Fun with Poop!

"Momguesswhat? I have a new game to play at school AND at home too! It's called diarrhea."
The kid went on to describe a game of pretend involving running and flying and girls vs. boys. I was laughing too hard to clarify the word until later.

"Mom, you know where my sammich went?"
Kid points to his mouth, drags finger down his throat, across his chest, under his arm and down the side of his body to his right foot.
"In there. In my right foot. Not in my other one."
