First of all, thanks for your questions yesterday. I am excited to work my way through them this summer. Feel free to continue to add your question if you didn't get to yesterday!
Ok, on to my post for today. There are moments in motherhood where I have to clean up some pretty nasty messes. Sometimes I find them, sometimes there are confessions, still other times, there are little reporters, sharing some startling news. Twice in the last few weeks I have received such news
The first time happened one afternoon when I let Elijah play with the hose in the front yard. He had strict instructions to water the plants only and was entertaining himself quite well. I left the front door open so I could keep a good eye on him. Suddenly he was in the house, standing next to me when he said
Uh, Mom, I accidentally sprayed the hose inside the house.
The water was not nearly as bad I imagined and in fact was cleaned up with one dish towel. Disaster averted and not nearly as bad as the second indecent which happened yesterday. Again, Elijah came to me and said
Mom, Graham pooped and he doesn't have a diaper on.
Yes. I looked over at Graham, playing with poop on his butt and feet. When I searched for his diaper, I found that he had pooped in the living room, in his diaper, and decided to take matters into his own hands. He simply removed the diaper and went about his business. Lets just say I spent the several minutes cleaning my child and small portions of our carpet.
Anybody else heard any dreaded words lately?
