A few years ago, I would spend my time after work running, seeing friends, and generally participating in socially acceptable, somewhat cool activities.

Fine.  I attempted to knit and played Scrabble.  Maybe not totally cool.  But I wasn't covered in poop on any kind of a regular basis, so life has changed significantly.

Thursday I came home to my darling baby.  I hugged her to calm her grumpiness.  I gave her a bottle to calm her grumpiness.  She smiled.  She cooed.  She sat on my lap and we read stories.  When I began to stand up to change her diaper, I realized that I was somewhat... sticky.

Ellie was covered in poop.  My purple dress was covered in poop.  Ellie managed to poop through her clothes and through my clothes.  My mother-in-law helped by gingerly carrying little miss poopy-pants upstairs and setting her in the (empty) baby bathtub, fully clothed.  After I got rid of my own stinky dress, I stripped down the munchkin and filled the baby bath.

And she peed in it.

(Ha, ha, ha, I pooped on Mommy!)

Hello, parenthood.

(Love for munchkin.)

At least she's cute.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Pin It!


  1. Nifty Little Miss button. I need to figure out how to do that.

  2. I love the pic with her tongue out, so cute and funny! One time Waverly and I were both so covered in poop that I had to strip us both down to get in the tub. After we got out I still found poop...on her face. Amazing. I had no idea parenting would involved so much poop! :)

  3. Parenting tip of the day from Auntie Missy: when they start pooping out the diaper, you likely need to move up a size in diapers!!!

  4. What a doll! I love the picture where she's sticking out her tongue. Priceless.
