Good lord! Moments like these must be the reason people tell their children..."I hope you have one just like you!" LOL
My son conked out at 12:30 without his lunchtime oatmeal and is still sleeping...my toddler ate lunch and I put her down for her nap about 1:45. Knowing she hadn't pooped yet today and knowing that lately that's the FIRST thing she does when I put her to bed...I putzed around and asked her around 2:00 if she had pooped. She said no. So I figured she looked sleepy and would be out like a light shortly so I went ahead downstairs to take a shower.
So, I'm in the shower soaping up with conditioner in my hair and I can SWEAR I can hear her crying...I think "Nah! She was nearly asleep and I didn't hear a "thump"! LOL Then I'm trying to rinse and I hear she’s REALLY screaming so I rinsed as quickly as possible run upstairs au naturale (meanwhile the baby's still sleeping) to find her with poop on her hands, on the wall by her light switch, a trail of poop from the play room, and a pile of it at the bottom of her stairs!!!! The little sneak went down to play as soon as I went downstairs, then blew out the diaper, down her leg, and dragged it thru her room to call for me. **sigh**
She was so upset it was hard to be mad - especially when she carefully pointed out each pile for me. I apologized a million times because she kept saying “I was crying. I called for you..." JEEZ! No guilt trip THERE! LOL So we cleaned her up on a towel in her room, washed our hands, I spot cleaned the carpet and put her back to bed where she's perfectly happy and talking to herself right now...
Moms just don't get paid enough!
