The spoon inside you

Setting: Bathroom.

Me: Oh, buddy, it looks like you have a little diarrhea.

Elliott: What's diary?

Me: Diarrhea is sort of like when your body doesn't really like the food you eat so it tries to get rid of it quickly in the toilet.

Elliott: OOoooOOOohhhh. I know what diary is. Diary is when you swallow a big spoon, but you don't feel it and it doesn't hurt. And then you eat something your body doesn't like so the spoon stirs it up really really REALLY fast like this (whhhhiiiiiirrr!) and then it makes the poop come out quickly like this (whoooossshhhh!) and then your body likes what's inside you again. Right, Mommy?

Me: Wow. Yeah. Maybe....

  1. Wow. I didn't realize it was a spoon that did that. Makes sense to me...wish I'd learned that years ago!
