Humps and Dumps


Earlier today I made everyone take a nap in preparation for tomorrow. It is going to be a long day. Inevitably both B and M had to poop. I think they hold it for a non-convenient time. I made M sleep in my room so I told him he had to poop in my bathroom. He was sitting on the toilet and I heard a grunt…sigh…splash. “Wow, that was a big dump!” Ewwwww! Boys are gross!


B was talking about whales today and I have no clue where it came from. He has a book on whales that I have read with him many times. I always feel weird when we talk about the Humpback and Sperm Whales. Seriously? Could they have given these poor animals a worse name?

He was talking mostly to Scott but I happened to zone in right when he asked
“Why are they called Humpback Whales? Oh wait I think I know why. It’s because they hump. They hump their backs” Now this kid, as much to my knowledge, doesn’t know what the slang term means or refers to.
“No, it’s because they have a hump back like a camel.” Scott corrects.
“Oh, why don’t they call it a Camel Whale?”
It sure would keep the juvenile in my head from giggling.
