Ugh my daughter played in her poop and smeared it EVERYWHERE.



She also takes her diapers off poopy or wet.



She likes to eat yogurt but smear it all over her face and then shave it off.



She hides in the closet.

Yeah the Mo-Fo comment was a little funny but not after he started repeating it all the time!!!! We sent him to time out for something and he said "your not the boss of me MO-FO" to my husband.... he used every cuss word in the book. we just ignored the behavior and within 2 weeks the potty mouth was gone. A few phrases he came up with were pretty funny though, sometimes we just had to hide our face and laugh to ourselves.

LOL Katherine, my nephew did that to my sister once too - pulled his penis out of his diaper and jammies in the middle of the night and peed on her! Fortunately, Cole has never done that to me! Sometimes his dad doesn't put his diaper on right though and it comes off in the middle of the night. That's always fun when the poor kid wakes up cold and wet!

Editted to spell your name right, because that's just rude to misspell it when it's right above me!

We call J "Al Bundy" on account of his hand always being down his diaper...but the annoying part is while he is asleep he pulls his penis up and out of the diaper and soaks the bed/jamies..pillow. AWESOME!

OMG Shauna, I just about fell off the couch laughing at him telling the Mofo to go to time-out!

Phew, so far my son isn't a player with poo. I don't know if it's because the cloth nappies we use make it harder for him to access, or if it karma for me being a nurse and spending so much of my professional life cleaning up other people's bodily fluids.

His funniest 'thing' is probably that he is terrified of stickers (and sticky tape) being stuck to him or to his toys. He gets really upset if someone sticks a sticker on his hands or his clothes and won't even try to take it off, just gets more and more worked up. Apparently sticking them on mummy or daddy is ok, and on certain items, but not him or his toys. I once stuck a cow sticker on one of his music toys and for weeks after, every time he saw it he would point and back away slowly while making this odd moaning/wailing noise. I wonder if it is going to be worth trying a sticker chart for potty training or if we are going to have to think of some other incentive? We have started potty familiarisation recently and so far being able to sit and read books seems enough motivation for him, hope this continues.

My son played in his poop once, and got mad and flung it at me when I started to clean it up...he peed on the floor one time and started to "wash his face"
With my boy, the question should be "what is the most normal thing..." cause I really can't narrow down just a few weird things.

OK these are all things my stepson Isaac did when he was 3 yrs old:

*his bedroom is in the basement* one day my husband did a project with his son and they painted a little step stool with his name on it ....hrs later he was playing in his bedroom so we thought. it got quiet so i checked on him. He managed to climb a baby gate into a storage area find a screwdriver, find the paint can, open up the paint can with screwdriver *he watched my husband do it earlier* and painted everything in our basement blue... handprints on workout bench..... walls, carpet you name it. When his mom picked him up that night she thought it was the funniest thing ever and said "at least you will think about isaac everytime you see some paint splatters"

Another time he was playing in his room again got quiet we went to check on him and he was no were in sight ... we called his name and nothing we noticed his clothes were all over his room. We found him naked under his bed and when he crawled out he had a "boner" he started crying when i asked "what are you doing?" so we ddint make a big deal about it and just got him dressed ... I WAS SO FREAKED OUT by this. however a few parents have told me "its just the age" they get curious of their bodies. A friend said her little girl had done similar activities.

Another incident was we were shopping at wallmart and this guy passing by was on his cell phone and stated "you mother fucker" .... Isaac was going through a phase were he was a potty mouth himself.... he said to the guy SO LOUD "mother fucker go to time out" i was sooo embarassed.

When i was pregnant he would randomly go up to strangers and lift my shirt up exclaiming his baby is in there. and that he wants a baby sister so he can be a big brother *he thought he couldnt be a brother unless he had a sister*

Also everytime we had company he would go find my breastpump and drag it out and tell everyone you put your boobs in here! *so much for trying to be honest with him*

Another time we wer in a public restroom together. This women in stall next to us farted. he shouted out THAT LADY JUST FARTED AND IT SMELLS .. EWWWW ... he kept going on and on ....

gotta love it!

today when my son was eating supper he lifted up a spoon full of food and asked, "Is this going to turn into cake?"

[deleted account]

I can't think of any weird habits yet, but I am loving this thread :-)

He has run around pointing his willy at things like a hose which was funny (and maybe weird). He thrust his hips forward at the same time as well :-)

My Leel, 4, sleeps with his books. ALL of them. And has since he was 2 years old. I have pictures. After he falls asleep I go in and move them all down to the foot of the bed so he doesn't roll over on them or push them off the bed. He freaks out in the middle of the night if he finds I've removed any of them. I love that he loves books, but he loves them like the abominable snowman loves rabbits!



My Bunny, almost a year, loves to wrestle. She's watched her brother and father wrestle and will throw herself into the fray. She's very physical. She slaps, grabs, scratches, pinches, bites, pokes, stabs, and kicks. The only thing she doesn't do is head butt, thank god! Usually my husband and son watch for her so she doesn't inadvertently hurt herself, but she's done this before she could walk and sneaks up on them. She has gotten hurt, but it doesn't stop her from doing it again. Her favorite thing to do is stand up tall, with her hands above her head, and then do a body slam onto her victim.

I think my favorite though was the day she was looking through her toybox for something for a long time, so I asked her what she was looking for, and her response was, "I'm looking for a piece of my mind." Wonder where she got that? ;-)

Mine has no interest in playing with or touching her poo either. It may yet happen, but when she sees it, she just makes a face & says, "eww, stinky."

She loves showing off her belly button. She'll lift up her shirt and show it to anyone who is interested. I caught her doing it with an old lady in the grocery store and when I got over to her, the old lady was showing hers off too. At that point, I just joined in. What else could I say?

my son likes to hide when he is pooping in his diaper. he always hides in the same spot. he goes behind a chair in the dining room and sticks his nose in the back of the chair (you can see his little nose poking through the space and that's all you can see!)

My daughter is afraid of poop. She pooped in the tub once and the look of total terror on her face was priceless.

That's kind of cute ;)

My daughter (5) always says weird things too.
When her sister was one she looked at me and said, "did you know I can carry Alyce and run 90mph?"
LMAO.

Neither of mine ever played with poo. Cooper is not exactly a toddler anymore, he's 4. His thing now is growling when he's hungry. I first noticed when we were at a restaurant and he kept growling when the waitress would come around. I finally asked him what he was doing and he said, "Hear this? *growl* That's my belly. I'm hungry." Strange kid....

My kids have done all kinds of weird things as toddlers.
Some of the ones that stick out if my crowded brain are:
My daughter used to eat tent caterpillars if she could get them. It was so gross, she would pop them in her mouth, close her mouth and then make a face and spit them out. So she actually didn't "eat" them so much as sampled them.
My other daughter took ownership of her feces in a different way than most, when she was potty training I wasn't able to flush her poop until she was in bed. It was HERS.... and otherwise she would have kept it somewhere else...
When my oldest was newly trained to pee standing up he would pee in anything that would hold pee. So if there was a empty yogourt container on the floor, or a pot he had been playing with, or a bucket, lid, etc. etc. he would whip his pants down and try to pee in it...then he would carry it to the bathroom and dump and flush.... weird kids..

Erin, both of my boys have never played in their poo either. Both of them have taken their diapers off and because of that have gotten a bit on their hands, but they had told me so I can wash it off.

Erin, Molly has never done it either...I think it's karma's way of cutting us some slack because we have children who were able to tell us off by 15 months!

My little girl didn't play with poo, but when she was 2 she pooped in her bed and trying to keep out of trouble, dropped it down the side of the bed to hide it. I spent the entire day looking for it cause the smell in her room was sooooo bad I knew she'd done it.
The same child also thought it would be great fun to stick shit loads of blu-tack up her nose at nursery, 'cause the teacher left it there' ? She was 3 1/2.
My son, 2 yrs, has a thing about getting naked, bending over to put his head on the floor then shaking his ass so his willy wobbles. He finds it hilarious. I've also had to take him to the docs cause he keeps pulling his penis so hard he bruises it. Strange 'lil bunny.

I was getting Issy ready for a bath the other day, she was undressed and I had my back turned while I filled the bath. I turned around to put her in and she was lying on the ground licking what I thought was water off the floor. It was not water she had done a wee on the floor and was licking it up. Yum, I almost died.

Is my daughter the only toddler in the world who doesn't want to play in poo? Because she is nearly 2 and has never done it.

Oops.. I bet I just jinxed myself and she'll do it tomorrow. Bugger.

I can't think of any specific weird thing right now. Probably too many to count. I'll be back if I think of anything lol.

My oldest daughter loved playing in mud totally naked. she would be cover from head to toe. She is my fearless one and loves to be the first to try dangerous things, she's my ER junkie also, stitches, tetanus shots, but no broken bones so far.



My next oldest daughter would eat the weirdest things and still does at 5. She has eaten silicon from around a window and a tub, dryer lint, wads of paper, I even busted her picking the dirt off the bottom of her shoe and eating it.



My next one, Ty, hated anything sticky on his hands. On his 2nd b-day he would not touch his cake he licked the frosting off very carefully so it didn't get on his hands or face.



My youngest is only just shy of 8 months but he reminds me of my oldest. If I tell him no because he going for something he shouldn't he giggles and goes faster.

my son is in that stage too. Him and his best friend got into the stage together. I told him he could only touch his penis in the bathroom. His friends mom told her daughter she could only masturbate in her room alone. So I was over at the friends place and he daughter announces, "I am going to my bedroom to masturbate!" and my son asks to be excused to use the bathroom.

Hmmm, well, one day Cole was sitting on the couch and took his diaper off. I looked at him and said, "oh, you took your diaper off." He said, "yes, so I can play with my penis!" A few minutes later I asked if we should go put a clean diaper on him and he said, "No, I'm still playing with my penis." I almost died laughing!

my son has created wall art with poop.

He got mad at me once when I was trying to brush his teeth and he said, "don't brush teeth for other people, it is very dangerous. You could get hit by a car!'

So....Katherine, did she eat any?



I found poop on Taylah's teeth once when I discovered it smeared everywhere. That's just fucking gross......and yes, I nearly puked.

OH!! OH!! OH!! Weirdest thing one of my kids has EVER done????

My oldest was 3 years old, walked into his dads store, straight up to a guy he'd known for years and GROOVED HIS NOSE INTO HIS ASS AND BIT HIS ASS CHEEK.

there was no hesitation, no pause for contemplation. We had just come back from lunch, we were dropping daddy off at work, same thing, different day, same guy my son saw 3 times a day, .... we didn't think anything was strange that he was walking up to him, until the guy screamed. omg

My daughter shows people her butt. Constantly. She walks into a room, turns around and bends over and says "Do you see my butt?" and then leaves.

My oldest...

Loved to hide. He was GOOD too. Utterly silent. learned early to pick his feet up so he couldn't be found (talking 2 & 3 yrs old here)

LOVED sitting in mud.

ate dog food.

wasn't afraid of anything. he leaped into a pool and didn't know how to swim but didn't let that deter him. he bobbed to the top and struck out. despite his chunky toddler body he was sinking and had to be rescued. COMPLETELY unfazed, he did it again. (facepalm) he learned to swim that day.

My younger boy....

HATED having dirty hands. He would scream & cry if he saw mud on them. But was totally ok with playing in the mud until he lifted his hands out. (this was soooo fucking weird)

My youngest, my daughter...

just like her older brother... utterly fearless.. I have video of her on youtube leaping off the highdive... she didn't really know how to swim, had her lifeguard floatie on though and leaped off repeatedly that day.

she loves mud, she's 8 now and I can't keep her out of a mud puddle even if it its a duckshit filled mud puddle. (OMG EW)

She loves to hide but she sucks at it. she can't stop giggling.
