The best laid plans…

Baby Boy has gotten into the habit of dropping one really big load o’ poop in his diaper right around breakfast time every morning. He might poop again during the day, but it’s always smaller. His morning poop is usually so large that he blows out of his (disposable) diaper and into his pajamas.

So, I had a brilliant idea this morning… take his out of his jammies BEFORE breakfast, so when he does poop, it won’t get all over what he’s wearing! Brilliant! He was stripped accordingly, fed breakfast, and set down to play.

The Munchkin came running for me about half an hour ago. “Mommy, baby poopy! He stink!”

I smugly think to myself, “See? That was easy!”

I go into the living room to see him standing up, poop smeared all down one of his legs, and all over a patch of carpet where he must have been sitting when he pooped.

Fortunately, he was totally unaware of it and hadn’t started to “fingerpaint” or anything like that. Even the Munchkin didn’t want to touch it. So I changed him (and put him into his cloth diaper), and started scrubbing the carpet.

Mommy obviously needs a NEW plan.

    Oh, dear…. you`re reminding me why I do NOT want another baby right now! Bodly fluids on parade!

    I was a whiz at getting poop stains out of carpets with boiling water and upholstery cleaner. We were renting a place with WHITE carpets when my older two were babies — what were we thinking???
