When a two year old announces they have pooped… stop what you are doing and change that diaper.
This could happen to you…..
I had my feet up nursing my 9 week old daughter when my two year old son comes to me and announces he has pooped. (verbally and with odor) I told him to give me a few minutes to feed his sister. She was almost finished, and about to fall asleep. He walks away, and comes back without pants. I told him not to take off his diaper. He walked away again, only to come back smelling much worse. Oh no! My power seat could not possibly be slower… there he was at my feet with his covered in poop!
I had to put the baby in her bouncer, then snatch him up to get him in the tub. I also had to find his diaper. I found that with his pants on my bed. Somehow the diaper was open poop side toward the comforter, but didn’t appear to get anything on it. I am washing it anyway, but at least I don’t have to worry about a stain.
I had planned on bathing the 3 little ones today, but not like this.
So, once the two year old was hosed off by the shower I got the tub ready for bath time. The four year old was happy to hop in and play, and the baby got a wash before her nap. I don’t like bathing a baby right after a nursing session, because in the past that has lead to puking. This time I lucked out. If she had puked in the tub with her brothers I would have had a disaster to take care of.
Hunting for poopy footprints was no fun. Luckily most of the flooring he could have been on was laminate. The unfortunate part is the floor and rugs he may have walked on are all brown!
Yup, I might be looking forward to going back to work. I did warn my hubby to take the two year olds announcements seriously. 😛
