Holly: Poopy Situation
Tonight I was eating dinner at my parents house, as I often do when my husband is working late (and even when he’s not). It was a fun evening, as usual, and we were getting ready to go home. My mom took a ’sniff, sniff’ of Brett announced that she had a poopy diaper. Oh, fun!
My parents are doing a bit of construction in their home so their downstairs bedroom is now their bedroom. Typically, I throw a changing pad on the bed to change Brett’s diaper. I didn’t this time because 1) she had pooped twice already today so I wasn’t expecting it to be very big and, 2) her poops had been hard today so I figured it would be a quick change. I was oh, so wrong on both accounts.
As I opened her diaper I quickly realized it was a big, messy poop. I reached across to where the wipes were (why I hadn’t grabbed them before I started, I don’t know) and in a blink of an eye Brett pulls up her diapers and flings it above her head! Holy shit! It was everywhere! I yelled for my mom, who came running (as did my dad). Brett had poop on her face, near her eyes, on her clothes and, of course, on my parents bed!
It was one of those moments that happens so quickly and you think, wow, how did that go so wrong? In the end, no harm, no foul and I got a pretty good laugh out of it!
After I wrote this I read on the New Moms of Orange County blog a similar story that was a pretty shitty situation. Check it out! New Moms of OC Blog
