Picaso del Poop...

Katie decided to show how annoyed she was with me for putting her in her crib to take a nap when she didn't want to go by taking a handful of poop and finger painting the wall with it. (And herself in the bargain.)

When we discovered the "art" I dropped her in the tub to wash her down and Roper (kind soul that he is,) got the Pinesol and washed the crib bars and scrubbed the wall. I have to call 3 Day Blinds tomorrow and find out if the pleated shade can be cleaned.

There has been waaaaayyyy too much poop in my life in the last week or so. But both girls seem to be over the tummy bug. Julie hasn't thrown up in 30 hrs or so. I'm not going to give her cherios for a while. She seems to be doing Ok on the rice cakes.

Have I mentioned how much I appreciate my washer and dryer?

Thank goodness neither of my boys have pulled that one (yet!). Although I will note that I'm having to dress Michael specifically to keep his hands out of his diaper (otherwise he'd spend the day with one or both hands down the front!).

If she doesn't comment here, I'd suggest talking with zencuppa, as I recall her having similar issues with one or the other of her two kids :-)

I hope you took a picture for future blackmail material. This stuff comes in very handy when they are teenagers.

I've mildly threatened Meredith about such photos as boyfriend-proofing her. Till she's 21, say.

My sister not only smeared herself, but crawled across the dresser to the littlest sister (they were 13 months apart) and took HER diaper off and smeared it. My mother was doing ok until the culprit smiled and had poop between her teeth.

Then she had to call my dad to come home.

A useful tool I have in my house is the Green Machine, a wet/dry vacuum/carpet cleaner. It's perfect for poop, vomit and other liquid messes (like dumped sippies on carpet,) avoiding on-your-knees scrubbing time.

In the immortal words of Buffy Anne Summers, "A world of EEUUWW!"
I never thought to use anything but crayons to draw on our walls when I was Katie's age; somehow, I escaped the infantile fascination with one's own excreta that seems to grip most children at that stage of development.

I take it you have bought Katie a copy of the book Everybody Poops? If not, it may be best to avoid doing so...

My niece used to wiggle out of her diapers on a regular basis and decorate the crib, walls, floor, and herself. I'd be chatting on the phone with her Mom, and I'd hear Mom sniff and yell "Gotta Go!" and slam down the phone.

My niece is 37 now and refuses to believe it. In twenty years or so you too will have lots of embarrassing ammunition!

I wonder why people love to share these horror stories?
