typical family dialogue

Me: Maya, could you help me get Joel ready for bed?

Maya: Sure, Mom.  Where are Joel’s pajamas?

Me: They are in his bedroom.  I put them in there right around the time of the catastrophe involving the poop. (Long story involving dog pooping on the carpet due to change in dog-walking routine.)

Will: Mom, don’t say “poop.”  Say “poo.”

Me: Why shouldn’t I say “poop?”

Will: Because it is inappropriate.

Me: Why is it inappropriate to say “poop” and not “poo?”

Will: Because poop comes from your butt.

Husband: Will, saying that poop comes from your butt is what’s inappropriate.

Will: Oh.
