Splish Splash, I Was Takin' a...Ewww!

I have no idea how I have managed to escape nearly four years of motherhood without this happening. But tonight...it happened. The dreaded event.

My kid pooped in the tub.

Go ahead...Ewwwwww!

Trust me, I was doing a lot more than ewwwwwing.

The culprit? This one right here.
How can she be so stinkin' cute, and so stinkin' gross?

I can't say she didn't warn me. Both kids were in there, having a grand ol' time splashing away, when Gigi suddenly jumped up.
"Mom! I went peepee in the tubby!"
I told her not to worry, that accidents happen...BUT...there was to be NO poopy in the tub.
Ten seconds later...
"Moooommmmyyyy....I went pooooppppy."

"What?" I ask her.

"I went poopy in the tub." Seriously, she was whispering it!

"WhaaaaaT?" I jumped up and grabbed both kids out of the tub with Superhero Mom strength.

Sure enough, there it was. Uggggghhhh...
Fast forward to me with a Baggie on my hand, trying to snag the darn thing and avoid choking on my own vomit.

Oh, and did I mention how many toys were in the tub at the time?

Yeah. Now fast forward to me disinfecting each and every one.

Oh gaaaaaaaa. Where's my wine?

Have a lovely evening, all. You know where to find me.

I have to admit that it happened to me too, twice, but only with Ashleigh. It has never happened to me with Aidan. Have fun disinfecting all the toys!

LOL!!! All too funny because Collin has done it twice! I didnt think to use a baggy though. The first time I was shocked & I couldnt think of how to fish it out so I made Fred bring me a big plastic serving spoon! And then threw the spoon directly into the garbage!!!! GROSS!!!! Then spent a half hour sterilizing all the toys & the tub! Oh arent our kids fun!!
Cant wait to see the little pooper this weekend!

This happened to me....when Pres was an infant. Oh My God, I am laughing so hard right now. Even funnier is your recount of the whole event. I am also happy to see I am not the only person who has a tub that has more toys than water in it. You are better than me as I would have run hot water only on all the toys. I can't stop laughing. Gigi is going to freak out when you tell this story to her first high school boyfriend.

That happened to Sam MANY times!!!
Ahhhh...the joys of motherhood! ;)

Destini said...

Wow, how did you get through all these years without this happening? Tay used to do it about once a month when she was an infant - isn't it fun dunking toys, bathtubs, half the bathroom for good measure in bleach?

That's Me Girl !!! Love Poppy (not to be confused with poopy!!!)

Bobbi said...

Your recap has me PMP with laughter! I remember when Maddie did that one time. Ahhh, the memories of raising toddlers. These 'bathtub poop stories' always reminds me of the Eddie Murphy skit...."GI Joe was swimming in the water...and a big brown shark came..." LMAO. That is an OLD skit, too.

EWWW is correct ~ I worry about Caden pulling this trick on me ... but I guess there is one advantage to him always being constipated (sorry buddy!) I can tell when he's working on a poo :0)

Melissa Swartley said...

LOL! What a classic! This has happened to me only twice when Akela was a bit younger, lucky for me there were no toys in the tub yet. However bath time is prime pooping time for Sonya! It's really not a pretty sight since she still has messy baby poo's! Sorry TMI! LOL!

Oh no! It's like Caddyshack in a tub!

Haha - I can't stop laughing! Of course, now that I'm laughing so hard, Simon will probably decide to do the same to me (hasn't happened yet - knock on wood). Simon loves to have a ton of toys in the bathtub too.
Grace is just too cute though - love that photo!!
