Ah Poo!

Just thought I would share that I learned a new skill this past week... scooping poop out of the bath tub.

That's right.

I drew a nice warm bath for Maggie put in her and her toys and not even two minutes in to my horror she puts on her poo face and out it bobbed I nice warm poo... I did what had to be done... scooped the poop immediately out with my bare hands dumping it directly into the toilet... I then rinsed my hand off in the bath water while pulling Maggie out to stand and watch in wet nakedness as I drain, wash out, refill her tub put her in... then wash her toys to continue with her bath.

Maggie was unphased by the event.  I however am forever changed.

To really make sure I was well practiced we had a repeat performance for her next bath this time while skyping with my parents.   So not only did I have to scoop poop again with my bare hands but I had an audience.

Making light of this I told my Mom that I was sure she could relate, surely she has scooped poop out of the bath tub... Her response is... "I have never had to do that... or I have since blocked it out."

Parenthood is so adventurous!  I am just thankful it wasn't loose stool...it was in fact the perfect consistency for scooping out in one piece. I bet you are glad I added that last little tidbit!!

I hope this painted a wonderful image for all of you out there.

  1. Cody was the WORST about that! It seemed like every single bath for months involved "logging" as Jason put it. It got to where I put his potty in the tub, and he'd go there. (Worked great for when he missed, too!)
