A Childhood Tale of Success: A Potty-Using Prodigy?

I don’t know how my mom got me to excitedly use the potty at just over a year when I’ve witnessed countless 4 and 5-year-old children in Pull-Ups. Perhaps she was one of those fabulously patient and enthusiastic mommies who made bathroom time fun. Maybe she expressed a contagious thrill about a just-for-me toilet, making me just as thrilled about a just-for-me toilet.

Whatever mom did, she produced a fearless potty goer and toilet humor aficionado. The subjects of pee and poop and burping and farting have really made me laugh over the years. They still do, and it’s really no wonder that I am a fan of South Park.

While mom might be disturbed by my South Park fanaticism, she’d be happy to know that I am proud of her. For it is because of her that I have a string of goofy memories and accomplishments to share with others.

Submit your funniest, zaniest photographs and tales (500 words or less) to childhoodtales@yahoo.com for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift certificate. Contest ends on November 15th, with a winner notified (and announced) by November 30th.

    I do have a child. I do not post pictures of my child on the Internet, under any circumstances, potty or otherwise, so I hardly see why I should be ashamed of myself. In fact, I didn’t even give my opinion as to posting potty pictures–so you don’t know what it is.

    As a mother, I try very hard to exhibit behavior that would be appropriate whether or not my child is privy to it. I believe in setting an example all the time by being a good person.

    Your rant was childish, angry, an overreaction, and your use of the word “retarded” is truly offensive. I’m glad your three-year-old isn’t reading what you find appropriate to write on the Internet. However, as a parent you should also know that children pick up a lot more than just what you intend for them to. Your anger is probably evident to your child in other circumstances.

    For you to tell me I should be ashamed of myself is absolutely laughable.

    Honestly, I don’t think anyone here is suggesting posting compromising pix of kids.[/quote]

    What is going on here is about America. It’s about Democracy, The Bill of Rights, Call Waiting, Basic Cable, Free trips to the Salad Bar, and everything that made this country great.

    But, we can do something about this. We can say we are not going to protest. That we’re not going to protest.

    Preach all you want … people STILL shouldn’t be taking pictures of their kids dropping the Cosby Kids off at the lake.

    Whatever.

    You know who’s fault it is?

    America’s.

    Didn’t you criticize my grammar? I guess you are not as smart as you think. What did you mean when you wrote “who’s fault” who is fault? This makes no sense.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Re 46.: Dear King: IMHO, in case it’s not obvious, whether silent or speaking out, the general consensus on this thread is you’re thought a fool.

    So best now to remain silent. The more you speak out about this, the more foolish you appear.

    So can we move on, now?

    I suspect King of Rock will not move on. And he certainly still chooses to post comments before reading everything… Creative Angel corrected his/her own typing error a minute after the initial post! But thanks for your own correction.

    Long live the King! Rock on!

    [quote comment=”112668″]I’m sure Debra is glowing with joy at all the discussion, even the negatives. I looked at 5 or 6 entries on her blog the other day and found no reader comments on any of them.[/quote]

    I happen to be a regular reader of Deb’s blog. In fact, she just wrote an entry about all the nonsense on this very string to set the record straight.

    There are actually quite a few comments on her blog, but not every entry has a comment and nowhere near the volume that we see here. Probably because her readers only see fit to post a comment if they have something intelligent to say. I’d suspect there are plenty of intelligent people who read Hoboken411.com, but most don’t bother to post every single thought they have. I’m pretty sure most people reading this string of comments are just rolling their eyes. Most people have better things to do with their time than to post nonsense.

    And Elayne (figured I should misspell your name since you misspelled Deborah’s) you deserve special props for being the first person whose imflammatory comment turned this into the ridiculous discussion it has become. Bravo!

    I suggest you reread this thread, many people think the contest is a bad idea.

    You just don’t like that I called you are you ridiculous comment earlier in the thread. Spend some more time watching “Team America”.

    I suspect you are a true intellectual.

    Assclown – I assume you take it based on your tone.
