I would like to apologize for my neglect during the last week-and-a-half… but I know you’ve heard it all before. Like election promises, it’s starting to sound hackneyed. But just know that when I’m not writing to you, I’m thinking of you. And I miss writing to you.
E has really been enjoying the book featured in this video, ever since he received it as a gift a few months ago. He knows it so well, we’ve discovered he can do his part from across the room, not even looking at the pictures (which are awesome, by the way).
Here’s the text, just in case you can’t tell:
Everyone Poops, by Taro Gomi
An elephant makes a big poop A mouse makes a tiny poop
A one-hump camel make a one-hump poop And a two-hump camel makes a two-hump poop Only kidding!
Fish poop And so do birds And bugs too
Different animals make different kinds of poop Different shapes Different colors Even different smells
Which end is the snake’s behind?
What does whale poop look like? [Anyone know the answer to this one? It’s not in the book…]
Some stop to poop Others do it on the move
Some poop here and there Others do it in a special place
Grown-ups poop Children poop too While some children poop on the potty Others poop in their diapers
Some animals poop and pay no attention Others clean up after themselves
These poop by the water This one does it in the water He wipes himself with paper, the flushes it down
All living things eat, so
By the way, I’ve come to the realization that in a recent Toddler Tracks post, there were two contextual videos that somehow did not appear when I published it. I apologize, because that means the post didn’t make much sense in a couple places… but you’re all too polite to be like, Hey, Dilovely, are you losing your marbles? ‘Cuz your post is all weird. Anyway, these videos are both worth watching, even though they’re not my adorable son. 😉 They’re other people’s adorable children – and they are GREAT.
