WARNING: You probably DO NOT want to know this, but….
A “twin toddler” that shall remain nameless, didn’t want to get into the bath right away, and because of that was running around a little too long without a diaper. And because of previous unfortunate circumstances (although hilarious), I went in search of anything suspicious.
Nothing immediately aroused my mom radar, so I placed said “twin toddler” into the bath with his brother. Well, this same kid didn’t want to linger in the tub, so he was removed, and I went to get his clothes and that’s when I discovered the very telling wet spot on the closet floor. “Someone” peed on the closet floor, and it wasn’t me!
Well he is dressed, and I start cleaning up the pee spot, when I hear another twin toddler who shall also remain nameless, saying “Out! Out!” and hearing moaning. I know from this that he wants to get out of the bath, and I shout:
“Just a minute, Mommy is cleaning up this pee!”
I swear that just a minute ago he was very happily splashing and laughing in the water. So I run into the bathroom to stop my kid from climbing out the tub, and I get there just in time (or so I thought) as he is straddled over the side of the tub – half in, half out.
“What’s going on??” I say, because climbing out is very unusual behavior for this kid, and that’s when I see a suspicious “orangey” brown shape floating underneath the bubbles. Simultaneously this nameless toddler is pointing and talking away in his very cute, but very new language that I can not decipher in this moment. But hey, I wasn’t born yesterday! “Orangey” brown and floats – hmmm wonder what that could be!
“Someone” pooped in the bath, and it wasn’t ME!!!
So like a mommy ninja, I quickly let the water drain out, and I grab the jug that I use to wash their hair, and start scooping out the poop, and throwing it into the loo. Wait, one scoop won’t do it, and so I’m back for more!
Geez, give me strength! Well, the boys sure enjoyed seeing me all frazzled, even though I was fast like a mommy ninja
They were both highly entertained, “oohing and aaahing” while I was scooping the poop.
Well, I definitely earned my mommy stripes (again) today – in addition to advancing my mommy ninja skills!
Did you earn your stripes AGAIN recently?
