What Happens On a Typical Saturday Night
Adventures in Poop
Posted by Kristi Gilbert
I really wish my situation was a little different. Like, that I could deal with larger gaps of time between stabbing pain in my sides (damn cysts!!! ) to be around the kids. Basically all I could muster today was a trip to the kitchen to get a drink. Little did I know, it would be the longest trip ever.
Pattering down the hallway, I saw my baby girl in a dress and diaper playing with my son's walking Thomas near the front door.
He loves that thing. However, so does she. She has pulled herself up and was slapping the buttons "Choo-Choo!! Shhhhuuuussshhhhh! Toot Toot!!!
-hi baby girl-
She looks up and gives me a hand for a high five. I patter on to the fridge.
My DH is cooking dinner and we get to talking about dinner, food shopping, tomorrow's necessities, and the fact that I'll need coffee.
-you can put olive oil in the pasta to keep the noodles from sticking-
Hmm... I can't hear Hallie...
Pattering to the front door, I find my beautiful baby girl.....
Covered from head to toe. In her poop.
She somehow exploded from the time it took me to say hi and get to the kitchen.
Maybe 2 and 1/2 minutes.
It was on her head, down both arms and on her feet. But better than all that......
It was in her mouth.
Yup, my beautiful little girl sitting in her own filth. Eating her own poop.
Proud doesn't even describe.
-HONEY! Come HERE!! Your daughter.....! She's..... Just come HERE!!!!-
Holding my side, I bent down to pick up wipes and get a towel and once - oh my god- left my hubby's lips and he sat down to start Operation Poop Removal (OPR), I went to start the bath.
Phase one of OPR. :
Remove clothing. Remove diaper and clean the source of issue. Once done, use baby wipes to clean all poop visible on child. Use towel to wipe inside of baby's mouth (ewewwww), outside of mouth, face and head. Use baby wipes to finish exterior cleaning. Pick up child.
Phase Two of OPR :
Place laughing child in bath. Check mouth again for any poop that might have been missed. Wash squirmy child from head to toe.
Phase Three of OPR: Dry child off.
Take picture to capture moment.
Dress child. Feed child yummy food ( preferably something sweet ) to get rid of taste and memory of previously eaten item.
Phase Four of O.P.R. : Blog about the incident
