this is gross.

hi love.

you gross little lovey. just thought i'd share this most disgusting story with you from today. we were by ourselves at home, which means that you get in the bathtub with me when i take a shower. i usually run a few inches of water first so you can play and be warm while i get clean, then we bathe you. we're a few minutes in and i hear you talking but i don't pay too much attention. and then suddenly i smell something yuck and i look down and see suspicious "bits" floating around in the water and realize you were saying "poop" and pointing to your bottom. i resist the urge to freak out completely and grab you up, being ever so careful to not bring any "bits" with us, and run to the other shower. mommy is of course covered in soap suds and needs to get rinsed off. so we're in the other shower, you're sitting on the shower floor and all is well. when all of a sudden i hear you saying the same thing and pointing to your bottom again and i see, as daddy put it when he got home, a "slug of poop" sitting right there on the shower floor. luckily, (luckily?? i guess.) there was no water collected on the shower floor so that little slug of yours was sitting neatly with no potential of spreading its nasty self anywhere. so i grab you up and clean your cute little bottom, rinse myself off with one hand, and call it a day (in terms of my showering efforts, at least). not the cleanest i've ever been after a shower, but neither one of us had poop anywhere and my hair was washed. i consider it a success. afterwards we had a weird conversation about how we don't poop in the bath or shower, and you looked a little confused, so i decided to give up in fear that harping on the subject would make you think that pooping altogether was bad. i've been told more than once that i think too much. perhaps they're right??

whatever. we had to run out the door to your doctor's appointment and the whole time all i could think about was how there was poop on the floor of not only the bathtub, but also the shower, waiting for me to clean it up when we got home. daddy's lucky that i got to warn him about it before he got home and jumped in the shower, only to be greeted by one nasty little slug.

this was gross. sorry about that. i just had to share.

i love you sweet baby.


ps. i look no pictures of this. you're welcome.

a couple weeks ago, Jack was in the tub & was saying "peeeeee peeee" & then said "no). to my surprise, there were some bits floating in his water :( yuck yuck yuck. he of course thought it was hilarious (that's a boy for ya).

Hahaha! Emma seems to enjoy pooping in the tub, too. She then points it out and says, "Shewww wee!"

Lee just pooped in the bathtub for the first time about 30 minutes ago. He laughed so hard. Yuck!

Mack has pooped once in the tub, and I freaked out. What was worse, though, was when she exploded out of her diaper during nap time! It was everywhere!!!! I like the term "poop slug" and the fact that you had to leave it until you came back home.
