This is Ben… We call him our messy kid.
No matter how much I wash him, wipe him down, or try to keep him clean, he gets damn close to looking like this basically every day. I guess that is just part of him being a boy right? Please agree with me for my sanity!
Well, yesterday afternoon we had our first birthday party at Chuck E Cheese with both of the boys since they have really been old enough to enjoy it. So after a morning of yard work with Daddy, both boys needed to be bathed before we set off on our adventure.
Daddy picked Camden, our almost 4 year old, so by default Ben and I jumped into the shower first while the other two finished up some yard work.
After getting into the bathroom and stripping my small fry down into nothing but I diaper I asked him if he pooped. He replied “No poop Mommy… Ok… no poop.
Then I asked him Do you have to poop Benjamin? “No poop Mommy” Ok, so I thought we were good to go. I mean you would too right?
I got into the shower to make sure the water was not too hot for him and then I picked him up to put him into the tub itself since he still needs a little bit of help getting in. Plus, I totally don’t want to encourage climbing in the bath tub at all.
As I brought him into the tub, I looked down and it looked like he had stepped in poop. I immediately looked on the bath mat where he been standing prior to being lifted into the tub… and there it was… POOP! As soon as I got in to check the water apparently he DID have to poop. I was lucky enough that he did his business on the bath mat and not in the tub right?
WRONG! He continued to poop IN the shower. Oh joy!
As I yelled, and laughed hysterically at the same time he was beyond confused as to what was going on while I was trying to clean it all up before it actually made it to my feet!
Oh the glamorous life of being a Mom right?
And you can bet your ass one day I will tell this tale to one of his high school girlfriends!
