I've Heard It's Nutritious...

This morning The Rooster finagled sitting on her father's lap to eat her breakfast.

"Uh... this diaper is suddenly feeling really WARM on my leg," K reported.

"Rooster, is there something in your diaper?" I asked.

Roo nodded vigorously, "YESH!"

"What's in there, Roo?"

"CORN!"
Oh, dear.

Why even eat corn?

Send a Rooster to Schmutzie for her cockroll.

Corn?!? When did I have corn last?

Casmee said...

Ahh! I remember those days. My kids diapers had things I never knew I had fed them in there!

BOSSY said...

The human digestive track is just a fancy pants system from separating the corn from the cob. Every farmer knows.

pgoodness said...

It is actually pretty amazing what just goes through. In my house, it's grapes. BLECH.

Craze said...

Out of the mouths of babes huh? That's priceless.

Woman with kids said...

...how did she know it was corn? That's what scares me.

Patience said...

Raisins. No diapered child should be allowed to eat raisins.

Batwing said...

Oh my goodness oh my oh my. Could there be a parallel universe? OUR daughter is called The Rooster and sometimes Roo, because we barely got her out in time for the Year of the Rooster. I only just found you via the Cockroll, which I found because I like to Google for Roosters.

Jodi the Librarian said...

If you were thrifty you could just wash it off and feed it to her again!

My older son would chew up magazines. He's part Labrador retriever, I think. And the pages came out intact but (butt?) in pieces. Lovely, colorful poo.

mcewen said...

Soon I do will be enjoying seasonal White corn! Bliss. And maybe, just maybe I'll be able to bite into it rather than eat it with a knife and fork!
Cheers

liv said...

And all I can think is: Damn. That child is gorgeous.

Above Average Joe said...

We have to keep the corn hidden away from Peanut until she eats everything else. Once she sees cornm that's all she wants.

That can get ugly.

Mama en Fuego said...

Ah yes one of lifes first poo lessons, one can shite corn with out having actually eaten any. And if you just shit corn right out whole, why in the name of God is 2 points??

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

Corn! Ha.

I love corn...And I have such a funny doodie story today and no one so share it with..

Oh well.

That face is precious.

I also sent Schmutzie some love..please let her know I mean it.

Natalie said...

Cors is delicious, that's why.

The Queen Mama said...

Because there are few things better than garden-fresh corn, roasted on the grill, drenched with butter. Great. Now I'm drooling.

Patience said...

It sounds like Jodi the Librarian's son has very nearly Fanetti Poop!

NotSoSage said...

Take it from a woman who was wiping sticky flax seeds off her kid's ass yesterday. There're some things that the human digestive system just can't take on.

kellypea said...

Gorgeous child! Corn. Oh the stories about corn with my 3 boyz. And why does everyone but me know how to do that label photo thing? What a dork I am.

Life As I Know It said...

Ah, nothing like the corn diaper. Something to look forward to as summer approaches.

CamiKaos said...

I've always wondered how something that comes out in the same state it went in can be good for you.

Toni said...

I remember those days! Smart girl! Adorable to!

The Diva's Thoughts said...

Aaaahhhh...motherhood! LOL

flutter said...

ok, so I might be rethinking this whole wanting kids thing......

karrie said...

She is beeyootiful!

Max pooped out a single, navy blue Barbie shoe once when he was around her age. I have no idea where/when he ate it.

Theresa said...

I love corn....roasted on the bbq drizzled with olive oil, lime juice and cayenne pepper. Yet, it doesn't digest well.

Your daughter is precious!

Heather said...

Those eyes are heart breakers! At least you can identify corn. My favorite is the colored ones, why is her poop green??? Ah, go-gurt or too many fruit roll ups.

Shannon said...

I just eat corn for the taste.

Little Nut Tree said...

OMG Jess, Roo is your double!! Funnily enough, our little girl Rowan is also known as Roo.. Roo-Bear - it came about as short for Rowan I think... back in the day...

:)

I haven't inspected any poo closely enough to find the corn... have had plenty on the back of my hands though.. damn the leaky nappies :) lol

Hol&J said...

Hilarious!

The Medium Swede said...

I cannot make my usual smarmy remark when cute little kids adorn the page. She is super cute!

My dearly departed brother kept a still photo from his colonoscopy that contained a piece of corn. I think corn along with Cher and the cochroach will survive nuclear disaster.

slouching mom said...

OK -- she is your spitting image! It's astonishing!

Corn. LOL. It's not even particularly nutritious, so why do we even bother?

Augs Casa said...

well at least it wasn't Trix cereal. I dislike changing those green colored poos!!

Kristi said...

Yay for toilets. I so don't need to see baby excrement anymore.

Sunshine said...

Let's not forget the utter fascination of asparagus pee....I'm 35 and that still freaks me out.

Jennifer said...

Corn is so useless, really.

The Rooster has the most beautiful eyes!

Gingers Mom said...

The dreaded corn diaper. Been there....made my hubby clean it. LOL

FENICLE said...

OH YUMMY!!!! I love the honesty of little ones.

Jenifer said...

Yes corn! OK besides being oh so cute and those eyes - so much like my Papoosie Girl's our girls have matching t-shirts. That t-shirt (I think) is from Target last year (or maybe the year before) my Rosebud has it too.

Come see. It was my second post...

Kyla said...

Rooster was making a little fanetti to liven up breakfast, eh? *lol*

Lisa said...

You know... SHe was just "cutting out the middle man" She's an efficient little woman, eh? heehee.

Alpha DogMa said...

Corn, grapes, raisins. All things ruined for me after years of changing diapers. Also crayons. Not that I was ever going to add crayons to my diet, but Danger Boy found them tasty and they came and left looking pretty much the same.

Schmutzie said...

Thanks for sending so much internet goodness my way! How sweet.

Chris H said...

Oh the joys... NOT !

Mrs. Chicky said...

Oh, shoot. We just had corn for dinner. I suppose that's something to look forward to in tomorrow's diaper.

Ally said...

Interesting that she's so in touch with her body that she knows exactly what's coming OUT, in detail. Ahem.

Christine said...

Corn. I hate revisiting that in a diaper. Yuck. And, Sage, I hear ya on the flax seeds, too.

moosh in indy. said...

Corn?
Good heavens, corn is one step below black beans in my diaper repetoir.
g a g.

KC said...

Adorable, corn poop and all.

Shauna said...

Corn is just one of those things. My dad has diverticulitis and can't eat corn or it might get, uh, stuck.

Chrissy said...

I agree whole-heartedly! Why, oh why should we even eat corn.

Also, may I just say the rooster's eyes are just amazing!

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Ahhhh corn diaper.. My favorite.

jen said...

that great big heart of yours, friend. always.

aimee / greeblemonkey said...

Dude! I was totally looking forward to the super-duper special Silverqueen corn I am going to get in Maryland this weekend and you *totally* ruined it for me!

aimee / greeblemonkey said...

P.S. Nice manifesto.

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear oh the joys. It's my first visit to your blog, and this story very much helped me understand just why your blog is called what its called! Very funny.

Jenny said...

At least it's colorful. Try to think of it as confetti.

WILLIAM said...

She is adorable.

Kim said...

I used to look after a little girl who absolutely loved kiwi fruit...her diapers were frequently filled with greenish poo with little black kiwi seeds. Needless to say, I couldn't eat kiwi for a while ;)

Kevin Charnas said...

Isn't that the truth.

Rooster is just GORGEOUS!!!

Damn it, she's beautiful. No surprise about that though.
