My Life: The Musical

Driving home last night, my "newly" potty trained baby girl declared, "Poopy!!!!" And accompanied that declaration with some, well, um...grunting noises!

In the dark, on a back country road, mere minutes from home...I made a decision:


So, I put the pedal to the the metal and I broke into song (which my family adores...ahem. Okay, I'm kidding, it elicits many groans and eye rolls...but that's not the point.).

Yup, I broke into a song...intended to distract my wee pooper.

It went something like this:

"OOoooooooh, we are almost home!
Don't go poop, oh don't go poop,
For we are almost home!

Yes, we are almost hooooommmmeeee!
Don't go poop, my little girl,
'Cuz we are almost home!

We're driving very fast,
So please don't poop your pants,
'Cuz we are almost home!

Yes, we are almost home!
We're pulling in the driveway,
And driving very fast!
Oh, we are almost home!

See, look it's the garage!
See, I told you were almost home!
Oh, I hope you didn't poop your pants,
'Cuz we are almost home!

Yes, we!

And it worked!

In fact, I think it worked too well. 'Cuz by the time we got in, it seemed the "poopy" moment had passed.

Hmmmm...maybe next time I'll stop at two verses?


  1. Haha! That's awesome! I have found myself singing about poop before too! Gotta love being a mom:)

  2. totally love it. As moms sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do. I am not sure if I would have sang the song or pulled over for her to go. Such decisions we are faced with oh and so glad she made it. We are in the midst of potty learning and poops in the pants are so not fun for mom

  3. No songs about poo yet at our house. Both my husband and I are known to break into song for many other things. The other day our 3 year old broke into song about the different colors on a traffic light and what they each mean. I think it's genetic. :o)

    Any potty training tips?

  4. Now, you are one creative mama. That was good!

  5. Ha ha! I would have loved to have seen that.

    Baby Girl is lovely!

  6. glad that your poop song worked

  7. The things we do, as moms. I got to say, very creative on your part!


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with long as they are respectful!
