Say what you will

I sent this as an email to my dear friend from work this morning. I thought it was blog worthy!


Yes, say what you will about the joys of staying home with babies, but do you want to know what I woke up to this morning? Not 1, but 2 diapers filled with steaming poo! Seriously, my 3 1/2 year old shat in his diaper this morning! Then, in my misguided efforts to discourage this behavior, I made him clean it up. I was feeding Addie and kept hearing him gag in the bathroom. I was certain that I'd end up cleaning poo and puke [he held it down]. Addie's diaper had leaked in the night and the smell of the soaked in pee and the poo stuck in nooks and crannies as she tried her best to kick fling it across the room...almost made me gag as it was. So, I got her cleaned up and got the dried snot dislodged from her upper lip and moved on to Freddy. He comes in the room to tell me that he threw this crappy diaper in the bathroom trash can. As he was walking away, pantless of course, to go get a walmart bag to separate the atrocity with, I saw that despite his valiant efforts in poop removal, he had a dried streak down his leg, on both cheeks, and of course, up his back. Baby wipes were hardly a match for this! Not to mention, the poo prints I had to remove from the toilet, the sink, and various areas he wandered off to. I think a bath is in order ASAP, for everyone!

Good morning by the way, I hope you had a fabulous long weekend with your family! I have to run because Freddy just told me that I have to come get the boogers off of Addie's nose. Booger patrol, to the rescue!

Just think how rotten it would have been to wake up to that at 5am trying to get everyone to work and daycare!!! Thank God you didn't have to do all that before leaving!!! Hilarious, though. Sorry for your rough start! :)

had to hold in the laughter as to not wake Sean. we had our first diaper blow out while out and about yesterday. got him out of the car seat at whole hog and I notices a mess in the seat! not a fun experience as I rushed him into the bathroom to find the large stall (where the changing table was located) occupied for too long. when the lady FINALY came out and saw me holding a screaming poo covered baby she looked frightened!

I was thinking the same thing...imagine having that and trying to get them both to daycare. Sounds like you had a super fun day! I love the email.

Stay at home mothering, not for the faint of heart! Sounds like we both earned our stripes today!!!

I'm so glad I could lighten the spirits today! Andrea, I give you mad props for making the poor lady in the handicapable stall all scared of your wrath. There's some wisdom here, they put the changing table in the handicap stall, therefore, women with babies in public are handicapped. Yes,that must be it! Oh, and I am grateful that it wasn't a daycare morning, but I bet they wouldn't have had the chance to wake up and poop themselves by 5:30 am!!
