6 year old disappeared for a bit tonight and I got curious. I went into my bedroom where he can usually be found watching tv or snuggled in my “warm blanket” but no kid. I look in my bathroom and this is what I see:
Kiddo standing in the middle of my floor, buck naked…. poop… on the sink… on the floor… on the wall… on a washcloth… on the toilet seat lid… on the tips of his fingers…
Me: Hey Poo. What’s going on?
Him: *furtively glancing about* Well, see, I had to poop and I tried to wipe and it just got EVERYWHERE.
Me: So you tried to clean it up?
Him: *still looking nervous* Yeah, but it just kept getting on everything.
Me: *grinning* OK man… no problem. It’s night time so let’s just go ahead and get you a shower tonight and we can get all that off you. How’s that?
Him: *looking relieved* That sounds good. Squirty poops are tricky.
Me: Yes they sure are.
So, he got his shower and I helped make sure he was clean and now he’s all tucked in and asleep. The things we mamas do for our kiddos.
