    Lol let me tell a fanasty tale about poop

    My poop is sqishy,mushy,wiggly,and BIG. My family had to keep moving houses cuz my turds filled up the house and started to break the windows. It was so awsome that i got a jar and slipped a sloppy turd in there when no one was looking. But one time, my poopies were gumballs and it looked like a house that got over loaded with Dum-Dums! Whenever i tell the teacher that i have to go to the bathroom,she calls the princepil and tells him the WHOLE school has to evacuate cuz the first time i ever pooped at school was preschool and wen i pooped myself i filled up the whole classroom with a giant turd. So wen i got to college and it was gradution day i didnt graduate cuz i had a serios pooping problem. Then i forced the dude to let me graduate cuz i told him if i didnt, id poop the whole world over. So my story about my butt problem. By the way i pooped myself to outer space cuz it was soooo huge!

    Hey moms and dads! Are you feeling pooped out? Kids driving yo

    Hey moms and dads! Are you feeling pooped out? Kids driving you crazy? Well maybe not crazy, but maybe you need a time out. I can so relate, especially during these summer months.

    Parents often find themselves feeling frazzled and in need of a little help. As a mom, I often feel like I could use a dose of encouragement. "Espresso for your Spirit - Hope and Humor for Pooped Out Parents" by Pam Vredevelt, is a small book that brings big hope to the weary. Great for any coffee table, this read has just the right dose of caffeine just for the soul.

    Vredevelt, a pastor's wife and professional counselor, shares personal stories of her own life as a mother that will make you smile. Inside, you'll find 28 short chapters with mini stories. Most are no more than three pages, so it can be read while your waiting for the kids after school, doctor appointments, or wherever you can steal a few minutes for yourself.

    Far far away

    I rate this book five stars cuz i love pooping! SO MUCH! I love when youre hungover it just slides out. I give my poop names cuz they are my children. The only poops i dont like is ones shaped like Ns. I eat those for breakfeast. N poops remind me of justin beiber. I had a poop, which had a peanut at the top. I loved it so much that i bought it a wooden craddle and knit it a cap. Once i took it to a resturant and they kicked me and my poop out! They are such pees! I hate pees cuz they come out too fast. I pour all my pee in my fish bowl. I spent a lot of money on fist cuz they keep dying, and i dont know why.
