Our Butt Genius

Yesterday, my mother-in-law came over for lunch. Before we started eating, my husband's 5 year old son said a brief prayer - "Dear Jesus, thank you for this food. Amen."

My mother-in-law found it somewhat lacking (not the first time), and appended it. "Thank you Jesus for this beautiful day; thank you Jesus for Nana coming over; thank you Jesus for your love..."

At which point he inserted,"Thank you God for Nana's butt, thank you God that Nana can poopoo out of her butt, thank you God for her butt clothes,..."

Of course I scolded him. As soon as I was able to suppress my laughter.

Later on, my husband responded,"Wow, he's already at the Butt Phase? Eric (my adolescent cousin) didn't hit it until he was 13."

OMG, that is too funny. What was your mother-in-law's response?

I can't stop laughing!!! I just posted about this very same thing in my blog this morning!!! My 3 yr olds twins are always talking about butts, poop, farts...whatever they can think of that is totally disgusting! Glad to see my kids aren't the only ones!!
