The story behind the name:

One evening, at the Old Broadway Grill in Fargo, North Dakota, my brother caught the end of a Mountain Dew commercial. In the commercial, a Mountain Dew drinker was riding a shark in the ocean. My brother exclaimed in surprise, not realizing that it was a commercial. When I told him he declared "All I saw was a guy coming out of the shower with a shark." Of course, he meant water, but the idea of showering with sharks has been with me ever since.

Ah Poot

So, Harper is in the bathroom and Mark is watching her from the hallway. I am sitting in a chair in the living room.

Harper: "Ah pooed... Ah pooed... Ah pooed..."

Mark: "She's in the bathtub."

We did not put her in the tub. It is not bath night. She climbed in there herself.

Harper: "Ah poot... Ah poot... Ah poot..."

Mark: "She's sitting on the toilet. Not her toilet. The big toilet."

Harper: "Ah poot... butt..."

Mark: "I think she pooped."

Harper: "I pooped. I pooped. I pooped."

Me: "Did she really? Or is she just saying that because she was on the potty?"

Mark: "No, it smells..."

Harper: "BUTT."

Mark disappears into the bathroom.

Mark, from inside the bathroom: "NO!! DON'T CLIMB IN THERE!!!"

Mark reappears in the hallway. "She tried to climb into the toilet." Mark mimes climbing in the toilet. He goes back into the bathroom, presumably to grab Harper so he can change her diaper.

Harper: "butt..."
