This morning was a pretty cruddy. It put my whole day off balance (at least my morning). Let’s see, I was downstairs getting the older two girls breakfast when I heard Ben yelling upstairs, so I ran up to see what the ruckus was. He said Soul’s poop came out!
That’s not unusual as she usually likes to explode in her diaper and it often leaks out. She goes poop once a day but it really is like an explosion! Not today though. Today was different. Somehow she managed to unloose her diaper while in the play yard, so as Ben was going to pick her up, he thought, “Well, it smells kinda funny in there.” He looked inside and saw her little poop droplets. He freaked out! Picked her up and carried her out, only to unloose the diaper even more and more droplets fell out (onto carpet mind you) and then he stepped in it! YES, HE STEPPED IN IT! I finally get upstairs to see him changing her and I see the poop all mushed into the carpet and dragged along. So who is stuck cleaning it? Me. I guess it is in my job description (just look under mom). But let me tell you, I hate cleaning poop off carpet (who does though?!). As I was cleaning it, I vowed that we are never ever getting a pet! Ever.
I bathed Soul before I cleaned the mess, put her in the crib where she cried her head off until I finish cleaning the mush on the carpet. Finally, Ben was leaving for work and the car wouldn’t start. He is yelling at me about it from downstairs. I am mad cause I am cleaning poop off the carpet (he usually does this nasty kinda of cleaning, but today he had to go to work… how convenient!). I run downstairs into the garage to see what happened. We both don’t know. He keeps trying (mind you, his car is at the shop getting fixed so he had to take mine today) and finally, it started. He pulls out fast. I go back upstairs and continue to clean up poop.
So that’s that. I feel out of sync today. And cause I am not a fan of a picture-less post and was not in the mood to take a picture of the mishap (plus, you probably wouldn’t want to see it), I am sharing a stinky but yummy lunch we had over the weekend.
Five simple ingredients: sardines, smoked herring, fresh tomatoes, and olives atop a yummy cracker. Now, this was something stinky but really yum.
Okay friends, how was your morning? I hope it was better than mine.
