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 :)
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!
