I used the bathroom at my best friend’s house last week when I noticed that someone didn’t flush. This isn’t big news to either of us, she has four kids under 7 with one of them potty training and Addie’s bathroom has a super hard-to-flush toilet so sometimes things get left behind. She rolled her eyes and apologized and I responded that sometimes I’m grateful Addie doesn’t flush, let’s me check on her without having to ask her what her poops are like.
Poop is very important in our house, it’s a very good indicator of your overall health so we’re not bashful with it.
My friend agreed and then sighed heavily. “I deal with so much poop on a daily basis, and very little of it is actually mine.”
Between us we have four cats, six kids (two in cloth diapers and one mid-potty training), a dog and two husbands. Thankfully we don’t have to deal with our husbands (unless you count splatter, HOW DO MOMS OF ALL BOYS DO IT?) But we are elbow deep in baby and animal poop everyday, thankfully we don’t dwell too long and hard on it.
While these creatures of ours can produce such horrid byproducts, they are so worth it.
But sometimes they are so gross.
How much poop do you deal with on a daily basis? (Literally, not figuratively, that’s and entirely different conversation.)
