She is a Super, Duper Pooper

Motherhood sometimes means that I am not above anything...

even watching creepy potty videos on YouTube over and over and over with my (otherwise tv and video free, with the exception of limited Signing Time videos) children. Yes, even videos with songs that include choice phrases like "Tra laa laa boomdeeah, I push my pants away, and while I'm standing there, pull down my underware" and "She is the best pooper we know" (with miniature men playing the flute on the side of the bathtub):

Now I know there are some parents who would find this offensive. "motherhood=not above anything?!" I can see the comments now. But I think it's just honesty. And kids like weird stuff. That's just the way it is.

Besides, you know what? There is something soothing, as creepy as they are, about those songs after the 100th time you watch them.

Oh, by the way, this one has been a favorite for my kids lately:

I assume you've already tried the books that are out there? There's "Tinkle, tinkle, little tot" for songs and rhymes to use for potty time, and there's "Zoo Poo" for all sorts of animals going poop, and there's "Where's the Poop", and "A Potty for Me: Lift the Flaps".

But I don't think there's anything wrong with some videos about the topic, either! Good luck!

Oh, yeah. I am sure books are to come ha ha! We already have One Upon the Potty, both the boy and girl version. The only reason we don't have more is that YouTube videos are free. :-)

Thanks for the luck. I think we'll need it.

P.S. Also thanks for the book recommendations.
