it's a story about poop

Yep. I'm totally talking about poop today, ha ha! Remember when I babysat 5 boys a couple months ago? I mentioned in this post that the 4 year old pooped his pants and you all said you wanted to hear the story. I've really debated whether I should post this or not because I'm going to be judged on some of my actions, big time. But oh well! It's a funny story so just keep in mind that I am NOT a mother so my mind just kind of shut down and went into panic mode. I wasn't thinking clearly :)

E (4 years old) and I met up with Gentri and spent the day at this gorgeous lake. E was walking up and down the dock eating his pb&j sandwich when I noticed he was walking funny. I asked him if he needed to go potty and he told me no, he'd just pooped his pants. Um, WHAT? We were 30 minutes outside of town and I definitely didn't bring a change of clothes. I didn't even have wipes because the boy was past this stage! I figured I could just take his pants off and throw his underwear away but nope. It ran all down his legs and got on his socks and shoes! Nasty!
Poor E stood there naked from the waist down for a few minutes until I remembered that I had napkins in my car! I started wiping him down, gagging and laughing the whole time (thank goodness Gentri was amazzzzing through this!), and realized there were no trash cans around. So I turned on my thinking cap, not, and decided to toss the poopy napkins in the lake. They would totally dissolve eventually, right? Right.
I was down to my last napkin when I heard E say, "Oh no! Those people are going to see me!" I looked up and saw a couple getting out of a car, and they started pulling out fishing poles and chairs. I knew they were coming to fish off the dock. I look around and there are poopy napkins floating around BOTH sides of the dock. Oh my lanta. I got down on my stomach and started scooping the poopy napkins out of the water, sick! I was trying to hurry and grab them before the couple got down to the dock but they were everywhere! Ha ha, I was dying! While I was scooping up napkins Gentri took E's jacket and tied him some makeshift underwear for the car ride :)

She is a genius. Genius, I tell ya! E was such a good sport the whole time. I knew he was so embarrassed but he didn't cry once! He'd just chuckle every once in awhile :) And he thought his new "underwear" was pretty funny!
The best part was walking past the couple with poopy pants in one hand, sopping wet poopy napkins in another, and E with his new outfit, ha ha! It is safe to say that that was the best birth control I've had in awhile :) And when I have kids... I'll always have a change of clothes in the car, no matter what their age is! Oh and gloves. I'll definitely have some emergency gloves as well!

m&msmommy said...

Absolutely hilarious! Super gross, but SOOOO funny (and totally something that happens when you have children. The least likely things happen at the worst times possible! :))

At least E didn't cry (that would have made it so much worst! :)

Cindy P said...

Oh my goodness! hahaha! I'm so glad you shared this story. As gross as it is it's quite hilarious!!

Glad that E was not completely traumatized by the situation!

Andrea Dickherber said...

Ah! How funny! I don't have kids yet either, but when my brother and I were at the park once (I was around 6 and he was 4), my mom was exercising while we played and he pooped his pants. Being the wise older sister I was, I took charge and advised him to take off his underwear and flush them down the toilet. Obviously a great idea, right?!
Hellloooo overflowing toilet!

Thanks for the morning laughs! :P

Aimee L said...

Hahaha, I just LOL'ed IRL. At my desk. Lucky for me this happens frequently enough that people just ignore it anymore.

Seriously I would've probably done the same thing...ugh! Hope he got a nice hot bath afterward and you had some hand sanitizer...

C.Curley said...

Oh.my.goodness!!! That story is HILARIOUS! My husband would freak out...he gets really weird and grossed out about even mentioning poop. (He's going to DIE when we have kids!!!) I would probably be really grossed out by having to touch all the poopy napkins and whatnot.

When my brother was little, just passed diaper stage, we were swimming in a neighborhood pool when he pooped in the pool! Fortunately we were the only ones there. My parents' plan? Get out and leave! As we were walking out, a group of people came walking in. Yeah, they had an unpleasant surprise awaiting them... ha!

Samantha said...

It's such a pain when they are past the stage of always having a change of clothes. At least he let you do that though when I nannied triplets the girl pooped in her pant in Michael's I didn't have clothes and she refused to wear her pants so I had to carry her out screaming naked. It was interesting haha. You did great!!

Natalie said...

You handled yourself and E perfectly!! Thumbs up to ya!

[oomph.]

Amber said...

BAHAHAHAHA! That is exactly how motherhood is sometimes! You gotta just make do with what you got when you are unprepared or the unexpected happens! You will be a great mom!

Lin said...

Oh my gosh, thank you for one of the best chuckles I've had in a long time! I totally just pictured you trying your hardest to reach into that lake for poopy napkins like it was some sort of race...hilarious.

Sucks that this happened but at least it taught you a good life lesson for the future :) Also, that kiddo is pretty rad for letting you take a photo of him in his nifty sweater skivies.

Whitney Leigh said...

You handled that situation SO much better than I would have! haha what a stud though for staying brave, and way to go you for picking up the poopy napkins. I would have just left them and pretended they were already there.

kyna... said...

You, my lovely lovely friend, absolutely made my day with this one!!! OMG hon! You actually handled it just as I would have, and I AM a mom! lol!
