Dinnertime Potty Talk

The dinner table can be a battlefield of potty talk. Kids can say the most inappropriate of topics. Here I talk about the challenge of simply sitting children at the dinner table attempting to prevent silly talk and giggle fits.

Sitting down for dinner is usually one of the highlights of my day. I enjoy eating and spending time with the kids without any distractions. I make sure we all put our electronic devices away so that we’re all eating and socialising together. I make it FAMILY TIME. Only time we have during the day to all get together and talk properly. It’s nice to hear about what the kids have gotten up to in school that day.

I don’t enjoy however some of the stuff the kids come out with at the table whilst we’re eating our food. Things like ‘Poo‘ and ‘Wee‘ come to mind. Other times it could be even worse with ‘…..out your bum bum‘.

Having to make sure no one hears a burp or a trump is really difficult, because the moment one of the kids hears one, hell breaks loose and it’s a never-ending giggle fit with constant repeating phrases of ‘Fart!‘ or ‘Burp, burp!’. I seem to get the blame most of the time – I have no idea why (I swear the kids don’t hear me when I do it).

Not sure if this is a normal thing kids do, but it sometimes puts me off my food (I think perhaps I just have weird kids). The kids seem to find it funny, so I join in for a bit until it wears itself out then it just gets beyond silly. I just can’t get over the fact of how loud kids can actually get without ever realising!

A kids laughter is priceless though, so it’s nice to hear them do it – makes you know that they’re happy and are having a good time, so I don’t discourage them from doing it until they over-do it and exhaust the humour.

Have you got kids with potty mouths? Ever had that experience with your kids where they say the oddest of things at the most inappropriate of times? What’s the most inappropriate thing your kid has ever said at the dinner table?

I’d love to hear your experiences in the comment section below!
