Sunday Snippets – Poop and Goats



Sunday Snippets is hosted by Pure Unadulterated Softthistle, and it is just the right thing for Sunday afternoon. I’m in the mood for sharing some fun and favorite things about my little maniac as of late!

One morning while we were getting ready for work, our lovely cat puked on the bathroom floor. We were rushing around, unable to attend to it right away. Parker came toddling in, pointed straight at the cat puke in an accusatory manner, shouted, “Ook!”

“Yes, yucky! Don’t touch! Dobby threw up!” We shouted.

Parker looked at us, “Poop sneeze!”

Yes. Poop sneeze.

……………………

The Husband was doing dishes after dinner. Parker walked up to him. Richard looked down and said, “Did you poo poo?”

“No!” Parker replied.

“Oh, then what is that horrible smell?” my husband asked.

…(a long pause)… “Poo?” Parker answered in a high, slight voice.

……………………

When we were trick-or-treating, there was a teenager dressed as a scary looking ghost type thing, sitting outside of a house. Presumably, to scare people as they walked by. He looked almost fake. At first we thought it was only a decoration.

I stood there, frowning and shaking my head. “I don’t like it when people do things that are scary to the little ones. My gawd, look at this thing. I hope Parker doesn’t have nightmares!” I complained.

“It’s fine; he’ll be fine,” Richard said as we approached.

Parker slowly and carefully walked by the thing as though he was scared.

I stood there, giving the thing a dirty look, like, “You better not scare my little guy, you fucker.”

At that point, I could see the chest move up and down. It really was a real person! Were they annoyed with me, was I making them squirm, were they trying not to laugh?? I instantly felt weird about standing there, staring at him, realizing that this whole time he was listening to me.

We went walking away after Parker got his candy at the front door, and now we have never heard the end of the scary goat (translation: ghost).

“A goat! A goat is chasing us!” Parker will scream once in a while.

Thanks a lot goat fucker.

This was so hilarious! PLEASE tell Parker that goats won't hurt him..from me. I was there once too. :)

Oh, I can't stand it when people try to scare the little kids either. There was actually someone dressed up scary with a loud chainsaw that came out of his house everytime kids came to his porch. He'd even go so far as to chase them with his chainsaw out into the street. These people so need to get a life!

Ok I totally snorted when I read "poop sneeze." Wee 'Burb has recently taken to saying "huh?" every time we say her name or try to teach her a new word. It's very disarming coming from a one-year-old for some reason. I'm waiting for "WHATever, Mom!" to come creeping out.

Hahaha. My husband used to sit outside on the bench dressed as the grim reaper to scare kids...but he only did it to the ones who were too old to be trick or treating in the first place.

Veronica said...

Needless to say, real goats are effing scary too. So okay, I have an issue with goats. (not so much ghosts, unless they scared my kid, then BIG issue)

Glen said...

Ratz said...

Poop sneeze- That's the funniest thing I've heard in ages, I love that he came up with that, it's a perfect description!

blueviolet said...

Zookeeper Jess said...

My son says the funniest stuff. Gotta love kids!

Missy@Wonder, Friend said...

A poop sneeze! That somehow sounds better than vomit, and yet in reality a poop sneeze would be about the worst thing EVER. Can you imagine?? Actually, let's NOT imagine that...

Katie said...

I love everything about this post.
EXCEPT people who scare kids on Halloween.
As if my kid isn't screwed up (by me) enough.

Shell said...

LOL @ a poop sneeze!

I hate when people try to scare kids like that(um, except you know, when I take mine on a haunted hayride...)

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) said...

I have a feeling that the person has trying very hard to pretend that they were fake. I wonder if he would have tried to scare your little guy without you complaining about it. Probably. Idiot.

A Mountain Momma said...

Whew, good laugh, thank you. Needed that this morning. Poop sneeze is my new favourite phrase!

wife, mother, writer, and on and on said...

poop sneeze??? your kid is awesome :)

LambAround said...

LOL! This post really does have a little bit of everything :)

I hate extra-scary stuff too, BTW. A poop sneeze sounds like it might be one of those things ;)
