Recent Misfortunes

*Warning* Queasy readers should go elsewhere.

Carter is playing in the tub. He's all "this is the greatest thing in the world, mom, did you know that? Hey! Who shut off my water? MORE!!"

Eventually he realizes the world is not actually going to end if the tubby ends and I get him out. He runs bare buns blazing into my room. Before putting his diaper on, I get lost in my Influenster beauty blogger vox box.

And then it got quiet. Too quiet.

And just as I turned my head, there it was. The loudest (and only) *plop* to ever ring out on my bedroom floor (it's carpet...). And then a little boy ran across the room and out the door.

So I did the natural thing. Cleaned and scrubbed.

A couple hours later Tom got home. The three of us went back upstairs and while Carter was doing somersaults on our bed suddenly I stepped in something a little too squishy to be a bobby pin or a hair tie.

...remnants of the plop. I screamed. Tom laughed. Carter laughed because Tom laughed. And luckily Tom was nice enough to grab an old towel for me.

Apparently I missed a spot on our unfortunately brownish bedroom carpet.

If there's a stain try hydrogen peroxide! It always works wonders when our dog has accidents on the carpet!

Kelly said...

I shivered. I am one of those sensitive people.

You're so brave.

Emily said...

Ha! I have yet to experience "floor poop"... but my little one has pooped in the tub FOUR TIMES. Twice when he was itty-bitty and it was a little tub, and twice when he was in the "big" bath-tub. Not. Fun. At. All.

Bahahaha, I laughed out loud the first time I read this...then read it again and I think I maaaaay have laughed even louder. But fear not, I myself know the squish of stepping in a "plop" on our floor and it is horrifying. ;)

At first I was like, "Well what happened? She didn't actually tell us what the *plop* was?!" And then, I re-read it a little bit, and was immediately like, "Ohhhh...that's what happened. Yikes."

Melissa Graham said...

Too Funny and YUCK!! Gotta love those little boys. They don't care where they go as long as they go. My son was like that too. At least it was always on the bathroom tile though.

Mrs. H said...

Oh no! I hope to avoid this phase since I have a little girl. Fingers crossed I get so lucky!
