Poop

Poop:

Poop is why everyone should have more than ONE child. Come on, you remember that first blow out... or the first poop in the tub... or the first play with poop... It is a HUGE deal, you get out the plastic gloves, gas masks, sanitizer... heck, you might even just dispose of the refuse with a blow-torch.

When you have a third, and are going on your fourth.. Poop just doesn't matter any more. Like, when Wade and Jaxon are in the tub... and Jaxon suddenly notices some "floaties" (this is NOT the first incident of Wade pooping in the tub. I think he likes the environment).

What do you do? Well, with your first, you freak out, sanitize the child, the tub and then the child again. You spend hours cleaning it up and you might be frustrated with a big NO NO! to the toddler. When you are on three, going on four, might fish out the floaties with your bare hands, you throw the big one in the shower, rinse the other one off and let him stand around in the bathroom while you are showering off the second... maybe spray the tub with some soap and splash some water around and let it sit until later.....and while you are distracted doing that, the third.. makes ANOTHER little pile on the bathroom floor and it doesn't even PHASE you... After all, it is just poop.

Amen Sister! People with just 1-2 kids don't have any idea how life changes with more!

So SO SO GROSS!!!! Clearly I have only two kids. They are girls and they are 5 and 8. Thankfully we never experienced the poop in the tub thing.

It is so sad that you are so right! I only have two kids and I am already at the stage of not thinking it is a big deal. Better that than freaking out every time, eh? :)

You are so right on. It takes serious diarrhea to gross me out these days.

Sounds like you are having way too much experience with run away poop. There will come a point when it will gross you out again. The immunity wears off a few years after potty training.

Amen to that sister. I had a friend who was also a nurse who with her first child woud use gloves with every diaper change. Seriously. I'm sure those days are long gone.

I hate poop in the tub. It still sends me into super sanitization mode. I wish it didn't. I even throw away all of the tub toys. I used to boil them. Now they get chucked.
