Eww! Gross!!

There are certain things about being a parent that are not well advertised. If they were made public, people might never have children.

Here's one such fact: kids occasionally poop in the bathtub.

Oh, I hear you, "EWWW!!! Grosss!!!"

I echo such sentiments.

Just moments ago, I was sitting down here catching up on some of my favorite blogs while Kyle gave the kids a bath. Happy sounds filtered down the stairs to me...splashing, squealing, screeching, giggling...all good bath sounds.

And then, suddenly, things changed.

I heard a horrific scream from Brooklyn and while I was down here and couldn't really see what was going on, it was clear that the overall atmosphere had changed from happy to disgusted and urgent.

I instantly had a hunch. Pretty much validated by the sounds I then heard coming from the bathroom - tub draining, shower running, kids feet pounding the hallways, more squeals.

I sprinted up the stairs to confirm my suspicion. Yes, there was poop in the tub. August had let the warm water lull him into a false state of security and just done his business right there. With the bath toys, with their bath water....oh yeah, it makes me want to hurl.

What do I do? I take a picture of the mayhem and then run back down here to tell you guys about it. Great mom, huh?

After a close encounter with some bleach, that tub and its toys will once again be called into service. But for now, I'm still really grossed out.

  1. Oh my! Izzy did the same thing last week...TWICE! She did it two nights in a row. I guess her little system was in a weird place (as she is usually a morning person) and two nights in a row she pooped in the tub! Eva flipped out! So funny...and yes, so gross!

  2. Ashlen has christened our tub but it's only when Chad bathes her. I still remember my sister pooping in the tub. Apparently I would yell "Mom, she did it again!"
