Large Heads and Potty Words

Does anyone else allow their kids to say potty words--all day long!?!  Maybe I'm the only one. OK, not real potty words, I mean more like potty training words.

My sweet potty mouthed boy
I have been blessed with short large headed children--really big!  My 2, almost 3 year old Mase is off the the charts--above the 100th percentile for his beautiful noggin!  Destined to be a genius--I am sure! 

But despite the massive noggin and his still genius potential, I noticed early on that he was behind on his speech, at least 6 months from where my girls were, maybe closer to a year.  No big deal I thought--he'll catch up. But, he didn't.  I had him tested, just to be safe.  When the results were in Mase landed in the 2nd percentile for speaking!  Huh. Well, at least he beat out that 1 percent.

With speech therapy help, Mase has slowly started to improve this year. And, while most of his words are still pretty hard to understand, those potty word--clear as day!

"kno, kno" says Mase
"Who's there?" I say
"Poop" (follow the most joyous 2 year old laughter you could imagine).

And on and on and on the jokes continue with a variations of our family's potty words.

I know I need to put an end to this eventually, but not just yet.  Quite frankly, if it keeps getting my little guy to speak clearly, then I will just let the potty words fly.

Grateful Mom Goal of the Day: Take time to appreciate the laughter in my home.

I can relate to this! I think for you right now it's probably cuter and more helpful for your son's speech. My son John who is almost six says potty words all the time (poop, butt, etc.). When he started kindergarten he started doing it--I think the kids joke with those words. It's driving us crazy!!

I agree, whatever gets him talking! I'm sure it makes him proud of himself. Plus he's happy.

You can deal with it later!

Found your blog on the February Blog Hop and it's very cute!

Feel free to stop by my place!

I have a 4 yr who loves to scream " I gotta go pee-pee or peeps!" everytime she needs to go. lol Whatever keeps his speech coming along, use it! Now a follower and hope you will hop over and follow me on my blogs too. I have 2 but just launched the mama blog in January.

So funny! Found you on The Mom Blogs list and definitely following from now on!

I'm dying laughing! I can just imagine the full-on laughs of a child saying, "Poop!" My fiance has taught our 3 year old to say "Ewww! I farted!" Ugh! I want to scream, but at the same time, she just thinks it is so funny! I let is fly as long as she says "Excuse Me," as well.

Yes, the potty thing is still around in our house...they can't get enough of saying, "poopie" and "pee-pee" son is 7 and still does it!

My son is almost 3 and is behind on his speech as well. We haven't had any kind of testing done yet, but I'm wondering if he'll need speech therapy. But yeah, he can say, "poot", "butt", "tinky"(stinky) and pee pee! of course, he has NO desire to do those things IN the potty. He wants to wear a diaper! I don't know what to do. I have 2 older girls, and they never had these problems!

New follower from the hop!

Hi Kim--Oh do I understand! My guess is your little guy is just fine. In Utah, they had free development testing, I think it was through the school district-I'm not sure about other states. Good luck!

In my family, poop talk is a natural part of the vernacular! And we've got big heads over here too. I needed a c-section!

Made me laugh! We are in the knock-knock stage as well!! Thankfully though no bathroom words yet!! Just random words that make no sense inserted into the jokes...I have really been enjoying praticing my fake laugh and smile!
