Everyone Poops: A Father’s Example

If you have small children and you are potty training, perhaps even trying to explain the normalcy of bowel movements, it’s likely then that you have the book “Everyone Poops”. While it guarantees gales of giggles with every read, it also teaches children that everyone and every living thing, well, poops.

It’s really no big deal, right?

Of course with two boys it is no surprise that “Everyone Poops” is a bedtime favorite around here. However. My husband has brought this book to life a bit, and I am sure he is not the only husband who has. My husband likes to add certain sound effects while reading “Everyone Poops”. I have never made said sound effects while reading it myself (yeah, I’m such a lady) but thats ok. My boys will make the sounds for me. With sprays of spit and rattling raspberries, all three of them have become very talented at poop sounds while hopefully learning that yes, in fact, everyone poops. Maybe the youngest will finally be inspired enough to someday put his poop in the potty. Maybe.

In the meantime, here is a quick video I made of my husband and the example he has set for our children with the book “Everyone Poops”. Never underestimate what complexities a father can pass on to his children.

    That was an awesome video. My husband passes on the same kinds of charming wisdom to our daughter. We’re not in the throes of potty training yet (she toots on the potty) but we will absolutely be getting this book – and the sound effects will be included at every reading, I’m sure.

  3. Adorable!

    And that will NEVER end. They will be in their twenties and still think dad making poop noises is hysterical! Gotta love men.

    You know that any comment I could possibly make would be redundant. Let’s just say it’s a lifelong source of joy for the man.
