A Talk with Adeline

If your family is anything like ours, you talk about bums, pee, poop, ouchies, and potties A LOT. To spice it up, one time I was talking to Adeline after she had fallen down and hurt her bum:

Me: "Adeline, did you hurt your bum?"

Adeline: "Yes."

Me: "Do you have a hole in your bum now?"

Adeline: "Yes."

Me: "Oh, I'm sorry, do you have a crack in your bum?"

Adeline: "Yes."

A couple of days later, Adeline was telling me that her bum hurt.

Me: "What's wrong?"

Adeline: "I have a crap in my bum."

The joke is funny by itself, but even more so because Adeline thinks I said "crap" not "crack". And to top it off, my kids don't even know what "crap" means.

So now Adeline says things like:

"Can you get the crap out of my bum?"

"My crap hurts."

"Why does my crap hurt?"

"I fell down and hurt my crap."

Here's to you and your crap.



  1. okay I seriously love that little girl.

  2. This story seriously needs to be retold in like...14 years to that cute guy that you know will be waiting in your living room waiting for his hot date! Thank you Adeline for the comic relief at your expense! ;)
