickey".

  11. Can I just add..."bite the toilet paper roll." I went in to the bathroom the other day and there were bite holes and teeth marks in 3 places. Apparently it is fun to bite toilet paper while sitting there???

  12. That's it - I am skipping potty training altogether! At least in diapers I control the bathroom/bodily functions disposal process. Seriously, you guys have grossed me right out and my daughter will now be in diapers until her wedding day!

    1. Oh, no. Eventually they will take the diapers off of themselves and "paint" your house with the contents (and/or any siblings that happen to be near and want to take part in the fun)

  13. Please do not unwind the toilet paper to get the roll and soak it wet, thereby making it perfectly stickable to any surface-you think I kid, I think I have pictures of this phenomenon somewhere- And if you're going to use a wet wash cloth to wash your butt, please don't leave it on the sink. Just. Throw. It. Away.

  14. 16. Play the Target cat piano whilst I disinfect the toddler potty. B/c what's worse than gagging and wiping and spraying Clorox clean-up? Doing it while listening to the Target cat piano.

  15. My mum would add "One person at a time!!!" Lets just say newly toilet trained kids can spend a lot of time on the big toilet, and sometimes older siblings JUST NEED TO GO!!! And mummy spent all that time teaching us to share...

  16. My son (age 5) likes to describe his poops in detail, and even names them. I really am not flattered when he names them after me. Seriously, kid. It's not a compliment.

  17. My son stood in the open bathroom door the other day, holding something that looked suspiciously like the toilet seat in his hand. "Mom, look at this! I didn't break it, the girls did!" How does a 3-year-old (or a 6-year-old, for that matter) break a toilet seat??! Argh!

  18. I counted 16. But, oh well.
