Advancing My Mommy Ninja Skills



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.

The "nameless" twin toddlers...

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!”

“Out, out”

Moan, moan.

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?

    How funny! Sounds like you coped very well.

  2. Sista says:

    Well Well Well, that certainly was a very ‘interesting’ day, and I think that yes, you earned your Mommy stripes …..again! I have to say that I can’t stop laughing, and I think a few lessons were learnt along the way, right Sista, like make sure baba’s have diapers on, ALL the TIME ;0)

  3. It seems that toddlers know when you are busy with something, and take great pleasure in creating something else for you to do!

    When my son was a toddler (he is now 5 years old and in kindergarten), he liked to dig the poop out of his diaper and hide it for me to find. It was completely disgusting! LOL There were several times that I found a turd or 2 in my purse! Thank goodness that phase is over! LOL

    Isn’t it so hard to stay mad at them when they look at you with those adorable little faces? Your babies are so cute, I would have a tough time staying angry!

  4. Thanks for giving me a great Monday laugh!

  5. Giggle, yes you did earn your stripes. I did something similar a couple of years ago with our grandsons in the tub. Not fun when the older one yells help there’s poo in the tub!. xo

    Before tonight, I could have said that I have yet to experience such behavior from the boys. Alas, one of the aforementioned toddlers left a little puddle next to the tub immediately after his diaper was removed for bath time. Even when they’re naughty, they’re adorable! :)

  7. OUPA says:

    Hilarious. Not so at the time though. Keep up the good work.

  8. Oh My!! How I ever made it through those days without a poop in the bath is beyond me. They don’t call it the hardest and dirtiest job for nothing…

  9. Sharon Green says:

    You definitely score an A+ on that one!!! Although it’s quite funny, at the time I’m sure you didn’t think so and you seem to have handled it quite well!!

  10. Sharon says:

    Oh my…lol…I have sooooo been there! I feel for you, and I’m laughing because it’s so familiar :)

  11. Thank goodness I’ve graduated from the pooping in the tub years. I definitely earned my stripes there though. You’re a good mommy ninja but I’ve learned that no mom is faster than a pooping child unless said child is sitting on the toilet and then in that case it’s like watching paint dry.

    Terrific blog!

    Yikes! I don’t know how you handle two toddlers. Mine keeps me busy. Thankfully, he hasn’t figured out how to take his diaper off yet. But the other night I got him out of the bath tub and had him wrapped up in his towel. I turned around to grab a diaper. When I turned back around, he had a grin on his face while taking the towel off of his naked body. Next thing I know there is a stream of pee shooting across the room. I quickly grabbed his towel and covered it up before to much damage was done.

      OMG – I was so there with you mama! LOL! Too funny. So… I try to be a patient mommy and a positive one – even when they are both on top of the dining room table!

  13. Monica Turner says:

    Perfect! :). Always knew Sean was a ninja (obviously) and now YOU have shown your true Ninja colors; can’t WAIT to see what the boys do to reveal THEIR True Inner Ninjas!! :)

  14. Whenever I put my Little Chefs in the tub I hope they do not do that. One of the worst things for me to clean up!

  15. Laura Jacobson says:

    Oh no….have to say though you gave me a needed chuckle tonight! Oh Carter has done that before too! He scooped it up in a cup…and I was like is that your whale fish…oh nope. LOL…was not! Had too many bubbles in so I couldnt see it at first! UGH…

  16. Tara says:

    Wow! You handled that well! And I got a chuckle :)

  17. Mary says:

    So THAT is why they discouraged me from using that jug to rinse them! Wise boys!
