Oh . . . .poop! September 24, 2010

Posted by Judy in EC adventures, Musings, parenting.

There’s something wonderful about being able to tell people that, yes, we have 3 kids 3 and under, and only one in diapers.  Many people are totally shocked.  “What you have  2 and 3 year old and they aren’t in diapers??!?!?”  Other congratulate me on my hard work.  Frankly, I haven’t done Bo Didley!  Really, we just put them on the potty from birth so that poops and pees were just a normal part of our rhetoric.  It was sort of up to them when the finally “got it” and could go on their own.

Anyway, so I always keep a potty in the car, because, well, I have two toddlers who often have to go NOW!  So we are at Joann’s today, and toddler #1 has already made use of the potty.  While I’m getting the newborn loaded up in the baby carrier, toddler #2 hops up to the front to “go pee pee”.  Okay, good for her.  I go around to that side of the car and she is still sitting there.

“What are you doing?”

“Going poopy.”  WHAT!?!?!?!?  Totally not what I was expecting.  Pee, I can deal with.  But what exactly was I supposed to do with a potty full of poop?  Shoot!  So now I’m standing there trying to come up with a good plan.  I congratulated her on now going in her undies . . .didn’t want to ruin a good thing, ya know?!  And I also said that in the future, could she do that in the store instead of at the truck?  For some reason, we have a roll of TP in the truck, so that solved half of the problem.  And then I saw that there was a plastic bag in with the TP.  Hooray!  Prior to finding the bag, I was envisioning myself walking through Joann’s with a stinky potty seat or having to leave the potty in the bed of the truck, and then forgetting about it until AFTER careening around a corner! Ha!  Merrily, neither of these came to fruition.  We made our way to the store, dumped the “package” in the trash, and went on into the store to get our shopping done!

I probably should have a better plan for the future, but for today, this worked!

Oh oh! maybe you should leave several plastic bags in your truck, for days like this.
I remember that happen one time when I was visiting you and what we did we wrapped the potty with a plastic bag and there we went home, was not that bad!!!!!
Love you
