How in the World Can He Hold it?

Ode to the Toilet

There was a little boy who refused to go poo
how could his mom help him, what could she do?
She asked her friends from afar,
so many ideas she picked from a jar.
Mom gave up and just let it go
Before she bit off her big fat toe.
How can he hold it? All the day long
Like no big deal in a sad sad song.
He tries and tries to no avail,
not wanting to admit that maybe he did fail
but as the sun goes down and the diaper goes on
there is no problem that can be called upon.
Then one night out of the blue
He called to mom to look at his poo,
She got up and checked thinking the worst
and was so proud of her boy, his very first.

Why aren't there more songs about poop? (Ok, that's a rhetorical question actually.) Give Zach a big high five for me...nice job buddy.

I am so very behind at reading blogs right not so sorry this comment is so late in coming, but Bella you have some major talent going on here!! Whenever I read things like this the first thought that comes into my head is, "Oh, the joys I have to look forward to." At least now I know who to call!

BTW, I totally spaced writing to tell you how to post YouTube videos. Just go to YouTube (YT) and sign up for an acct. Download video, when you watch it off to their will be an embedding address, copy it. Go to your blog, new post, look to the right of the title square you will see options to compose or Edit HTML. Got to Edit HTML and paste your embedded address. You should be able to see your video when you preview. Any other questions, just let me know.
