Sometimes it's easier this way

From Curious George and the Dump Truck



Junior: "Mommy, why is George climbing out of a butt?"

Me: "Sweetie, he's not. He's climbing out of dirt."

Junior: "He's climbing out of a butt!"

Me: "It's not a butt. It's two piles of dirt. Dirt Curious George naughtily dumped out of a dump truck when he didn't have permission."

Junior: "He's in a butt!"

Me: "Are we ready to turn the page?"

Junior: "Is he in a butt?"

Me: "It's dirt!"

Junior: "Wait, Mommy, wait! Whose butt is it?"

Me: "Junior, I told you—"

Junior: "I know it's a butt, Mommy. Why is he in a butt?"

Me: (Sighing heavily) "Because Geroge fell off the dump truck so hard he landed in someone's butt."

Junior: "He did?"

Me: "Yes. He landed in the gardener's butt."

Junior: (Exploding into laughter) "He did? And then he climbed out?"

Me: "Yes. It was a long climb, but he made it."

Junior: "Why?"

Me: "Why what?"

Junior: "Why was it a long climb?"

Me: "Because people's intestines are miles long."

Junior: "Oh."

Me: "Can we turn the page now?"

Junior: "Hold on." (Studying page) "Ok."

That monkey really is a monkey, so you may be right about the gardener's butt. If he was my animal, I'd make sure he was no longer my animal. What I have just written makes very little sense.

Lol!! Lol!!! Soooooo funny.....

Far as I can see, the kid is right - the monkey is climbing out of somebody's butt...

Good think it wasn't a goat's butt. With all of the gas we expel it would have been a forceful exit.

I just exploded with laughter. He fell into the gardener's butt. I LOVE IT. I hate Curious George so damn much. I think he is the creepiest thing ever. And Junior confirmed it by seeing the butt.

Sounds familiar. My kids love anything involving farts. :(

Brittney said...

Well, it's clearly a butt.

Sending this link to my daughter, because Phinny LOVES Curious George. (and his mom still has the stuffed Georgie she got as a little girl and took to the hospital with her when she got her tonsils out.)

Of COURSE it's a butt! Nothing has to make sense to todders. Who cares that butts had nothing to do with the story, they're HIlarious. I always assumed potty humor was a "boy" thing.... my girls have certainly proved me wrong.

I just found your blog and LOVE it. And will certainly be careful the next time I fall to ensure I don't land in someone's butt...

Oh my word....that sounds like something my kid would say! And ... um... yes, I would probably say that back too.

Ahhahhahahahahhahahah! He's right. Looks like a butt.

What is it with their obsession with anally-related things? Xander regularly tells me he's going to poop on my head. Once he said THROAT. I'm afraid to go to sleep.

In defense of adoration—even in the deli line

The toddler was all over his mother. Cam and I were in line at the deli at Mulletville Lite's town grocery store, watching the lov...
