My son loves to say the word, “Bottom.”
Because he can’t say, “Butt.”
Because we don’t say things like that.
So he says, “Bottom” and “Booty” and laughs UPROARIOUSLY whenever he says it. Or he says it slyly to catch me off guard so I will giggle.
He likes to change the words in songs, so for example, Jingle Bells would be Jingle Bottom, Jingle Bottom…and believe me, he does it ingeniously with LOTS of songs.
It’s sort of a gift he has.
He comes home telling me about kids from school who called each other names like “Bottom Face, only they didn’t say bottom…”
Or that someone said, “Bottom Eyeball, only they didn’t say bottom…”
And I say, “Well, that isn’t even funny…Butt Eyeball? That doesn’t even make sense!”
But then we sit there long enough and get tickled about it.
