Mothers and Baby Poop

POOP HAPPENS
But do I really have to step on them?


This is one of our favorite family story. My daughter loves this story so much that she actually wrote an essay (in her 2nd grade class) about this. Yes, those are my son's poop I stepped on! Yikes!

Here's the story as told by my daughter (of course she did not spell the words correctly, but to make it easier to read, I did):

I remember when I was a baby and my brother was two, one night when I was taking a nap and my brother just got done taking a bath - he ran to the living room naked. Then, he sat down and pooped on the carpet! My Dad, Autie Laura and Uncle Todd laughed. My mom came running out of the bathroom to pick up my brother to dress him up (she did not know he pooped), she accidentally stepped on the poop! IT WAS GROSS! It was so hilarious, my dad took a picture of it.

The week after that incident, we ripped our carpet off and tiled our living room ;)

It's funny now, it wasn't funny then. However, I am so glad hubby was able to capture that moment ;)

Did the same thing with dog poop when our Gracie was an un-potty trained pup! I was bare foot too! EEEWWWWWWW! There nothing quite like the feeling of poop squishing between the toes.

lol. i bet it was funny if you were there watching it - not the one stepping in it.

isn't it funny what is caught through the camera now. just think of all that was lost before digital cameras became so popular.

have a great day!
