Well, we're official members of the Poop is Fun to Play With Club

I can't believe it's taken us 22 months to officially earn our membership into this prestigious club. Sure, Kaylee had the whole episode when she was about 6 months old where she crafted a beautiful poop painting with her toes, but it wasn't until about 15 minutes ago that she inducted herself into the Poop is Fun to Play with Club.

I was sitting here, enjoying the fact that I could actually blog because Kaylee was quietly napping. I was working on some details for an upcoming food-themed week on the blog full of recipes, tips, giveaways and healthy, money-saving ideas. I was also trying to figure out how to tell you about the great books (11 so far) that I've read this year. So, I hear her start to fuss, but I let her be because it wasn't time for her to get up yet, and she was just whining a little bit.

Well, the whining quickly turned into a full blown fit, and I'm thanking my lucky stars I went in there at the precise moment I did or I fear that Kaylee would've facilitated her very own Extreme Nursery Makeover: Poop Edition.

I walk in and she's clutching her diaper - which is not on her body, and she's quietly saying, "Diaper off...diaper off."

Yes, my little baby genius. You are right. Your diaper is off. And your bed has poop on it. And you are playing with your poop. And I am totally grossed out.

So, the plans about food week and the ideas about sharing my must-reads with you had to wait.

I thought perhaps I could finish some of my thoughts by letting her watch Barney on the portable DVD player here in the office. But, she knows how to change it to Spanish now, and if there's anything more annoying than Barney, it's Barney and his obnoxious little pals singing in Spanish, so I'm afraid that's the end of my writing for today.

Playing with poop AND Barney in Spanish? I think I just snorted.

Ha! Very funny! So far we've been very blessed in the poop department. *Most* of it has stayed in the potty or in the diaper. I'll never forget keeping nursery at church one Sunday and suddenly realizing that one of the kids hadn't been seen for a while. He, of course, was painting the tile walls of the bathroom with his poop!

And, that My Dear, is why Pugger Dave does not watch her by himself.

Oh nooooo. My niece pulled that "take my diaper off at nap time & smear it everywhere, including my head" bit once. SO GROSS. Kids are disgusting... there's just no way around it. It's either jam hands or poop hands, man. Lucky they're cute!

((& Is that your dad or your husband that left the comment above? So stinkin' cute & funny!))

Sera said...

That was my dad that made the comment. Kaylee calls him Puggers sometimes. :)

Molly said...

Ewwww! I am NOT looking forward to this, but I'm sure its a comming!

Barney in spanish is just not even something I could deal with.

Candice said...

Finger painting with poo is definitely a right of passage.

I went through it with both of my kids.

DISGUSTING!!

Jennifer said...

I'm dying laughing but know you are not alone! My 22 month old does the same thing. have to duct tape her diaper before nap times now!!! can't wait till this stage is over!

Ha ha! :) I am glad to not yet be a member of this particular club.

I found you through Postpartum Progress. When I was struggling with ppd and post-partum ptsd I tried to find some sort of online community for people blogging about those things. I couldn’t, and now that I’ve recovered, I’m hoping to create something like that for others who are currently struggling. So I’ve started listing blogs about PMDs and have featured yours. I am hoping to be able to do a weekly “round-up” featuring what bloggers are writing about ,and highlighting those who could use some “commenty” support. I’d love it if you’d stop by, check out the “round up,” and, if you have some time, visit some of the bloggers who could use some support. Thanks so much for your blog!
