Smearing Poop

If the title didn't tell you enough, this is my warning to you that this blog post deals with Poop. Enough Said.

A while ago, well, I would say, almost exactly two years ago, I was dealing with Poop. Funny how these things seem to re-surface from time to time. Isn't it? Kind of like a re-occurring nightmare that just keeps happening? (Or is that just having more than one child, anywho. . .)

Seems now that Kaylie is exactly Wade's age when I did that last post, I would be dealing with poop again. Yet, I wish it was only poop in the tub.

Kaylie has decided that poop is fun to play with. Only in the morning, in the quiet confines of her crib. She didn't realize that her body made such a fun, mushy, (yet smelly) type of play dough.

It seemed fun to smear around the bed, into her hair, on her feet and along the rungs of her crib.
Well, it is fun until mommy comes into the room and has to strip her naked and throw her in the tub all the while saying, "NO TOUCH THE POO POO KAYLIE!!!!!"

Day One, frustrating. Day TWO, MADDENING. DAY THREE. . .My threats, lectures, and luke warm baths in the AM are not working!!!!!! Time to take this into serious measures. . . .
Footie Pajamas.

And guess what, she didn't appreciate it. When I put those footie pajamas (sleeper, whatever you want to call it) on her tonight, she screamed out like she was in a horror flick. But, hopefully, I will have a poop free morning.

We will soon find out.

Either way, I am CERTAIN this is why Heavenly Father made kids so stinkin' cute.

Oh man....that is NO FUN! Good luck with the footie jammies. Catch ya in the morning for a report!

if the footed pj's don't work the normal way-i have resorted to cutting the feet part off, trimming the back side of the neck and putting them on backwards-works like a charm-i would make millions if i made jammies that zip up the back

Oh I am sooooo sorry!

Natalie said... did it go??? my nephew just stopped doing this. it's so dreadful to wake up to that kind of mess. emily's idea...brilliant! refer to jessica's post today, maybe it's time to teach her a swear word or two so that she knows you mean business:).

Oh, I could write books about poop. Chad played with it even as a 2 and 3 year old and we had to throw away so many toys because you can't get it out of all those nooks and crannies! Clean up each time takes hours. I hope your solutions works like a charm! Backwards (or maybe zipper pinned shut) sounds brilliant!

OH MAN!!! That is so horrible! Thankfully none of my children have discovered the joys of playing with their poop. I so hope this ends for you like....last night! I think I may just loose my mind for real if I had to deal with poop! Good think K is so cute!

Footie Jammies is pure genius. A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do.
