Because The Saying 'Where The Sun Don't Shine' Doesn't Apply When You're 3

Me: Why are you naked?

Her: Because I need to go to the potty.

Me: Why, then, are you just standing on the stairs?

Her: Because the toilet makes my bum cold...

(turns around to display cold bum)

... and there's a sunbeam here...

(bends over and waggles bare bum in the stream of sunlight pouring through the landing window)

... and it warms it up.

(
pats her toasted bottom proudly, and then proceeds up the stairs to the bathroom.)

You just can't fault that logic.

That there? Totally my kind of logic. I wish to have some of it myself. Works well.

The only response possible is, "Well, ok then, carry on!"

LOL. That's ingenious.

I think I adore that kid you've got there. Sunbeams...love it.

Flawless logic, in fact. Kid's a prodigy.

think she'll be doing that at 16?

That was great! :)

Sarah - if she's doing it when she's 16, I'll assume that she's not a prodigy.

She has a point. If only you had a photo of that!

I always hate it when my bums cold.

Ilina - I do have a photo, actually. I just wasn't ballsy enough to post it.

Oh! If only we all took a little more time to roast our bums in a sunbeam, I think we all might be a bit more, erm, sunny? At least happier.

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! I love little kid logic. It always makes perfect sense.

If we could only think this way as adults, I bet the world would be a much happier place.

Thanks for posting the antics, it made me laugh.

Mine has been freezing all day long! Man that kid is smart!

Would you tell her thanks from my neighbors? ;)

That`s just entirely too funny. I love her reasoning and sunshine really is the best way to warm a cold bottom . . . not that I would know . . .

Oh. my. stars.

That is a smart and funny little one you've got there.

I just laughed my you-guessed-it off.

As the mother of a 3.5 year old I can SO picture this.

Nothing like a toasty roasty bumbum.

Blogger for a different kind of girl said...

With that kind of logic and straight thinking, it's clear she's ready to rule the world, even at the tender age of three!

Blogger Amy @ Milk Breath and Margaritas said...

Can't say I blame her. Warm bums are better.

Perhaps you need one of those fuzzy seats - just don't let any of the men in your house use that potty - you know what with drips and spillage and all (even though they deny it)

7:21 PM  
Blogger Her Bad Mother said...

Kaila - but then I wouldn't learn these amazing bum warming techniques (this evening she waggled her bum over heat register)

7:44 PM  
Blogger Mama Smurf said...

I think Santa should bring her a heated toilet seat.

that is spectacular and why kids are worth having.

She's a bum hedonist! We've got something really similar going on her with 'airing it out' ...

I love the way her mind works.

I can't argue with warming up the cheeks a little...

Oh, that darling girl just makes me giggle with her cuteness! Where do they come up with this stuff?

While watching Dancing With the Stars tonight, Dawson tells me how much he loves Julianne Hough (one of the dancers). I asked him why and he said, "Duh, Mumma. 'Cause she's cute!" He's four. I'm doomed.

You have a smart kid there. It makes perfect sense - sun to warm the cold bum.

I completely see where she's coming from. There is just nothing worse than getting a cold bum while going potty.
