A Child’s Mind

I debated whether or not to post this, but it was really funny, so hopefully no one will find it offensive, heh. 🙂

Dot has reached the age where she is noticing things more, not really new things, just more aware I guess. This morning Dot stumbled out of bed and into the bathroom per usual. Apparantly she was having a small case of the runs because after a few minutes Paul hears a little voice, “Daddy, my bum is doing smashed up stinky!”

    How precious! They’re so cute at that age.

  2. This comment is only incidental to your post, sorry. (I do love the creative arrangement of words your daughter used, by the way.)

    For some reason, I didn’t think Americans said “bum”. I remember writing to my penpal in California when I was 15 and she didn’t know what I was talking about when I said my new jeans made my bum look good (or something like that). She told me she would have said “butt”.

    Now, I notice the word “bum” is being rapidly replaced in Canada by the word “butt”, which I consider to be the American influence. (Mostly Bart Simpson I guess.)

    So it made me quite unreasonably happy to see that your daughter uses the word “bum”.

    And now I think my comment is probably longer than your original post. 😉

  3. hehehehe, that sounds like something my girls would say 😛 And I loved Karen’s comment about bum versus butt… I always preferred to say bum, it just sounded better to me. However, the influence of my friends that would laugh at me if I said bum kept me from it… I shall strive to change now!

  4. Karen I grew up in a family where butt was considered inappropriate and rude. So we always said bum, bottom, or rear, etc. you get the idea. As a result I have almost always used the word bum, and I have installed the same rule in my family. Don’t know why, maybe it’s because I can’t stand Bart Simpson, lol! 🙂 I think it stemmed mostly from siblings trying to call each other “butt head” which kind of looses its effect, when using the word bum, “bum head” just looses all sense of power. Bum just seems more kosher. 🙂 Anyway, I am rambling, I appreciated yours and everyone elses’ comments. 🙂

  5. That’s funny! And smart! What better way to describe it than the way she did.

  6. Very funny, I can’t wait till Elijah comes out with more descriptive phrases!
