The Potty Song

That's right. You're about to hear the Tiger. Live and in person singing one of her mommy's originals. The title has been cleaned up slightly, but yes, THIS is the song. If you missed the back story, you can find it here.

Now, you're gonna have to slide on over to FB to see this, because I didn't want to go through YouTube and that's the only way Blogger will let me post a video. But don't panic. You don't actually have to have a FB account to see my page. Just click https://www.facebook.com/pages/Secrets-of-A-Running-Mom/125171407494800 or on my little FB icon over to the right and you can play it to your heart's content.

And the ACTUAL song lyrics for those of you who are just desperate to know are as follows (tune is Wheels on the Bus as my very astute 3 year old pointed out to me. I had no idea when I made it up):

Verse #1
There once was a girl named
MA DE LYN
MA DE LYN
MA DE LYN
There once was a girl named
MA DE LYN
Who wanted a popsicle

Verse #2
Her mommy said 
MA DE LYN
MA DE LYN
MA DE LYN
Her mommy said 

MA DE LYN
I'll get you a popsicle

When you poo poo on the potty

Then, when the deed was done, the song, certainly, had to be sung all over as I got her that prized popsicle with altered lyrics, of course, to: "BECAUSE you poo pooed on the potty!" And that time my friends, I didn't have to fake the enthusiasm!

So there you have it! At this point, I have no plans to copyright those stellar lyrics, so feel free to swap that name out and use it yourself. And I must say, a popsicle has worked WONDERS for this otherwise hold out of a child I've got. (Get Edy's they're pure fruit. No added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Then you can feel free to popsicle away!)





'Til next time...

P.S. And yeah, I totally know that none of you are surprised that one of MY children would SEIZE upon the opportunity to be in front of an audience/camera and try to hold onto that limelight for as long as possible. That second song would be Tiger's rendition of "Good Morning" from Singing in the Rain. She's a big Gene Kelly Fan.
